All that being said, Pettite made Utley, Howard, and Ibanez look stupid the other night for the most part...they need to adjust and get some hits off of him.
This is what about I'm most concerned. The adjustments the hitters have to make for Pettitte won't be as easy as the ones they made with Burnett.
