wang_576

Coming off of starter David Phelps’ implosion (.1 IP), the Yankees will be looking for more success from the return of a veteran, in Andy Pettitte, on Monday against the Indians.

In fact, Phelps is not the only moving part the Yankees have had in their rotation this year.  Ivan Nova, Vidal Nuno, and the eventually debuting Michael Pineda will all start for the Yankees this year.

A show that was so influential, hitting on every cylinder was everything an American landscape could be presented as – from a workplace, to our comedic tendencies, to our relationships – was lazy, uninspired, and unplanned for much of the last few years.

This might sound like a negative view, but we can only feel that way because of what we will remember: The most influential American comedy of the first decade of the 2000’s. Continue reading
