Earlier this week, Jon Heyman writes that something funny about Andy Pettitte is not trusted now because he said something that could potentially help Roger Clemens, when being cross-examined by attorney Roger Clemens is. Never mind that the type of point of cross-examination, but why not write a different article? Something like Andy Pettitte can not be trusted because he had stopped before Roger Clemens he is not subject to control media for the entire period of 2011-original case was ruled a mistrial in the middle of -July on the second day of testimony, and now unretired because he has done trial.
Before making the announcement to stop, Pettitte Favre played the game for several years, but he came from his best season since 2005, the time that he is tucked safely away in the NL Central. After a groin injury limited his movement, he ended the 2010 season with a 3.28 ERA and 1.271 whip, again, the best from his days in Houston AL Central. And, Pettitte did not blame injuries for his decision to stop. He specifically says it does not matter. "" I know that my body will get to where it needs to, but my heart is not where it needed. "He also specifically denied that the Clemens case has to do with his decision, but then there is a woman that quote.
He also said that he sat for the 2011 season, but opens the possibility to return to the mound in the future.
"I can say one thing: I do not play this season, I can tell you that 100 percent." He said. "But I guess you can say no."
Andy Pettitte, covering all the bases. This is so strange to think that Pettitte (and maybe even the Yankees) decided it was best to sit for the summer during the trial and then again when it is completed? It is very easy. His testimony is quite far from the new season does not matter much (less maintenance and fewer these days, anyway). He made the stunning "ah, shucks my wife said to me 'crazy driver, I have returned! He was "routine. Jon Heyman laugh. The Yankees will go through spring training and the beginning of the season and everything is great.
Mistrial may have been mucked about the plan, but not all that much. Pettitte decision to come back late in spring training so he is still with the team when he gave his testimony to a new trial. Earlier in the week of Pettitte has WFAN Mike Francesa and respectful (he was the Andy Pettite, after all) refused to answer questions about his testimony.
Tremendous regard Pettitte is one of the good guys, so not much is done too clean "about-face," while much has been done to "change" should be the witness-which, again, is Under cross-examination where the enemy to lead the witness to certain questions and carefully chosen words. Clemens lawyer now, surprisingly, that the testimony of Pettitte was discarded, because they claim it is not consistent.
Real contradiction here, however, the possible reasons for retiring and unretiring of Pettitte. They can be completely altruistic. Maybe he did not want to put the team and organization in a position to deal with trouble-it is still not open. And, the day he made a return, no one really seems to talking about it. But it does not matter, Yankees two and a half games behind Baltimore in the AL East and you can not have too much pitching.
