Look what people have to say about the RLYW!

CAIRO just takes the Marcels and changes the underlying assumptions and components in a bunch of ways that make the Yankees look better.

Wow, two stupid posts in one day. I think you’ve reached your yearly quota.

I don’t know if any of you current posters were around for that, but if so, I just can’t understand how you can call yourselves Yankee fans. Pathetic quitters is what you sounded like. Of the lame posts I could stand to read, the only person who had any confidence in the Yankees at that point was a (yeesh) Red Sox fan.
Jeter is King

Quite the attitude you have SG. Maybe you should shitcan this blog and join Steve at WasWatching? Or follow some other stupid team that has made the PS 15 of the last 17 years. Jeez… and some people think Yankee fans are entitled.

TGS NY: Sources: Andy Pettitte returning

TAMPA, Fla.—Left-hander Andy Pettitte is coming back to the New York Yankees.

Pettitte, who retired before last season, has agreed to a $2.5 million minor league deal and will work his way back into shape, baseball sources told ESPN The Magazine’s Buster Olney.

Pettitte started 21 games in 2010 for the Yankees, going 11-3 with a 3.28 ERA. He was 14-8 with a 4.16 ERA in 2009, his last full season.

My sources have procured an exclusive picture of Pettitte working his way back into shape.

Yeah, I used the same pic and joke last year.  So what?

Pettitte can probably platoon with Andruw Jones at DH and provide more offense than Raul Ibanez.

Seriously though, I don’t get this.  Isn’t starting pitching the last area of need for the Yankees?  That being said, I’m happy to see how this works out.  It can’t hurt, really.

Update: Pettitte’s CAIRO percentile forecasts added below:

% G GS W L IP H R ER HR BB HBP SO RA ERA FIP RAR WAR
80% 25 25 10 7 152 145 64 57 12 43 2 121 3.76 3.38 3.28 39 3.9
65% 23 23 9 7 140 139 63 57 13 43 3 106 4.09 3.69 3.64 31 3.1
Baseline 21 21 8 6 127 132 62 57 13 42 3 92 4.42 4.01 4.00 23 2.3
35% 17 17 6 5 102 110 54 49 12 36 4 69 4.75 4.32 4.37 15 1.5
20% 15 15 5 5 89 101 50 46 12 34 4 57 5.09 4.63 4.73 10 1.0

FIP: Fielding-independent pitching
RAR: Runs saved above replacement level using RA
WAR: Wins above replacement level (RAR divided by 10)
