Yanks at Angels: Rebound

Momentum is only as good as the next day's starting pitcher, right?

Andy Pettitte faces an Angels team (.282/.346/.435) that resembles the Blue Jays (.272/.339/.434) team that smacked him around for six earned in his last outing.

You know you're in trouble when you find yourself wishing that Vlad Guerrero's .290/.319/.416 were in the lineup.

Meanwhile, All-Star snub (Tim Wakefield, really?) Jered Weaver has been impressive. He's already thrown 114 innings to a 1.13 WHIP, while holding opponents to a .282 OBP. Seriously, the league hits like Francisco Cervelli against this guy.

Hopefully, Jered will remember that he's a Weaver, and revert to his career form against the Yanks- 1.46, 28IP in 5 starts, 12 BB, and 9HR, a .565 slugging.
