      News coming in that Andy Pettite one of the best Yankee pitchers of all time is retiring this week.

      Great Yankee. Fantastic Playoff record.

      Good luck Andy and thanks for the memories and rings.

      Saw that earlier, sad but i knew it was coming. My favorite player without a doubt, and im glad that the one game i have been to so far in my life was one in which he started. Had a sh*t game though :D But still, such a brilliant pitcher at his best, and one of the real stalwarts of the great Yankee sides of the last decade and a bit. Will be missed, very much.

      Wouldn't be surprised to see him back in July or August.

      I remember Andy starting on Opening Day in 1996 and it snowed the entire game. Kinda funny watching baseball in the snow.

      The Yankees gave every fan that had a ticket for that game a free ticket to another game. I ended up seeing Doc Gooden's no-hitter with a free ticket a couple months later. Not a bad deal.

      Andy was always one of my favorites , great career.
