THE final game at Yankee Stadium. Ever. Period. Tonight, at 8:05, on ESPN.
|2008 - Chris Waters||3-3||9||9||1||1||0||0||53.0||55||30||28||6||23||25||4.75||1.47|
|2008 - Andy Pettitte||13-14||32||32||0||0||0||0||199.0||226||109||101||19||54||155||4.57||1.41|
I suppose it's rather fitting that a tired, aging, worn-out Andy Pettitte will close the show at Yankee Stadium. Like the team he represents, he was once a reliable October staple, a big-game pitcher that made his presence felt in crunch time. The Yankees are out of gas. Pettitte appears to be, though he keeps going out there and doing what he can.
While Joe Torre's Dodgers head to the playoffs, Joe Girardi's Yankees limp home.
Enjoy the game -- seriously. It IS Yankee Stadium, love it or hate it.
