Josh Pettitte Undergoes Tommy John Surgery

Baylor University freshman Josh Pettitte did something Wednesday, his father, New York Yankees great Andy Pettitte, could never relate to during his lengthy career. He underwent Tommy John surgery.  Oh, and the righty even got cut on by the legendary Dr. James Andrews himself after, apparently, pretty short notice.  The surgery seemingly went well, as the 19-year-old was...

Andy Pettitte is going to announce his (second) retirement this afternoon. Much will be written (again) about Pettitte’s career and, of course, his Hall of Fame prospects. Others are better at the history and biography stuff, and, well, at pretty much all of the other stuff, too. Personally, I am not interested in predicting whether a player will get into the Hall of Fame. Analyzing...

Vote: Is Andy Pettitte a Hall of Famer?

Andy Pettitte gets his due in New York City, but it’s Cooperstown, N.Y., that’s on everyone’s mind now that the left-handed veteran appears to be done for good.
