Yankees have not asked Pettitte to come out of retirement

By

Buried at the bottom of this Jeff Passan column is something that really shouldn’t surprise us. Sources have told Passan that the Yankees have not asked Andy Pettitte to come out of retirement, and they don’t plan on asking him either. The 39-year-old lefty said he doesn’t believe he’ll ever pitch again last month, and it’s kinda ridiculous that a guy can’t announce his retirement without questions about a possible comeback these days. Either way, enjoy life after baseball, Andy. I hope the house in Texas has good air conditioning.

    Happy Birthday C.C. !

    Too bad your teammates can’t provide any run support.

    Thank you Brett Favre!

    It was also ridiculous when AP would wait and make Cashman show him some love and say “pretty please” before deciding.

    I was hoping to see a matching “Yankees ask Posada to consider retirement” headline, but I guess not…

    Saw a stat that Martin is batting .185 since 4/23.

    Between these two black holes in the line-up, the reason we’re not seeing Montero catching 2 starters and DHing the rest of games is..?

      The Yanks want to trade him before he’s exposed as a shit player on the MLB level (which would match his attitude).

    Has Pettitte “officially” retired, meaning filing the necessary paperwork and notifying the proper MLB authorities. I ask, since Bernie hasn’t officially retired himself.

      Who cares?

      Officially retiring makes you eligible to collect a pension when you turn 62. That’s the *only* meaning it has. It’s only required to satisfy IRS regulations on pensions.
