Pettitte and Vazquez are Heating Up

With Johnson and Wright injured and Pavano, Mussina, and Brown inconsistent, I'm sure Junkee fans will be delighted to know that ex-Yanks Andy Pettitte and Javy Vazquez are starting to do real well. Pettitte pitched great last night, allowing 2 runs in 7+ innings and hasn't allowed more than 3 runs in any of his starts so far.

And after three horrific starts to open the year, Vazquez is starting to revert to old (pre-Junkees) form. Two nights ago, he threw a complete game and allowed only two runs. He had 9 Ks (to go with 2 ER in 8 IP) in his start before that, and threw 7 shutout innings in the start before that one.

Not to mention yet another quality outing by Jon Leiber last night against the Shmets (6 innings, 1 ER).

Well done, Cashman!
