Pettitte arrives, throws in pen

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on Feb 18, 2008 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Andy Pettitee touched down in Tampa around 11:30 a.m. He was over at the minor-league complex a short time later and threw a 35-pitch bullpen session with pitching coach Dave Eiland watching.

The pitchers who threw over at Legends Field were at 40 pitches today, so Pettitte is only a tick behind.

    Good to hear!

  2. Elizabeth February 18th, 2008 at 1:58 pm

    That’s a bit of a relief. Post said he looked like he was in shape, too, so that’s also good to hear.

    “That’s a bit of a relief. ”

    Did people really think he wouldn’t be in shape and good to go?

  4. murphydog February 18th, 2008 at 2:07 pm

    Let’s see how he pitches around 3 pm.

    We love ya, Andy!

    Andy’s a professional and a veteran.. he knows how to turn it on when he needs to. I have no worries with Pettitte. 15 wins.

  8. mel February 18th, 2008 at 2:13 pm

    Thanks, Pete. Nice to know that Andy hasn’t completely fallen apart.

    Hate to disappoint the media, but that bullpen session is far more important and far more relevant than their b.s. session that will follow.

    Andy Pettitte’s news conference isn’t going to be televised is it?

  11. Chuck February 18th, 2008 at 2:26 pm

    News conference will definitely be live on at least — my guess is ESPN News (and possibly ESPN itself) will also cover it live — maybe YES too…

    After the admission that he tried HGH after 2002, people will have a hard time believing what he says.

    I would love to hear him say “I will not have a problem focusing on the mound because now, my heart and head are clear. I have told everything there is to tell. It’s all out in the open and I am, for the first time in a few years, pitching with an entirely clean conscience.”

    The look on his face today should be one of relief – the one of someone getting everything off his chest.

    I look forward to hearing what he has to say.

    I don’t know if it’s getting televised. YES currently has the Bucky Dent home run game showing. They just ended the top of the 7th with Goose throwing gas. It’s probably timed to end at 3pm EST. I wonder if they will carry it?

  13. Brian (Red Sox fan) February 18th, 2008 at 2:29 pm

    As a Sox fan, I’d love Pettitte to fall apart this season, but I doubt it. He has always been a pitcher who competes superbly against Boston.

    Also, he’s been carrying this PED thing around for several years now. Only he knows the extent of his use (for now), but it’s clear that he’s been in constant fear of being outed for some time now. And he has produced on the field, regardless.

    From Pettitte’s viewpoint, he must be extremely upset that Clemens decided to go on a full attack mode. Pettitte quickly acknowledged the veracity of the Mitchell Report, and had reason to believe that he could “get out of Dodge” with a quick “mea culpa.”

    But Clemens just had to impugn a government witness and a government investigation. Pettitte knew that Clemens was an abuser, and yet had to watch as Clemens uncorked the whole can of worms. By the time Clemens was finished, Clemens had taken down Pettitte, Knoblauch, his own wife, his mother, his lawyers, his agents, his nanny, and anyone else who had a different version of the “truth.”

    So Pettitte was collateral damage in The Roger Clemens Nuclear War. If I were Pettitte, I’d be furious.

  14. Chuck February 18th, 2008 at 2:29 pm

    Just checked — ESPN News “pregame show” will start at 2:30 pm. OTL on ESPN will be covering live at 3PM with coverage of Pettitte.

  15. EY February 18th, 2008 at 2:30 pm

    I don’t care what he says or whether he did use it or not. What’s important is he’s not using it now – focus on the present and the future, not the past.

    15 wins.

  16. vrsce February 18th, 2008 at 2:30 pm

    There is no reason for Andy to feel ashamed. the witch hunt mentality that has captured the media and much of this blog is laughable.
    Petite took HGH on a very limited basis. He did not change his body or enhance his performance.

    If you seekers of truth and justice (including Congress)need a holy crusade, try pursuing the investment bankers on Wall Street who have plundered hundreds of billions from innocent people and jeopardized the world’s economy.

  17. jennifer-Phil Hughes saved!! February 18th, 2008 at 2:40 pm

    Espn is covering this like a blanket! It is sickening.

