Andy Pettitte’s 2008 season went out in style; he won the final regular season game at Yankee Stadium. Now, as Pettitte deals with shoulder tendinitis, the Yanks have shut him down for the season, and the rumblings about his career have started up again. Pettitte will play in 2009 for either the Yankees or no one. While I’m not sold on the idea, the team seems willing to have him back. The proverbial ball is in Andy’s court. If he wants to pitch, the Yanks will have him; if he wants to hang it up, he’ll have gone out with a win in the final game at the House that Ruth Built. That’s not a bad way to go.
