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.
It doesn't make sense for them to keep pitching to Utley when he has been killing them and Howard looks absolutely clueless at the plate.
They definitely need a better approach this time. I think this match up favors them and they should get Pettitte out of the game early.
