Pregame Notes 20 April 2008

The Yankees need a win today, but, more than that, they need Andy Pettitte to go more than six innings and they need their offense to actually show up at the ballpark today.

The lack of production from certain batters is hurting almost (but not quite) as much as the lack of starting pitching over the recent few games.

It's frustrating, because the rotation certainly has the talent to win every game, and while that won't happen, one would hope that they could at least make it out of the third inning before getting yanked.

Ross Ohlendorf played hero last night and has saved most of the bullpen so they are available today.

One gets the feeling that the off-day tomorrow will help, a lot. The team will finally get a chance to rest, and perhaps all this recent losing is is everyone being just a little bit overtired...

But that's being delusional optimistic.

  1. Glad that Pettitte is starting. The Yanks need a day off to regroup and make some roster changes. Duncan should be back up. They also need to separate Hughes and Kennedy in the rotation so they don't kill the bullpen on consecutive days.
