ESPN: No Burnett in ALDS (Updated)

(UPDATE 12:52 PM) It's official: Game 1 - CC, Game 2 - Hughes, Game 3 - Pettitte

From Andrew Marchand and Wallace Matthews:
Girardi plans to use CC Sabathia for Game 1 against the Minnesota Twins and on short rest in Game 4. Andy Pettitte will be scheduled for Game 2 and would on regular rest because of the off days prior to Game 5.

Phil Hughes will start Game 3 when the series moves from Minnesota to The Bronx.


Girardi's news conference is scheduled for Tuesday afternoon in Minnesota.

My only concern is Hughes and the 20 HR he's allowed in the Bronx this year, but you have to set things up so that Pettitte is your game 5 starter and this does just that.
