    When you factor in the three-game losing streak entering this game, the off-day tomorrow, and the close score (2-0) while he was throwing in this contest, Andy Pettitte deserves a huge gold star for his outstanding effort today. If this was a World Series game, people would talk about like they do Pettitte’s start in Game 5 of the 1996 World Series.

    The Yankees now have ten wins on the season – and Pettitte and Wang have 6 of those 10 wins. If only they had one more Pettitte or Wang in the rotation.

    What about A-Rod? Just a hunch, but, I don’t think we see him again until next Saturday…judging by the way Jeter’s quad was handled.

    Lastly, sign me up for being on board with most of the press lately in regard to noticing that Joe Girardi has seemed a bit testy during his post-game media appearances. Hang in there Joe, it’s only April. If you think this is a test, you haven’t seen anything yet.

      I’ll repeat my post from LoHud:

      Girardi was fine until the 3rd or 4th time that particular group of reporters asked him basically the same exact question about Kennedy and ‘what he needed to do’ to make adjustments. I understand they were trying to get him to expand on his statements, but it came across as repetitive to me.

      Are these guys listening to each other or are they too busy futzing with their DAT recorders…?

      I guess the argument for trading for Santana would be to have another Wang or Pettite in the rotation huh?

      One of the two young guys(Hughes or Kennedy) better pan out this year or heads are going to roll.