  18. Patrick February 18th, 2008 at 2:44 pm

    I think some people are losing touch with reality when it comes to Pettitte and PED’s. Put yourself in Andy’s shoes back when he took the HGH. First, HGH was not specifically banned by baseball and it was not illegal to take. (Yes Pete we know all drugs not perscribed are illegal to take) Second, Andy didn’t take this stuff to become a better pitcher, he took it both times to help him get back from an injury. Was Pettitte really doing this maliciously or just trying anything to get healthy faster? Not to mention HGH does nothing if you are above the age of 20 but thats besides the point.

    Obviously what he did is wrong but in my opinion the degree of wrongness(if thats a word) is being blown WAY out of proportion.

  19. Scott February 18th, 2008 at 2:45 pm

    YES will cover it live as well. I just saw it scroll by on the ticker. Goose just got through the 8th after letting up a bunch of base hits and a couple runs. Yanks up 5-4. Good game! I wonder how it ends ;-)

    Perhaps you’ve been working a while for some firm. Hopefully you’ve got what was due you and started climbing the ladder. But you’re not content with the work you have before you. Perhaps things have not gone as well as you hoped in your job and everything has been put on hold. It is quite understandable that companies are doing a lot of downsizing. While starting a business you must not be dissuaded by current economic trends and stock market volatility. Timing your business venture with a severance package is certainly ideal. If your desire to make a change is stronger than any expected lay off don’t wait too long.

    La sous-culture moto de motard a existé depuis le début des années 1940 et 50. Tout a commencé lorsque "les anciens combattants de la Seconde Guerre mondiale sont rentrés chez eux par la guerre avec l’Allemagne et le Japon, et beaucoup d’entre eux ont pris la moto, en partie, parce qu’il a fourni l’excitation pour les jeunes hommes qui avaient tout risqué dans la guerre." (Thompson) frais de l’étranger et en toute indépendance et de l’argent à dépenser, ce sont les jeunes hommes qui ne veulent pas s’installer dans la durée de vie prévue de l’achat d’une maison, se marier, avoir des enfants et. (Hunter S. Thompson) La sous-culture des motards a vu le jour afin de fournir un moyen pour ses membres à résister à la hiérarchie sociale qui est inhérent à la structure de classe américaine. (Horowitz et Liebowitz) Au lieu de se conformer aux normes de la société qu’ils retournaient à ces hommes ont créé une sous-culture dans laquelle ils pourraient élaborer leurs propres normes en matière d’hygiène, les tatouages, et le comportement criminel fréquentes. Selon Tom Wheeler, associations, groupes et clubs formés de manière que les anciens combattants puissent trouver un sens de la fraternité dans les autres conducteurs. Comme l’une des statistiques les plus reconnues jamais présentées, l’American Motorcycle Association, en 1947 l’article de Dourghty "Havoc dans Hollister", a affirmé que quatre vingt dix neuf pour cent des propriétaires de moto étaient citoyens respectueux des lois. Cela a donné naissance à un groupe de propriétaires qui s’appelaient eux-mêmes les un pour-cent. Ce groupe contient ces organisations remarquables comme les Hells Angels, The Outlaws, les Banditos et d’autres affiliations reconnus au niveau national. Ces groupes ont la fierté dans le fait qu’ils ont fait jusqu’à 1% de la population conduite d’une motocyclette qui a participé à diverses formes de comportement criminel, et fait un point se laisser connus en tant que tels par le port d’un patch avec le symbole 1% cousue en elle. (Hunter S. Thompson)

    I’m impressed, I should say. Definitely rarely do I encounter a weblog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you might have hit the nail on the head. Your notion is outstanding; the concern is something that not sufficient people are speaking intelligently about. I’m rather happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.

    An fascinating discussion is worth comment. I think that you must write alot more on this topic, it could possibly not be a taboo subject but commonly consumers aren’t enough to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers

    Nice post. I understand something additional challenging on unique blogs everyday. It is going to continually be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their store. I’d prefer to make use of some using the content on my weblog no matter if you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a link on your web weblog. Thanks for sharing.
