Andy Pettitte vs. Bryce Harper

This game wasn’t really a ‘contest’ between Andy and Bryce, but the fact is that Andy is twice as old as Bryce Harper. And Bryce Harper is the young phenomena and Andy Pettitte is the ‘old guy’ making a come back. Someone even mentioned, Andy’s kids probably tweet with Bryce Harper. He is only a couple of years older then Andy’s oldest son.

Of course the beat writers, couldn’t let this go, one of them kept up a theme during the game.

Could you see this? Alright son if you hit this baseball you’re grounded and I’m taking away your allowance!

Two times facing Pettitte, two strike outs. Is 40 the new 20?

Now this implies that they are in the same grade, or that Pettitte is a bully, or maybe Harper is the brash young kid being set down and taught a lesson by a seasoned veteran.

Andy can drive you anywhere you need to go.

Actually he just showered and left, declining to talk to reporters. Knowing what stupid questions some of them ask, I don’t really blame them. Joe gets tired of the clown questions, and Bryce is a rookie with a lot less patience than Joe.

And one more thing, the Yankees didn’t hit any home runs this game, and it took them 14 innings to win it. I prefer games with home runs.
