YUSMEIRO PETIT RUMORS

MLB Game Picks - Sunday: October 26, 2014

I was wrong again and I was right again. I was wrong because I did not factor in Yusmeiro Petit and his ability to rescue San Francisco's starter. I was right because I knew the starting pitchers in this game would not pitch well.  They did not. I was wrong because the Royals over-relied on a kid who was pitching for a college team just two months ago and gave him such a large...

Petit's clutch relief carries Giants bullpen again

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Yusmeiro Petit bounced off the mound pumping his fists and shouting ''Let's go!'' The right-hander from Venezuela certainly has found his swagger this October as a lights-out long man who delivers in the clutch game after game, inning after inning. He did it again Saturday night for the San Francisco Giants, pitching three scoreless innings of relief against the...

DraftKings – Yous May Roll With Petit

Do other parts of the country say 'yous'? Maybe it's because I have South Jersey roots but I say it a lot. I also say "jawn" more than I probably should and I end up sounding like a crazy person out here in rural Ohio. Yous see that jawn? Yous see Yusmeiro Petit's jawn ($7,100) on that DraftKings jawn? No, Mike, we have no idea what the hell you are talking about. Well, let me explain...

San Francisco Giants Yusmeiro Petit sets amazing record

Baseball is a statistical sport, for which “streaks” are widely monitored and acclaimed.  From Joe DiMaggio‘s 56 game hitting streak, to Cal Ripken‘s 2632 games played to Orel Hershiser‘s 59 consecutive scoreless innings to Johnny Vander Meers consecutive no-hitters.  The San Francisco Giants pitcher Yusmeiro Petit can etch his name among those baseball legends now by...

Giants’ Yusmeiro Petit Breaks MLB Record In Win Over Rockies (Video)

Thursday afternoon’s game between the San Francisco Giants and Colorado Rockies featured a dominant pitcher etching his name into the MLB record books. That pitcher was none other than… Yusmeiro Petit? If you have no idea who that is, we forgive you.

White Sox Record Broken: Giants Pitcher Yusmeiro Petit Sets All-Time High

Giants' Yusmeiro Petit retires 46 straight batters for MLB record

  San Francisco Giants right-hander Yusmeiro Petit has set a major league record by retiring 46 consecutive batters. Petit set down the first eight Colorado hitters he faced Thursday, setting the record by striking out Charlie Culberson and drawing a standing ovation at AT&T Park. That broke the mark held by Mark Buehrle with 45 in a row for the Chicago White Sox in 2009. The...

A Good Reason To Watch Yusmeiro Petit Pitch

The Giants can take no more. Well into Tim Lincecum‘s third straight year of mediocrity — since the start of 2012, he’s got a 134 ERA- and 114 FIP- – and most of the way through the first year of his 2/$35m extension signed last winter, San Francisco will skip him in the rotation and instead […]
