A couple losses ago, Johnny Damon described the Yankees’ situation as "critical." Does that mean the situation is now more cricitcaler? It’s Pettitte vs. Saunders today in Anaheim. Andy has been roughed up his last two outings, while Saunders hasn’t lost since July 8th. The young lefty is blossoming into one of the finer pitchers in the game in his first full season as a starter; if people didn’t know his name before, they will after this year. The Yankees have faced him twice previously (both after his first call-up in 2006) but this will be their first look at him this year.
