$20 Says He Could Still Outhit Doug Mientkiewicz

Andy Pettitte threw a simulated game in Tampa today, and had an unusal defense behind him. Throw Cano at 2B and I would honestly be surprised if this infield wouldn't be better than the current one.
Posada caught Pettitte. The infield was A-Rod, Jeter, minor-league second baseman Kevin Russo and a slightly older, slick-fielding first baseman named Donald Arthur Mattingly.

Mattingly made a play on Phillips in the final inning. In the same inning, Jeter fielded a ball and threw short, forcing Mattingly to make a scoop.

So, Derek, did you do that on purpose?

“Nah,” said Jeter, who was grinning ear-to-ear.

At first glance, I thought your header said "still outshit Doug Mientkiewicz". Which I'm sure Donnie could do too.
