The second Andy day of 2008 went pretty well, he threw 2 2/3 innings, gave up 3 hits (1 homerun), 2ER and had 2Ks. He hit some guy, but I bet the batter had it coming.
Per Pete Abe, here’s what he had to say about today:
Andy Pettitte was thrilled with his performance. “From the first pitch of the game everything felt good,” he said. “I really feel good about everything.”
The home run came on a backdoor curveball that was down. “I give (Victor Diaz) credit for hitting it,” he said. “Sometimes that happens.”
Some guy named Mariano Rivera also came out threw a few pitches and got some guys out. I don’t know how that went because I missed it while getting some coffee.
The bullpen situation continues to look…not so great. I know it’s just Spring Training but it’s already giving me a headache/making me want to kill others and myself. Just take a look!
Ohlendorf is pitching in the next game, so we’ll see how he does. For the time being I’m sticking with my guesses and hoping Hawkins’ performance today is not standard.
