Mark Feinsand shares that Andy Pettitte blames himself for the Yankees not being in the post-season this year – and that his shoulder will not allow him to pitch again this season.
At this moment, Pettitte’s RSAA total for the season is -1 and his ERA+ mark is 95. So, it’s clear that Andy was just a “league average” pitcher this season. Still, even in a “bad” year, he won 14 games in 33 starts giving the team 204 innings pitched…with many innings coming while he was hurting.
Andy Pettitte is a great competitor. I was happy that he was on the Yankees this season. And, I hope that he comes back to New York again in 2009.
