Andy Pettitte is quite a story
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.
