Andy Pettitte To Announce Retirement

It's being reported by numerous sources that Andy Pettitte will announce his retirement later this afternoon.

This isn't the first time Pettitte has done so, as he said he was done after the 2010 season, after which he sat out the entire next year before returning in 2012. But at 41 years old, I believe this time retirement will stick.

It's really sad that the Yankees are going to lose both Mariano Rivera and Andy Pettitte in the same year, but at the same time it's nice that they will retire together. I hope Rivera gets to close Pettitte's final two starts, one of which will be this Sunday against the Giants, and the other against the Astros the next weekend.

We'll be talking quite a bit about the careers of both Mariano and Andy in the future.
