"Kent's the perfect example of a guy who knows what to do with a pitch you can hit," said manager Joe Torre. "What I'm seeing in Jeff, he's not going out of the strike zone, like we've seen when he knew he's the one we have to count on.
"A big part of getting your pitch is who's protecting you. Jeff feels responsible, whether he's naked or surrounded by Manny. I'm just giving my perspective. It's been a benefit to the two guys who back-to-back have been a force in this game."
Dear Mr. Torre: Correlation does not equal causation.
That is all.
