The Scorecard: Pat Venditte plays both release points

Here's some good video of Creighton's Pat Venditte, the Yankees' draft pick who throws with both arms using a specially-designed glove. I still can't decide whether or not it's a good thing he won't be managed by Dusty Baker.

(On one hand, he'd actually be able to handle the work over 200 pitches a game; On the other, I'm not sure we need to see the first pitcher in history to have Tommy John surgery on both arms.) [6-4-2]
