Not Feeling the Pettitte Signing

I love Andy as much as the next guy. It's been an absolute pleasure watching him come up thru the system and becoming one of the faces of the franchise. In his prime, I felt nothing but confidence when Pettitte was on the mound. That was then & this is now. This is the year 2012, he is turning 41 years old in June, and he has not pitched in the big leagues in over a...

Andy Pettitte back for another run

The Yankees and Andy Pettitte shocked the baseball world by announcing a comeback for the Deer Park native. Pettitte retired following a very solid 2010 season that saw him go 11-3 with a sub 3.50 ERA. Immediately, people speculated as to whether he would have enough on his resume to get inducted into the baseball Hall of Fame by 2016. It looks like that clock will be...

Pettitte throws in bullpen, says arm feels great

Andy Pettitte says his arm feels great after throwing his first bullpen session with the New York Yankees since ending his brief retirement. The 39-year-old lefty threw 50 pitches to catcher Russell Martin, and even joked that he may be ready to pitch in the big leagues in three weeks. Pettitte says his target date is May 1. Pettitte arrived in camp Tuesday, took physicals and...

Yankees' Decision to Bring Back Andy Pettitte Could Open Doors for Even More Surprising Returns

The Yankees dropped a Bronx bombshell last week when they announced that they had talked Andy Pettitte out of retirement, signing the veteran left-hander to a minor-league deal. The 39-year-old is hoping to make his return to the Yankee Stadium mound by May, and if he's successful in his return, what's to stop the Yankees from continuing their efforts to further turn back the clock?

It's tough to know just when to go: nice Newsday article on Andy Pettitte's return

As y'all are aware, Andy Pettitte is officially un-retiring today from the New York Yankees. I wrote about this just the other day, but I had to write again because there was a really thoughtful, well-written article in Newsday today by Mark Herrmann where a few ex-Yanks like Joe Girardi, Reggie Jackson, and Goose Gossage talk about the decision to keep playing or not, and how...

Yankees Firmed Up Staff When Andy Pettitte

Andy Pettitte signed to a minor league deal with the Yankees.  I guess the Yankees cause mass hysteria, so I shouldn’t have been surprised by how many people asked me if they should pick him, but, alas, you still surprised me, you.  In anything shallower than a 10 team AL-Only league, I wouldn’t go near him.  He wasn’t even that good his last few years of pitching, so I...

The Warning Track, 3-20-12. Wilpons Settle and Andy Pettitte Returns

Co-hosts Karen Vankat and Korbid Thompson discuss on The Warning Track the Wilpons settling out of court. Can the franchise now concentrate on baseball?

Andy Pettitte Stunts Yankee Pitching Prospect Growth, Again

Clemens prosecutors: Pettitte to testify

Federal prosecutors in the Roger Clemens perjury trial plan to have pitcher Andy Pettitte testify about his own use of human growth hormone. Prosecutors spelled out plans for Pettitte in court papers Friday outlining evidence the government intends to introduce that shows many major league baseball players used performance enhancing drugs. The government says Pettitte, who recently...

2012 Spring Training Notes – American League East

The big news this week in the American League East was the return of Andy Pettitte to the New York Yankees.  His return adds another pitcher to the AL-only league player pools while negatively impacting the value of Phil Hughes and Freddy Garcia as well. Here is a look at some of the more interesting news for each team in the AL East halfway through spring training. Baltimore Orioles...

The Yankees Stacked Triple-A Rotation

The Yankees Triple-A rotation will probably consist of: Manny Banuelos (2-2, 4.19) – Age 21 Dellin Betances (0-3, 5.14) – Age 23 Adam Warren (6-8, 3.60) – Age 24 David Phelps (6-6, 3.19) – Age 25 D.J.
