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...
Even in the parking lot of their spring training complex, the changes around the New York Yankees since the death of George Steinbrenner are evident.
Power-washers that kept the area as clean as a hospital no longer are out at 8 a.m. every single morning at Steinbrenner Field in Tampa, Fla. Garbage cans are not emptied obsessively. Many workers report on time, not early.
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.

After walking Carlos Pena to lead off the bottom of the second inning, Joyce cranked a first-pitch cutter to dead center field for his third homer of the spring. But that was all the offense Tampa Bay could muster.
Back on February 15th the ever socialy akward Alex Rodriguez rolled into Blue & Cream in New York City with his 20-year-old niece Michelle Silva and his girlfriend former WWE Diva Torrie Wilson. Torrie and Michelle rang up a $17,600 bill (which is like $7 to you & I). AROD paid using American Express Black card. As The Mugs favorite paper the New York Post reported...
