This will be Pettitte’s final game at Yankee Stadium, and Mariano’s big ceremony is today too (though I still hope he pitches later this week when IH is in attendance). Godspeed, ya old goats, the thought of facing you was daunting all the way through your careers, which is truly impressive. Well-played. Meanwhile, the Sox look to rebound from a 2-run loss to the Jays after throwing the JV lineup out there (though really, that mostly meant the loss of Pedroia until he got into the game later anyway, along with Salty and Napoli getting a blow), and get back on track for the best AL record (up 1 in the loss column over Oakland, magic # still 6).
It’s alliterative paradise as Pettitte faces Petit (hee hee!) and Dickey takes on Doubront. Happy Sunday!
