Pettitte needs to be huge

In 2003, Andy Pettitte started Game 2 of every series (ALDS, ALCS and World Series) with the Yankees trailing 1-0. Pettitte proceeded to win every game.

He then left as a free agent.

Since then, the Yankees only got out of the division series once.

A stopper like Pettitte is something the Yankees have missed over the last three years. He is now back and the Yankees and Joe Torre need him more than ever.

Another interesting stat is that the Yankees are 5-0 when they lose the first game of a Division Series. They are 2-5 when they win the first game of a Division Series. So there is still hope.

However, this is a must-win for the Yankees. I don't have much faith in Roger Clemens coming off of an injury to start Game 3 with the Yankees down 2-0.

Let's go Yankees. Let's go Andy Pettitte. This is where you shine for the most part.

Well, Pettitte has done well today. I gotta hand it to him, he knows how to pitch in the postseason. Now, the Yankees just need to get some people to start hitting...
