I liked Johnson's move. It would have been nicer to see Ortiz jump away, but Randy's pitch didn't even hit the batter. Larry Brooks:

IT was about time. It was about time a Yankee pitcher protected his buds in the metaphorical foxhole. It was about time the Yankees got tired of having their hitters serve as standing targets in the box.

It was about time the Yankees started taking care of their own, because if not them, who?
