Much like the last three offseasons, Andy Pettitte will spend this one deciding whether or not to continue his playing career. Andy told reporters last night that he’s already accomplished everything he’s wanted to accomplish in his career, and that his decision will be based solely on his family. The Yankees, as they’ve done every year, will give him all the time he needs and of course welcome him back with open arms if he decides to give it another go.
Pettitte was stellar this year (3.28 ERA, 3.85 FIP), but he missed basically two months with a groin injury as well as two starts earlier in the year with an elbow issue. At 38-years-old, his physical state will always be a question. That said, please come back Andy.
