MT: It's strictly when guys do photo shoots or they style it up. We're ballplayers. We're dirty. We stink. If you get dressed up, put on some makeup and a nice suit, you better believe you're going to hear it from us.
Have you ever watched one of your home runs too long at the plate?
MT: I don't think I have. I believe if you're going to do it again, it's not that big a deal. Seems to me that the guys who watch the ball too long are guys who've hit five or 10 in their careers.
Ever say anything to the pitcher after a homer?
MT: Nope, never have. The pitcher's going to strike me out a lot more often than I'm going to hit a home run off him. He doesn't dance around the mound whenever he strikes me out.
Guaranteeing a World Series this year?
Is it a disappointment if you don't win the World Series?
MT: If you're a Yankees fan and we don't win the World Series, it's the end of the world. I'd never have it any other way.
