16 year veteran Andy Pettitte has come out of retirement to sign a 1 year deal worth 2.5 million dollars. Pettitte has won 240 games over his career, and his life time winning percentage is 635. He is well known for his dominance in the post season, where he has risen to occasion and won 21 games. I believe this move is beneficial for players such as Michael Pineda, and Ivan Nova and in September he could help young south paw Manny Buenalos. Pettitte was a member of the core four including Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, and Jorge Posada. As a Yankees fan I love the move and hope for the best.
Trout, Harper, Moore, Montero, Miller, Buenalos, Bauer, Teheran, and Mesoraco its names like these that get all sorts of baseball fans excited for the 2012 season Moore, Montero, Mesoraco, Teheran, and Trout made it to the big’s in 2011 while Miller Bauer and Buenalos still await the phone call. These players are expected to shake up the 2012 season. Trout will be joining a much improved Angles line up while Harper and Montero will most likely play key rolls in their teams line ups that still need some help. As for Matt Moore the number one overall prospect he will be joining in my opinion the best pitching rotation in all baseball with the Tampa bay Rays. Miller may not be ready for 2012 season but the Cardinals patience should pay off he is 21 with a plus fast ball and devastating curve he should be a September call up and will join Chris Carpenter, Adam Wainwright, Jaime Garcia and Kyle Lohse in one of baseballs stronger pitching rotations. Bauer was the number 3 draft pick in 2011 and has shot up through the Diamondbacks system. Mesoraco and Buenalos are likely to play key roles in the years to as well all Buenalos needs to learn is more control of his fast ball and he will be ready for the Bronx in no time.
