Thanks For Nothing, Andy

While the crowd was busy booing one player on the offense last night, they seem to have forgotten that Pettitte's pitching was the real reason that game was lost yesterday.

People still want to resign Andy for next year?

He's got a 4.24 ERA and an ERA+ of 97. Not awful, but below league average. Wouldn't that money be better spent (because you know he'd want at least $11M or so) to throw into a free agent like, say, CC Sabathia?

Mussina's been more effective, and he'd most likely be cheaper. I think he'd take less because he's hungry to win a ring before he retires.

Wang, Chamberlain, Mussina, Sabathia and Hughes? Could be the best five in the AL.

Get rid of Pettitte & Mayfraud. Nothing worse than a cleanup hitter who can't hit with runners on. Torre was right to bat him 8th.
Yanks better not go into 09 with Hughes or Kennedy in the rotation. We've all seen how that turns out. Insurance like a Burnett, or even Pettitte is better than banking on a pitcher who didn't even win a game this year in the bigs.
