Pettitte

Postby NolascoForGod » Tue May 30, 2006 3:11 am

Can someone tell me if Andy has been fighting some type of injury that has caused him to suck lately? I can't find myself to ever bench him...even against the Cardinals tomorrow...I just want him to either go on the DL with some type of minor injury so he comes back healthy or for him to start pitching like Andy Pettitte.

Pettitte does not have any injuries that have been made public, but there has been some speculation that his elbow is not 100% based on the fact that his trademark cut fastball has seldom been an effective pitch this year. In the past whenever his elbow hasn't been 100%, his cutter isn't effective and his overall pitching suffers.

He started thowing much later in the off season this year in order to give his arm some extra rest given that he pitched the second most innings of his career last year. So it's possible that he's a bit behind schedule and may break out later, but if he ends up on the DL with elbow trouble then he's obviously a bust. I'm starting him tomorrow against the Cardinals as well. :-o

I'm starting him too. If he sucks, at least we have each other because misery loves company.

I picked him up yesterday and I'm starting him. I'm glad I'm not the only one. I'm starting Maddux too... :-[

Pettitte is facing an easy June and, with Clemens signing with Houston, hopefully he can help Pettitte as he has in the past. He's going to turn it around, don't sell low on him!
