20 Years Later: The 1994 New York Yankees

Don Mattingly. (Photo Credit: Bleacher Report) The 1994 New York Yankees epitomized the true meaning of team. Well balanced with grinders, veterans, up and comers and role players all around. While perhaps not as good on paper as their championship successors of the 1990′s, they had a special vibe about them. Then, the music stopped. Being from Albany, NY, that season was bittersweet...

New York Yankees Post Mortem: 17-April-2014: Tampa Bay Game 1: Yanks Have Price's Number and a triple play

Starting Pitching: CC Sabathia continues his transformation into Andy Pettitte: relying less on speed pitches and focusing on off speed pitches and a cutter. CC got his second win by going 7 innings on 172 pitches ( 72 strikes) giving up 2 runs (1 earned) on 7 hits ( 1 hr) with sixth strikeouts and two walks. Bullpen: Delin Betances had another great showing: going two...

Jeter, Posada, Pettitte, & Mariano Reunited on DJ’s Last Opening Day at Yankee Stadium

Monday’s game against the Orioles at Yankee Stadium was Derek Jeter’s last Opening Day at Yankee Stadium and his best buds Jorge Posada, Mariano Rivera, and Andy Pettitte came out to join him. Pettitte and Mo threw out the first pitch of the game to the Captain and Jorge. We’ll never get used to seeing someone else playing shortstop for the Yanks starting next year other than...

Astros shower Jeter with applause, gifts

Andy Pettitte described Derek Jeter's pregame routine as "crazy, crazy, crazy," and offered this theory as his longtime and soon-to-be-retired teammate prepares to make his way through the Major Leagues as the man of the hour: "I'm sure it's going to be kind of torture for him," Pettitte chuckled. If there is a good kind of torture, this is probably...

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 in Camp, Works With CC

Yes the recently retired Pettitte showed up in camp Monday to do some work with the pitching staff this week. He was flagged by the media almost instantly and asked one question. Was this going to lead to a comeback? Pettitte quickly shot it...

Finding the Fifth Man

It is time to begin the post Andy Pettitte era in the Bronx (again.) With the signing of Tanaka, four of the five starting pitchers are pretty much set barring some 2013-like bad luck. CC Sabathia will most likely open the season per the norm, even though he is coming off his worst season as a starter. His 175 strikeouts in 2013 were the fewest since 2006 and the 28 homers off him...

Mo, Pettitte Headline Hall of Fame Class of 2018

With some recent announcements of players retiring and the farewell tour Mariano Rivera received during the 2013 season, I thought we should take a look at some players who will be eligible for the Hall of Fame five years from now. Mariano Rivera: 1,115 G, 82-60 W-L, 2.21 ERA, 1,284 IP, 652 SV Now the question isn’t if Rivera is a Hall of Famer but is how much of...

Desperate Yankees convinced Pettitte done ‘for good’

The Yankees need a high-end starting pitcher desperately. Andy Pettitte has come out of retirement once before. So would the Yankees — in their time of need — call to see if the left-hander had any interest in coming out of retirement once again? “He has shut it down for good,” general manager Brian Cashman said Friday. “That door is closed.” Pettitte went 11-11 last...

Andrew “Andy” Eugene Pettitte made his debut with the New York Yankees on April 29, 1995 against the Kansas City Royals. It would be the beginning of a career that would span 18 years, lead to 5 World Series Championships and one that set numerous pitching records, not only for the Yankees, but also in all of Major League Baseball (MLB).

What the New York Yankees Pitching Rotation Should Look Like in 2014

It's often said that pitching wins championships. While I don't think there is any conceivable way that the 2014 New York Yankees can win the World Series, I do believe the best way that the team can improve in the near future is to bolster the pitching staff. Andy Pettitte has retired, Hiroki Kuroda will almost surely test the waters of the free agent market, and...

Andy Pettitte Shines in Final Start, Goes The Distance

What Andy Pettitte did on the mound in Houston yesterday was incredible. Not only did that win have Andy leaving on a high note, but it also made him the only pitcher to last 18 years in this league without ever having a losing record. Pettitte showed why he is the all-time leader in postseason wins, and why he was the guy the Yankees always wanted on the hill in the most...

Andy Pettitte goes out in style for the New York Yankees

Andy Pettitte deserved a night like last night. A 17-year veteran in the league, Pettitte honored the game by competing viciously hard his entire career, by spilling out his guts on the mound every time he pitched. Pettitte is one of those players – others being David Ortiz and Jeff Bagwell – who the game has forgiven for taking steroids based on his otherwise sparkling representation...
