Because “CC Sabathia and four days of rain” is too much to expect, it’s kind of important that Andy Pettitte get back to the Bronx as soon as possible. An important step in that journey happens this evening, as Pettitte is scheduled to make a rehab start for the Trenton Thunder in the AA playoffs.
Hardly seems fair that a guy with Pettitte’s pedigree is going to impact minor league playoffs, but that’s just how it goes. My guess is that most of the Trenton Thunder fans don’t mind, however.
