Championship Series Starting Rotation

September 12, 2010

The Trentonian’s Josh Norris attended the team’s rain-soaked workout this morning — I have the weekend off — and reports that the starting rotation will vary based on what happens with Andy Pettitte.

Scenario 1

Game 1: Andy Pettitte (backed up by Andrew Brackman if Pettitte leaves before 5 full innings)
Game 2: Dellin Betances
Game 3: Adam Warren
Game 4: Manny Banuelos
Game 5: Cory Arbiso

Scenario 2

Game 1: Andy Pettitte
Game 2: Andrew Brackman
Game 3: Dellin Betances
game 4: Adam Warren
Game 5: Manny Banuelos

I think regardless of what Pettitte does that you go with the second scenario…Arbiso makes a great long man.

Pettitte, Thunder To Face Altoona In Finals

September 12, 2010

The Altoona Curve defeated the Harrisburg Senators in the Western Division Series to advance to the Eastern League Championship Series, where they will face the Trenton Thunder.

Altoona will host the first two games of the series on Tuesday and Wednesday before the series shifts back to Waterfront Park on Thursday.  Reports out of New York have Andy Pettitte starting Game 1 for the Thunder.

I will be in Altoona for both games.  Stay tuned for more info…
