He's barely off his low-mid-4s era and low-mid-1.40s whip average he had his last 3 years.
His whip is up the equivalent of just over 1 h/bb per 9 innings, while his K-rate is down about 1 per 9 innings... He turned 37 the other day, so it's hard to scratch my head about this one -- he's right where he should be.
STATS Inc. Sat, Jun 20 Pettitte held Florida to one run and three hits while striking out seven in seven innings as the Yankees beat the Marlins 5-1 on Friday night. Pettitte also hit an RBI double, driving in his first run since Aug. 26, 2006, while with Houston.
Advice: Pettitte improved to 4-1 with a 2.35 ERA in six road starts this season, and the Yankees are 5-1 in those games. The left-hander is 3-2 with a 5.77 ERA at new Yankee Stadium, which has been criticized for its hitter-friendly dimensions. "They hit a couple balls tonight that would have been home runs probably at Yankee Stadium," Pettitte said Friday. "So instead of giving up one run, I might have given up three or four tonight at home."
