A) Fisk was miles better
B) Tek's "punch" to A-Rod's face was actually a feminine hand-in-face that had less power behind it then a 3 yr old girl swatting at a fly. He then attempted and failed to lift A-Rod into the air and power him down.
I don't get how that moment endeared him to so many fans... I lost a lot of respect for him after that so-called fight.
C) I've never seen any solid stats or proof that Tek had some kind of genius game calling. Some pitchers preferred him over backups, but many pitchers have their 'favorite'. Big f'n deal.
Now.... I was a big fan of Veritek as a player for all these years, don't get me wrong. But arguments like this are just silly.
