There was no scouting report that could have prepared the New York Yankees for Jeff Mathis.
He isn't the regular catcher for the Angels, although he started 78 regular-season games and is known for his defense. Any offense he mustered this season - and it wasn't much - was a bonus. He batted .211.
His winning postseason hit Monday was the shocker of this postseason series. Alex Rodriguez home runs and John Lackey pitching gems aren't surprising.
