Win-save combination for Pettitte and Rivera, now 67 regular season, 77 total.
Today's 4-3 win for the Yankees at the stadium (6/11) was the 67th regular season win-save tandem for Pettitte and Rivera. May 26, 2010 was their 66th regular season win-save combination. 4/19/10 NY Post article notes 65th reg. season combo on 4/18/10.
- The two also have 10 post season win-save combos.
- The YES Network's studio guy mentioned today's 67th win-save combo for Pettitte and Rivera but failed to mention the pair's hard fought and earned 10 post season win-saves. If you write to the YES Network about this tossing in the dustbin of an important part of a long career, misleading viewers, they will tell you it's the customary way of doing things. Which is why I consider the YES Network a kindred spirit of ESPN and MLB and rarely watch any of them. As I've said elsewhere, I like SNY's presentation (the Mets channel).
