Q & A

Who was the toughest batter you have ever faced and why?

I think the toughest batter I've ever faced was my rookie season. It was my second or third appearance and I had to come out with the bases loaded with [Derek] Jeter up. I think the combination of still being nervous in the big leagues along with facing one of the best hitters in the American League, I think that was probably the most nervous I've ever been.
