Morning Bits: Offense, Pettitte, Closer

Good morning everyone and happy Saturday to you all. A great outing by Pettitte last night and the bats came through at the very end of the game. Let’s hope that gets them going. Onto the morning links.

— The Yankees offense last night  barely got Andy Pettitte the win. It was only a 1 run lead going into the 8th before the Yankees hit 2 HR’s.

— Andy Pettitte must have found a way to rewind time because last night he was pitching like it was 1996.

— This one is not about the Yankees, but I found this story amusing: Dusty Baker the manager of the Reds had a problem getting into Yankee Stadium

— And last but not least, I wrote an article for Yahoo! talking about who should be the closer now that Mariano Rivera is sidelined for the season. Keep in mind that I wrote this article before David Robertson was sent to the DL.
