Great story in the New York Times (although it's curious they don't mention Alexander Karelin...they must not be up on this blog).
I don't see any mention of his most devastating outing. Three (!) innings. I distinctly remember that he was the last guy in the Yankee pen, and if Aaron Boone doesn't hit that homer, the Sox were going to win that game. Or maybe he would have pitched forever that night, because he's Mariano Rivera.
As a sidenote, Tim Salmon. Haven't thought of him for a while.
