YUSMEIRO PETIT RUMORS

From Mexico to the World Series, Petit shines

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Yusmeiro Petit was running out of choices. His major league career had hit rock bottom and was heading nowhere.

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.
