"Adios, Andy"
I know there's no Yankee love to be found here, but I have to post a fond farewell (or a see-ya-later) to one of my all-time favorite Yankees.


The 38-year-old Pettitte announced his retirement at a televised news conference at Yankee Stadium. He helped the Yankees win five World Series championships in 13 seasons in the Bronx, and record a record 19 victories in postseason play.

</3

And yet, there is one section that gives me hope:
Pettitte said that he was confident that he wouldn’t play this season. He wouldn’t rule out a future return.
“You can never say never,” he said. “I don’t think I would be scared, if I literally went through this whole season and I had hurt in my stomach that I wanted to pitch, to maybe try it again."

I hope he misses the game enough to "maybe try it again." If not, I wish him a happy retirement.

1. "RE: Adios, Andy"
I'll always appreciate Andy Pettitte because the guy won me a fantasy baseball championship in my most competitive league. In 2005, when he was pitching for the Houston Astros, Andy got off to a slow start, and one of my fellow managers dropped him from his roster. Being the opportunist that I am, I picked Andy up and stuck him in my starting lineup. When I picked him up, after a poor start on May 18th, Andy's ERA was 4.11 and his record was 2-5, and his final stats that season ended up being a 17-9 record and a 2.39 ERA (over a whopping 222 innings pitched). That was probably the greatest fantasy free agent pickup I've ever made.

After the season, the guy who dropped Andy Pettitte did the math and calculated that Andy's performance was the difference between my team finishing first (ahead of his team) and finishing second (behind where his team would have been with Andy's stats included).

Thanks, Andy.

That would include me!!

But, I will say that I have respect for Andy and his body of work as a great pitcher, though as with many of his generation the stain of steroids is dark. I wish him a happy (and long ) retirement.

I appreciated this comment from John O'Connell.

I never rooted for his teams. But I was keenly aware of the fact that he was a fierce competitor and (by most accounts) a superb person.

Congrats on the spectacular career. You will be missed (especially this year by a suddenly rudder-less Yankee team).

I got to see him pitch in Columbus before he made the bigs.

I hope for his sake, and for all of ours, that he stays retired. It never works out seeing people come back as much as they do.
