Andy Pettitte dashed out of the Yankees’ dugout to a standing ovation, then pitched a scoreless sixth inning on Wednesday, appearing in his first game since the 2010 American League Championship Series. The 39-year-old left-hander turned in a solid 13-pitch outing in the Yankees’ Grapefruit League finale, an 8-3 win over the Mets at George M. Steinbrenner Field, permitting a single and facing the minimum three batters.
Andy Pettitte coming out of retirement has added an unexpected wrinkle to a club that had boosted its rotation by acquiring Hiroki Kuroda and Michael Pineda.

The 2012 New York Yankees are one of the better teams in Major League Baseball, but we say that every year….. and every year we also say that they aren’t built for a postseason run. It’s no different this year. The Yankees will make the playoffs, but the will...

Opening Day is a time for celebration, a time for joy and good feelings. It is also a time to evaluate the state of your team (and possibly overreact to an Opening Day loss). But hey, that’s the fun of it. Let’s take a look at the entire 2012 Yankees roster and answer the hard-hitting questions everyone wants to know:
1: Will Teixeira hit .281 this season?
Money, money, and more money: the typical offseason that New York Yankee fans are accustomed to. The Yankees shop for high profile free agents like the Kardashian sisters shop for men. From CC Sabathia to Carl Pavano to Russell Martin, Yankee free agent signings are boom or bust. They produce World Series MVPs or major disappointments. If the Bronx Bombers can’t beat you in...
