As if my heart could grow any fonder of Andy Pettitte, having one of his starts skipped made me miss him. Especially since his temporary replacement was Sergio Mitre.
It was amazing to see Andy back on the mound <insert innuendo here>. He came back as strong as he left off. He got his fifth win of the season, and showed domination.
Age is only a number. This number doesn’t seem to exist in Pettitte’s mind. He’s already won more than a third of the wins he got for us last season, and he shows no signs of slowing down.
Andy Pettitte laughs at your attempted curse, Sports Illustrated. He b*tchslapped the Injury Bug that seems to be going around the clubhouse. You’re not going to stop him!
In this game, Andy pitched 6.1 innings, giving up ZERO runs on two hits and three walks. If that isn’t a big “SCREW YOU” at age, I don’t know what is.
Just like when I talk about Phil Hughes, I sound like a broken record this year talking about Pettitte. He’s absolutely dominating. I already think he’s a hall of fame pitcher, but if he continues to dominate this year, I truly believer all the doubters will change their minds.
Keep it up, Andy! <insert sexual remark here>
