A good way to start

Two weeks into the season, the Yankees have nine wins. And that’s with their No. 3 hitter batting .114.

Derek Jeter, Robinson Cano, Jorge Posada and Curtis Granderson have been terrific, but the team’s hot start has started with its starters.* Obviously Javier Vazquez is struggling, but CC Sabathia, A.J. Burnett, Andy Pettitte and Phil Hughes are 7-0 through 10 starts. Sabathia, Burnett and Pettitte have sub-3.00 ERAs.

“I came back because I want to help us win another championship,” Pettitte said. “And I feel like we have a special group of guys here.”

Obviously Pettitte was outstanding yesterday, but check out this pitching line for the Yankees starters this home stand: 5-1, 2.17 ERA, 37.2 IP, 27 H , 15 BB, 36 K and a .205 opponents batting average.

* What a terrible sentence, but I couldn’t help myself.

And that’s obviously an AP photo of Pettitte with Dave Eiland and Joe Girardi.
