Youth Mike Mitchell Jersey Yu Darvish had a poor outing in his last start against the Marlins, giving up 10 runs in 3.2 innings pitched. A few days after that game, Yahoo Sports’ Jeff Passan said he was told Miami knew what was coming from Darvish because he was unknowingly giving away his pitches.
I wasn’t quite sure if I was ready for the big lights of New York, but I took a chance. And thank God I did. My first year, 1996, you’re obviously playing with some great players. Wade Boggs was on that team. He’s here in the Hall of Fame. There were some other guys that will be here shortly.

But just the opportunity not only just to play in New York but just to play with the guys that I was able to play with. I really don’t have enough time to go through them all, but they know who they are. The first year in New York, ’96, you know, playing in the World Series against the Braves, the Braves winning their first two games in New York. We go to Atlanta; they had already had the champagne ready. We knew that. George Steinbrenner came out to say, you guys don’t have a chance. You’re not going to win.
I don’t know if he really meant that, but it worked if he didn’t. Jimmy Leyritz hit a home run late in the game to tie the game for us to go to extra innings, and we ended up winning that game in extra innings, and from that point it was over. I’ll never forget the last out that was made hit to Charlie Hayes, pop fly down the foul line on third base, him catching the ball and raising his hand. I was finally a world champion.
