    “One thing that we’ve seen Freddy be really good at, is minimize the damage and make good pitches with people on base,” Manager Joe Girardi said. “But he gave up a lot of two-out runs today, and that was the difference.”

    Before the game Girardi was noncommittal about what might happen when Pettitte is ready to return around May 10.

    “I try not to worry about things that are not right in front of me,” he said. “We are a ways away. As a manager, you’ve got enough to handle on that day and the next day that I try not to think 25 days ahead.”
    Okay - I had to laugh at this:
    He held the Yankees scoreless over the next six innings to win his first game of the season and his first game against his former team. But after the first inning, in which he gave up all three runs, it seemed it would go much differently, and Pavano returned to the dugout disgusted with himself.

    “I was kicking myself in the butt,” he said.
    Oh, so that's how you kept hurting it.

    Garcia's got 4 more starts to make before Pettitte is projected to be ready. Hopefully what we're seeing is early season rust that he can scrape off.

    It would be one thing if he was facing juggurnaut offenses, but the O's and Twins are damn near punchless. Hell he made Mauer and Morneau look like it was 2006.

    I doubt that freddy and others would say that the Twins are punchless, after tearing us apart last night, at least not with likes of Morneau, and Mauer. Can't we at the very least try to be a little careful with the oppositions power, or are we out to pad every ones stats??

    I'm not really "jumping down his throat" but for a guy who griped so much about the Yankees having too many pitchers i expect more from him.

    This Freddy is the Freddy I was expecting at the beginning of last season. I suspect he'll rebound a little but if he doesn't, we have Andy and Pineda running next month.

    With Pineda out of the picture, we are really going to need last season Garcia back.

    I don't have a good feeling about Garcia and what he can contribute this season. I expect today's game will be a rough one for him.

    Little doubt of that which is why he wasn't used yesterday.

    That was an astoundingly worthless and predictable performance. Chances are this |_________________________________| high he makes his next start against Detroit.

    Garcia throws pies.

    With Garcia pitching so poorly, I do not see how you can go wrong with either at this point. As good as Garcia was last year, he has been been anything but in 2012.

    Freddy has become an excellent batting practice pitcher for the opposition.

    Hope Andy (unlike Pineda ) has no setbacks as he readies for the season. This team needs him. Or David Phelps should be given the next few Garcia starts and bring someone else up as the long man.

    Throw Mitchell in their too. We have all this depth...its time to use it as opposed to relying on a washed up 36 year old who's stuff is gone.

    By the time Pettitte's back, he will take Phelps' place. Phelps will be back to the No.6 spot then.

    Well, I've seen enough of this guy. Bullpen/DFA/release... but please no more starts.

    Why not sign Roy Oswalt?

    I've seen enough of Freddy. Do not Want.
