Lee vs. Pettitte.

The Rangers on the ALCS roster are a collective .308/.373/.462-hitting bunch against Andy Pettitte, which is sort of stunning.  It’s .327/.390/.497 if you include Vladimir Guerrero, Bengie Molina, and Jeff Francoeur’s work in the post-season, where Pettitte has generally made his career mark.  

Then again, the Yankees’ collective .280/.329/.482 slash against Cliff Lee is equally hard to believe.  Not surprisingly, the slash dips a bit (to .269/.314/.456) if you include the playoffs.

David Murphy has a 1.144 OPS in 12 plate appearances against Pettitte, but he’ll likely start the game on the bench, ceding the start to the right-handed-hitting Francoeur and his team-leading 1.455 (11 plate appearances).

Lots of pinball numbers.  But still feels like we’re poised for a 2-1 game.

Enjoy this.
