Verlander is capable of throwing 100 mph, so Valdespin was lucky. Sort of. Let's hope that — once he's done with that ice pack on his crotch — he employs common sense next time he's facing such a threat to his manhood. Oh, the Mets won the game 11-0, even though Valdespin most certainly lost by two.
