Catching on a daily basis isn't easy. Not even if you're an exuberant 24-year-old named Francisco Cervelli. Cervelli's zeal for the game of baseball helped propel him to a scorching start to 2010—the backup-turned-starter held a .400 batting average through 20 games played on May 17—but he's not an energizer bunny.

Andy Pettitte Posts Another Strong Start: Could He Win »

Andy Pettitte has indeed been dandy for the Yankees this season and continues to defy father time. The same 24-year-old kid who went 21-8 and finished second in Cy Young voting in 1996 is still dominating here in 2010. The only difference is that he is now 38 years old, in his 16th season, and on the brink of retirement. Andy has gone 7-1 [...]
