• Pettitte leaves game early after being hit with comebacker

    Apparently it is not a good day to be a Yankeesí starting pitcher. Just hours after we learned that C.C. Sabathia would be hitting the disabled list for the first time in his tenure with the Yankees, Andy Pettitte was forced to leave todayís game in the fifth inning after being struck in the ankle area by a line drive. Pettitte hobbled around and attempted to stay in the game, but he was clearly treating the right foot/ankle very gingerly, and limped off the mound after delivering a pitch. At that point Joe Girardi decided to play it safe and call on his bullpen early. Hopefully itís just one of those things that hurts like the Dickens, and Pettitte will be able to make his next start as scheduled after treating the soreness.

    I am tired of Joe, I think a change would be good. I also think that he did earn the right to return if he wants to.

    theres a bigger difference than that. Jeter actually deserved one.

    The biggest difference between Ortiz's and Jeter's farewell tour is that Ortiz can actually start on a major league team at the time.

    Joe won with youth and promptly benched most of them. He handled Judge terribly before he got hurt (a 24 year old doesn't need that many days off to "rest").
