Yes. I would think Pettitte is at a small disadvantage, not knowing Eastern League hitters. Most of his game at this stage is hitting his spots. Minor league hitters probably not dazzled by his 86-mph cutter.
Pettitte is getting dinged a bit in AA tonight, 2 ERs and counting so far in the 4th inning. This is his first start outside of Florida this year, right?

Knowledge. He game plans hitters. You don't see a lot of that in the minors, even from the guys who are there forever. Minor league pitchers generally are more concerned with executing their pitches. If a guy gets hot, like Middlebrooks and Gomez are right now for Pawtucket, then a book starts to develop on what pitches they are hitting, but it's unusual, even in AAA ball.
If minor league hitters are not dazzled by his 86-mph cutter, then what is his plan against major league hitters?

They're probably talking to Aaron Cook's agent behind Boston's back right now.
You guys better pray Pettitte pitches like it's 1996.

Does BR have a way I can search for most hits in a calendar month in Jeter's career?
50 in 98. Go to career splits and open each month (for each years monthl totals)
