    The Yankees emerged victorious from a sloppy, slog of a game Sunday night, taking the second Subway Series from the Mets (and—more importantly—winning the much-anticipated battle of the initials in the process). The teams combined to make five errors on the night, however, and failed to make the much-anticipated pitching duel of aces CC Sabathia and RA Dickey materialize. With the win, the bombers started their second winning streak after a weekend series against their crosstown rivals; the previous streak lasted 11 games and rocketed the Yanks into sole possession of first place in the American League East.

    The 2012 Andy Pettitte story seems too good to be true. That is either a scary statement for those that follow the New York Yankees or a wondrous one. He has made seven starts. Tonight will be his eighth. And, after taking a year off, his peripherals are better than his 2010 season. And we cannot forget that 2010, before he hurt himself, was one of Pettitte’s best campaigns in years. During that fine season when he went 11-3 in 21 starts, Andy Pettitte had a 3.28 ERA, a 3.85 FIP and 4.00 SIERA. This season, his ERA is 2.77 ERA with a 3.50 FIP and a 2.90 SIERA. That is amazing. Roy Oswalt will make his first start for the Rangers tonight after taking almost a half a season off. The Rangers can only hope to catch the lightning in a bottle the Yankees have caught in Pettitte.

    I disagree that Severino or any young pitcher with options should be given a long leash to figure out his command and secondary pitches at the major league

    1. What lack of strikeouts are you speaking of? Montgomery has struck out nearly a batter per inning over ~300 minor league innings. I'm guessing you

    For the record, I'm totally fine with Montgomery getting a spot in the rotation. While I think Green has better stuff--and thus, a higher ceiling--I think

    You can't use spring training performance as THE decider in this scenario though.

    One of the two guys had an incredibly impressive couple

    Which is really the only metric that matters if it's not an incredibly close race. I still think that Severino can be a quality starter, but I'll trade
