Pettitte A No Go..He Will Not Start The Season..Blizzard Wrap..THE TOP SNOWSTORM EVER IN CT.
Brain Cashman cleared up many questions that have surrounded Andy Pettitte and the Yankees Wednesday at the baseball owner's quarterly meetings. Cashman said that Andy Pettitte told him this when it came down to starting the 2011 season as a member of the New York starting five...
"Don't count on me."
Short but simple. Cashman went on...
"I don't think he's determined if he's officially finished or not, but he's chosen at this stage at least not to start in 2011, If that ever changes he'll call us. We're not going to hound him or bother him. Andy's been very communicative on these issues and right now he's not in play, and if he does decide to play he'll play for us. He's a Yankee from start to finish."
Brian, maybe he IS finished. Or maybe he'll go the Rodger Clemens half season routine. That doesn't leave you with much of a starting rotation, Brian and the Steinbrenner boys. Boston's is better and power-wise, I'd take my chances with Boston's 1-9 lineup. Right now, the feeling is sweet, sweetness filled with hope, for Red Sox Nation. But the players must perform and the injuries MUST STAY AWAY. If so, the Boston Red Sox have a hell of a chance in 2011.
One last note about the Tuesday night/Wednesday afternoon snowstorm here in the northeast. In all, we had 25 inches in 24 hours (actually 15!!) and that made the storm the strongest snow-dumper since they started keeping records in the late 1800's. It poured snow, as advertised. It did what a properly placed Nor'easter should do with the correct weather conditions in place. FINALLY. The state of Connecticut was virtually closed and there are plenty of delays this morning for schools and places of work. Take it easy out there, click on this post's title for way more than 100 pictures of the dumping and as always, BE WELL.
