      It’s true. Pettitte has returned. Nearly 40 years old and after a year’s absence. How much can we expect?

      @ Jim TreshFan:
      I’ll take 150 innings, and better than league average numbers… Can he be much worse than Burnett?

      So, what should we expect from Jeter? I think he’ll hit better than Vizquel, don’t know about the glove, tho’
