Piece Of The Puzzle Gone In The Bronx

With Spring Training right around the corner we now know of one future hall of famer who will not be returning to the diamond this season.

Thirty eight year old Andy Pettitte decided to hang it up after 13 seasons with the Yankees and three with the Houston Astros.

He was a three-time All Star, and two-time 20-game winner and a member of five Yankees world championship teams.

Pettitte appeared in two other World Series with the Yankees as well as another with the Astros.

Pettitte’s 19 postseason wins are better than any pitcher in postseason history. He compiled 240 wins, and 138 losses with a 3.88 ERA in his HOF career.

  3. Actually, Pettite left for Houston after 2003, while Williams retired after 2006. And by retired, I meant left out to dry by the Yankees. Pettite came back to the Yankees the year after Bernie was not “invited” (for lack of a better word) back to the team. So- what is the true Core Four? Is it with Pettite, or with Bernie?
