Really, the bottom line of this game is the bottom line of this series. Andy Pettitte was good and healthy.
And if he’s your biggest question mark, you really don’t have any questions.
Pettitte is the hinge for this postseason. The Yankees need him. He knows that, the club knows that, we all know it. There never was any doubt about his ability, his poise, his being up to the task. It was just a matter of his health, coming off the disabled list and three uncertain regular season starts.
It’s amazing, the way he was able to reach back and come up with vintage Pettitte. But that’s why there IS such a thing as vintage Pettitte.
If he was the Yankees only question, watch out.
