Andy Pettitte notched career post season win #17 last night in helping the Yankees beat Philadelphia in Game 3 of the World Series. Sure, seventeen victories is a record or something like that- but more importantly he drove in a run with a fifth inning single.

Now, the way I see it, Andy has 186 career regular season at bats. Of those 186, 147 were with the Astros. His sole career homer came as an Astro.

Basically Pettitte learned how to hit while he was an Astro. So you're welcome, New York. Don't underestimate his time spent as an Astro and how it helped the Yanks get halfway to a World Championship.
