Feinsand: Pettitte dealing with back issue

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Sep 30, 2010 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

ph_120485Interesting stuff from Mark Feinsand this morning.

Mark is reporting that Andy Pettitte felt some back stiffness during his previous start in New York. There doesn’t seem to be extreme concern about it, but given the state of the Yankees rotation, it obviously adds a little weight to Friday’s start in Boston.

“The next day, I knew I was going to be fine,” Pettitte told the Daily News. “But you don’t want to have anything going on, especially after what I’ve been through with my groin.”

    please be nothing.

    repeated for emphasis: “The next day, I knew I was going to be fine,” Pettitte told the Daily News

    I am going w/ Pat’s earlier explanation…his core muscles are weak from the long time spent on the DL

  4. pat September 30th, 2010 at 10:34 am

    I’m writing it off to the inactivity from the DL stint until I hear otherwise.

  5. SAS September 30th, 2010 at 10:36 am

    Blake,

    It has to be nothing, right? The only concern in my mind is the colder weather, Fingers crossed and all those good things.

  6. Roger September 30th, 2010 at 10:36 am

    Hopefully Pettite will be fine.All these injuries must effect Pettite’s decision to retire next year

  7. justinxdance27 September 30th, 2010 at 10:38 am

    probably just because he’s older and had not been through two straight starts in a while.

  8. upstate kate September 30th, 2010 at 10:38 am

    who said Andy was retiring next year?

  9. Roger September 30th, 2010 at 10:41 am

    Not saying that he will retire.But these injuries probably will effect his decision

    Evil people spreading lies!!! Lol, im holding out hope for at least one more year of Andy. Would be nice if he could retire with jorge next year.

  11. Fran the original September 30th, 2010 at 10:44 am

    I hope Andy is ok. A healthy Andy is critical to the Yankees post season chances.

  12. SAS September 30th, 2010 at 10:44 am

    Andy will know best, but I think Jeter, et. al will try their damnedest to talk him into playing one more year.

  13. SAS September 30th, 2010 at 10:46 am

    Even though the decision is Andy’s, I think Jeter, et. al., will try their damnedest to have him back.

  14. Erin September 30th, 2010 at 10:47 am

    I don’t think this is any big deal-I’m reassured by Andy saying that he knew he was going to be fine the next day. And I agree with the thought that it’s probably due to inactivity from being on the DL so long.

    Sorry got a duplicate post sign, and I didn’t think the blog accepted my original wording.

  17. Niblick September 30th, 2010 at 10:53 am

    We may see each of the “core four” retiring after next year. All we need is Mr. Torre to come back for a curtain call World Series Championship. Then they can all ride out into the sunset together.

  18. blake September 30th, 2010 at 10:57 am

    SAS,
    Yea hopefully…maybe just some stiffness from not working much in so long. They really need him.

  19. I Like Inge September 30th, 2010 at 10:58 am

    This is not a concern. Andy is a gamer. He’ll pitch regardless of how he feels. Why worry about a guy this mentally and physically tough.

  20. West Coast Yankee Fan September 30th, 2010 at 11:03 am

    Because anything having to do with the back is potentially serious, muscular or not.

  21. Crawdaddy September 30th, 2010 at 11:06 am

    “Because anything having to do with the back is potentially serious, muscular or not.”

    I don’t agree if it’s muscular.

  22. Don Vito A. Bellamo September 30th, 2010 at 11:09 am

    Tampa is going to lose tonight. It is going to be 3 games for the AL East Crown and HFA for all AL Playoffs. They Yankees and/or Rays momentum going into the postseason WILL make a difference, I don’t care what ANYONE says !

  23. West Coast Yankee Fan September 30th, 2010 at 11:11 am

    Well, I’ve heard countless coaches, players and managers say that, I guess they were wrong. Backs are funny things, especially for major league pitchers. I hope it’s nothing.

  24. tyanksfan36 September 30th, 2010 at 11:12 am

    I have a cool story to share, it doesn’t have anything to do with andy though
    I work at a preschool but I only work on fridays so I go in on thursdays to get the key and info for the next day. I visited the one year old class and was sitting on the floor getting hugs from all the kids when this one boy came up to me and touched the NY logo on my shirt(I wear yankees shirts about 24/7) and then he put out his fist to do a fist pump. Interesting thing about this story? The little boy is Wade Boggs grandson.

  25. upstate kate September 30th, 2010 at 11:15 am

    that is way cool tyanksfan :)

  26. Jerkface September 30th, 2010 at 11:15 am

    Or about the reams of data which says otherwise apparently

  27. West Coast Yankee Fan September 30th, 2010 at 11:17 am

    tyanksfan nice! Did you ask him who starts game 2?

    **************

    Does he eat chicken everyday before recess time?

  29. tyanksfan36 September 30th, 2010 at 11:27 am

    West coast

    He didn’t say cause he doesn’t talk but I think he would ask his grandfather who pitched game 2 of the alds in 1996 and his answer would be andy pettitte

  30. West Coast Yankee Fan September 30th, 2010 at 11:28 am

    Did he attend another preschool before this one? An old one with faded green paint?

  31. tyanksfan36 September 30th, 2010 at 11:31 am

    No, this is his first one

  32. pat September 30th, 2010 at 11:40 am

    Wade Boggs has a grandchild. :sad:

    Peoples kids and grandkids make me realize just how old I am sometimes.

  33. Cashman needs to go September 30th, 2010 at 11:52 am

    Question for you all out there – (the ones that are old enough anyway)

    who has the better signing voice? Steve Perry of Journey or Michael Mcdonald of the Doobie Brothers?

  34. Don September 30th, 2010 at 11:53 am

    Our rotation is a bit wobbly, I hope it works out.

  35. tyanksfan36 September 30th, 2010 at 11:59 am

    Steve Perry, but that could just be cause I like journey

  36. The Mad Prince in Pinstripes September 30th, 2010 at 12:00 pm

    Playoff rotation (call me crazy):

    CC
    Hughes
    Pettitte
    AJ

    *************************
    Hmmm….good question. I’d say Michael McDonald.

  38. Yankee Trader September 30th, 2010 at 12:05 pm

    Crazy-

    If that’s the rotation opening up in Minnesota than based on the Twins pitching rotation this weekend we will face, in order:
    Liriano
    Pavano
    Duensing
    Blackburn
