Old Reliable Regains my Confidence in Yanks

The Yankees were beat last night by the bloody Angels, again. But Andy Pettitte proved he has moved past his left shoulder fatigue that caused him to miss his previous start.

Joba Chamberlain’s awful last nine starts coupled with Chad Gaudin taking Sergio Mitre’s spot in the rotation made me even more worried about the Yankees’ rotation heading into the postseason.

This is Pettitte’s 12th year in pinstripes, and is proving once again that he’s still got it. During his long career in New York, he is 191-108 with a 4.02 ERA and a 1.39 WHIP. Those career totals closely resemble his numbers this season, which is more than I expected out of the 37-year-old southpaw.

I would also like to correct myself, and share with you that the Yankees are now 0-4 at Angel Stadium this season, and are 3-5 against the Halos overall.
