Good news from Yoon for the other candidates running from mayor

If it was a choice between saving just you or a Yankees player from a burning house, he'd save you.

The bad news: It's only because he wants to beat you, according to an email interview with a blog called DISGRASIAN. But hey, a save is a save, right? Right?

(Missed opportunity for a follow-up question: what if all three opponents -- Mayor Thomas Menino, City Councillor At-Large Michael Flaherty and businessman Kevin McCrea -- were in said burning house?)

Other tidbits from the interview include Yoon saying he's a "proud Asian math geek," he can play the piano and flute, and if he was a Red Sox player, his at-bat song would be the Styx song, "Mr. Roboto."
