Six starts of sunshine

Andy Pettitte is now 6-0 with a 1.12 ERA (40.1 IP, 5 ER) in six daytime starts this season, and while it’s probably a coincidence – he has pitched well under the lights as well – the Yankees would be wise to continue giving him the ball when the sun is out, whenever possible.

“I love day games,” Pettitte said. “I’m not much of a night owl and I’m up pretty early in the morning. I really like day games. I don’t know if that has anything to do with it, but I know that I love waking up and getting here and pitching instead of hanging out and having to wait until 7 o’clock. I don’t know if there’s anything behind it, but I do know that I love pitching in day games.”

Andy P. now has 199 wins in Pinstripes, 236 overall tying him with Whitey Ford, the Chairman of the Board. IF Andy had stayed with the Yankees, rather than wasting away in Houston for a year, his next win would have him passing Whitey. He is a Hall of Famer!
