Pettitte throws off a half mound

By

Chad Jennings delivers the good news. Andy Pettitte threw 25 pitches off a half mound today, which puts him one step closer to a return. He says he’ll throw another bullpen before making a rehab start. He’ll need at least one before he joins the rotation.

    Hooray :D :D :D

    (I enjoyed LoHud’s “Pettitte gets on the mound” headline though, so I could make dirty jokes about it)

      I heard Pettitte went deep and thick today.

        The ‘deep and thick’ followed by John ‘Heyman’ (which is similar to another word) brought me interesting thoughts and feelings yesterday.

        Way to get it in early….the deep and thickness, that is

    All jokes aside, this is great news. Once we get Andy and Ace back, they will be as close to full strength as they have been in months.

    According to Michael Kay this will be “a trade”

    The Yankees are obviously desperate to get him back. They have the best record in baseball and they are rushing Andy for no reason. They pickup all these new players at the deadline that they don’t really need. Just a desperate, greedy, organization.

      How someone as dumb as Mike Lupica hasn’t accidentally killed himself with his laptop computer shocks me.

      If the Yankees hadnt made any moves , Lupica would have criticized that too. He is shallow and narrow

        Mike Lupica is the exact opposite of deep and thick.
