There was a bit of breaking news prior to last night's game involving Andy Pettitte and his rehab from his broken ankle. There were reports that he had pushed himself too hard while working out in Seattle (which I still say is completely stupid) and was going to have to back off for an undetermined amount of time. Seeing as how he was already scheduled for a return sometime in September, that undetermined amount of time could put his return at all this season into jeopardy.
Quick to quell the rumor mill before it could get started too much, Cash, via Ken Davidoff, said that Andy did NOT suffer a setback but rather experienced the "ebb and flow of rehab." I don't know about you, but that sounds like the definition of a setback to me.
So that raises the all-important question. Is what happened to Andy, whatever it was, a setback or not? Is it a setback... or isn't it? That's the question.

Think about that for a while.
