It's nice that Pettitte will be getting one more start against minor league hitting before he has to face a major league team.

How much longer until he's ready to face Major League hitters?

I can't link Pettitte to WWI...because it keeps flipping to WWII.

The M's will beat Pettitte easily if they can just trick him into wearing a Tigers uniform.
