Surely, Andy knows how much we all miss him, despite how well Colon and Garcia have pitched. But, according to today’s ESPN story, he’s staying retired. My question is why did he have to go on Michael Kay’s radio show and stir up all my love for him again? Does he intend to come back to the Yankees at some point?
Here are some excerpts.
“I’m just telling you right now, I don’t think I will ever pitch again.”
That sounds pretty definitive. Well, until you get to this part.
“I miss, as a man, having a job to do.”
OK, let me say this to you, Andy.
“I miss, as a she-fan, having you pitch for the New York Yankees.”
But whatever. I’m over it. Enjoy your life with your family. I’ll just add one more thing in response to this:
Pettitte said he had a prior commitment so he won’t be at Old Timers Day later this month. He added he wasn’t sure he would attend anyway because at 39 he feels he might be too young for such festivities.
I think your prior commitment is bogus and you should attend Old Timers Day, 39 or no 39.
