Andy Pettitte is getting older, but just like fine wine, he’s getting better with age. Wow, could I have been more cliche than that? Well, there’s something about letting crap lay around and it attacking the nose more, but I’ll leave it alone because there is nothing stinky about Pettitte’s game thus far this spring.
Pettitte just straight dominated the Blue Jays yesterday in Dunedin, Florida in a 3-0 win for the Bronx Bombers, going 6.2 innings, giving up one run on five hits, striking out seven and walking a donut. For the spring, Pettitte is 2-0; 0.79 ERA; 8 H in 11.1 IP.
This was the Yankees sixth straight win and stand at a very good, but meaningless 20-10 record. Mark Teixeira was the offense once again, going 2-for-3 with a double and 2 RBI. Edwar Ramirez worked the ninth to get his second save of the spring and is looking like Mariano “Best. Closer. Ever.” Rivera’s replacement if Mo gets hurt during the season, so fantasy owners in deep leagues, pay heed.
