by the way, im wondering why pettite is deamed such an asset. i know hes one of their few farm boys, and hes a lefty, but looking back at his stats, theyre not all that impressive. his strikeout totals werent all that high, and his era was over 4 many years, with one year being as high as 4.70. the only standout were his wins, usually accompanied by 10 or so losses. even batters avg against him were very high for such a valued pitcher. just seems kind of strange. fill me in on anything im missing here. maybe im not seeing a bigger picture or something.
Nah, I agree with you. Pettitte is overrated in my humble opinion. Yes, he goes out and pitches every 5th day, but his win totals are misleading. Era/whip/k's matter more to me than wins. Obviously in real life, Pettitte is more valuable to the Yankees than he is to us in the fantasy world.
