A former New York Yankees batboy named Luis Castillo has a book out. Excerpts of that book have been printed in the New York Post. Among the details revealed by Castillo is the milquetoast assertation that Yankees captain Derek Jeter prefers women with “a nice smile and personality.” Castillo didn’t talk about Jeter’s herpes rumors.
A slightly more hilarious tidbit was porn addict outfielder Hideki Matsui’s guarantee before Game 7 of the 20004 ALCS. After blowing a 3-0 lead in the series, Matsui guaranteed a Yankees win in Game 7. The Yankees lost and the Boston Red Sox went on to win their first World Series in six generations. Matsui’s exact prediction on what the team would do in the series finale:
“Kick ass. Pop champagne. Get some ho’s.”
