Update: Starter #4

The
currently indexed third starter for New York is Andy Pettitte. On our last check through the cycle, Pettitte was actually pitching too well for this back-end role. Let’s see if things have changed:

Andy Pettitte, Weighted ERA

(ERA) (Games Played / 162) + (Projected ERA) [(162 – Games Played) / 162]
(3.97) (109 / 162) + (4.08) [(162 – 109) / 162]
(3.97) (0.67) + (4.08) (53 / 162)
2.66 + (4.08) (0.33)
2.66 + 1.35
4.01

Perfect! Pettitte is as good as a legitimate number four starter can get, but he is a number four starter. Rotation Status:

1.    [No Starter]
2.    [No Starter]
3.    Chien-Ming Wang
4.    (L) Andy Pettitte
5.    Mike Mussina
6.    Darrell Rasner (A)
