Pettitte: It’s a great day

Posted by: Sam Borden - Posted in Misc on Sep 01, 2010 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Andy Pettitte came through his bullpen session this afternoon without any major issues and said he it was “a great day” for him as he recovers from a groin injury.

“I’m going to come in tomorrow and see how it feels,” Pettitte said. “I was a little tender after my last time and obviously I did more this time. I hope I just have a little bit of soreness. I imagine I will.”

Pettitte had initially suggested that he could be back about a week-and-a-half from now and he said he’s not sure how today’s bullpen would affect that estimate. Pettitte threw 30 pitches, sat down for about five or six minutes, then threw “a good hard simulated inning,” he said.

Although Pettitte’s schedule is still to be determined, he expects to face hitters in a simulated game before making at least one minor league rehab start. “It’s just a matter of where,” he said.

The best part of today for Pettitte was that he was able to focus on the location of his pitches, instead of feeling for any pain every time he threw the ball. “I’m a long way from the command that I need,” he said, “but this is a good start.”

    Very good news. :)

    And the glass-half-emptiers get burned again.

    Great news……………………once Andy returns, things will seem better with the rotation (not great, but better).

  4. Robin September 1st, 2010 at 6:15 pm

    Interesting: according the Daily News, the Yankees are still pursuing a trade for Ted Lilly.

    YankeesWFAN ARod progressing in his rehab. Took BP on the field today, still targeting Sunday return from DL.

    A-Rod is close too. Man this team could be scary late September/October.

  8. Joe from Long Island September 1st, 2010 at 6:22 pm

    GB – Think the Dodgers are mailing it in? If so, that would be a da**ing indictment of St. Joe. Not saying it’s so, but something’s not right out there, front the FO on down.

    How many “Get Off Of My Mound” signs will be flashed tomorrow night at the Stadium?

  10. Asd September 1st, 2010 at 6:24 pm

    Oooohhh… A close finish, but Erin wins it by a hair.

    “Interesting: according the Daily News, the Yankees are still pursuing a trade for Ted Lilly”

    If that turns out to be true, they could do worse.

  12. GreenBeret7 September 1st, 2010 at 6:27 pm

    Joe, I do. I think the players quit on themselves and Ramirez was the ring leader. I also believe that Torre gave up on them right after that. It was a no-win for a manager going against a $20 mil a year player. I can only guess what a Billy Martin/Lou Piniella type would do to Ramirez.

    I’m disappointed I don’t get to watch the game tomorrow. Stupid day games while I’m stuck at work. :x

    Although it probably won’t be quite as entertaining with Alex still out of the lineup.

    Erin, send your email to Chad and have him forward it. I can give you my MLB-TV.com email and password.

    The Dodgers pulled Lilly off waivers and aren’t interested in trading him.

    His agent and the Dodgers are talking contract after Lilly informed the Dodgers he’s interested in staying in LA beyond this year.

    Good work today Chad. Plenty of info for us Yankee Junkies.

    Awww…thanks GB. But unfortunately,my office will block it out anyway. I don’t know why, but they frown on us watching TV over the internet while at work. lol

    Thanks so much for the offer though!

  19. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 1st, 2010 at 6:35 pm

    Good. I’ll pick him back up for my fantasy team. He lost a beat when he was put on waivers and we briefly parted ways but I trust him to get it right back. His pitching has been stellar.

    It’s actually Sam doing the game tonight.

  21. Betsy September 1st, 2010 at 6:36 pm

    Dodgers wouldn’t have let him go to the Yankees anyway…….and having Lilly would just complicate matters with Andy back. Woud we really start Lilly in the playoffs over AJ, Javy or Phil?

  22. champ809 September 1st, 2010 at 6:37 pm

    Kershaw-Billingsly-Kuroda-Lilly would be a nice staff to run out there next season….

    Just need an ace/horse experienced #1 type to slot ahead of Kershaw to take some pressure off him to lead them. He’s still kind of young although he’s an absolute stud.

  23. GreenBeret7 September 1st, 2010 at 6:37 pm

    Erin, how can you possibly work for such a narrow minded bunch of people? Haven’t they ever heard of the saying, “A happy Lohudder is a productive Lohudder”? Anyway, the offer stands. You could watch it from the archives later after work.

  24. jackamir September 1st, 2010 at 6:38 pm

    Dodgers looked dead-in-the-water today. I wouldn’t be surprised if they called Cashman back. I think Cashman’s phone went straight to voicemail.

  25. jackamir September 1st, 2010 at 6:40 pm

    Thanks Erin, My apologies Sam. Good stuff today.

  26. champ809 September 1st, 2010 at 6:41 pm

    Jim

    Btw the last time Javy was pulled from the ‘ro and then re-inserted he was our best most consistent starter for the next month and a half.

    I’m sure that Joe would love for him to repeat that.

    I’d throw C.C and AJ at home and Pett and Phil on the road.

    AJ may get on track with the home crowd behind him in a playoff game and pitch up to the moment like he did last year at the stadium in the playoff.

    CC hasn’t lost at home in like forever.

    We all know Hughes splits make him a must on the road.

    And Andy could do it anywhere in Oct.

  27. Robin September 1st, 2010 at 6:43 pm

    All the points on Lilly are valid. Still, Cashman put in a claim, and as of today, isn’t taking “no” for an answer.

    I should tell my boss that when I get in tomorrow morning!

    Thanks again-I’ll probably just end up recording it so I have it on my DVR.

    Nick in SF, Pat M.

    My date to go to ‘N and Out Burger is on. My husband loves it.

    Chad, Sam,

    Heard a bit of your news ‘conference’ today….Good stuff, thanks.

  30. GreenBeret7 September 1st, 2010 at 6:50 pm

    any time, Erin. Just play to your boss’s historical and patriotic nature. Those are the words of Benjamin Franklin as he told them directly to Randy I.

  31. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 1st, 2010 at 6:51 pm

    Interesting that Torre has a pretty good stable of players but they seem to have packed it in. Hmmm. Is it the manager? Did he lose the faith of his players when they saw him throw Yankee players under a bus and so perhaps things aren’t as loose in the clubhouse as they could be with the team (who could blame them), players watching their backs etc. and having the tension translate on the field? Or is he just overrated, period?

    Perhaps a little of both?

  32. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 1st, 2010 at 6:55 pm

    I vote a little of both. Those were really just provocative questions. I wasn’t really looking for guidance. I already voted in that election.

    But free to add your own opinion if you so choose.

    :)

    Karma am und blitch, Joe. Hope you have many happy hours reading your book.

  33. Robin September 1st, 2010 at 6:55 pm

    “Rumors” have Torre managing either the Mets or the Cubs next year.

    Even though he’s 70, I think he still wants to manage.

  34. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 1st, 2010 at 6:59 pm

    Robin, I absolutely believe he does. I’m sure he’d rather not go out the way his season is going to end this year. And I would think he would definitely have some offers.

    Awesome blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or
    go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely
    overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Kudos!
