Yankees Acquire OF Maxwell from Nationals - N.Y. Post
I had a feeling he wouldn't be back. Oh well.
Thanks for all the great years, Andy.
Stole this from the Man Utd board. Classic Mickey Mantle
Damn.... i was really hoping against hope that he wold come back for one more year seeing how we needed him badly. When Lee didn't sign i thought Andy won't say no, seeing how the situation is.
Oh well. Can't complain about him. Thanks for everything Andy. You were a class act. Even through the whole PED thing. He handled it with his typical grace and almost all baseball people forgave him in a matter of weeks and thats a reflection on him as a person.
Prediction: He won't make the hall and that would be totally unfair.
I think his 19 postseason wins(MLB record) will get him in eventually.
The 19 wins......... man, i don't know. 19-10 3.83 ERA. Historically it hasn't really impacted the hall voters. His PED thing is gonna kill any chance he has.
If there was a stat for "pitching under pressure/closing out series" he would be on top. Actually there should be one. I would call it the ABS (average ball size). Andy's ABS in the playoffs would be like 5.88 or something. Big balls.
The advanced metrics stat could also be called the ROWYCO.
Rock out with your cock out. Oh yeahhh....
I'm extremely upset over the Pettitte news. So much so that it's better I don't comment because I'll end up blasting him -- like I did the last time he walked out on us and signed with the Astros.
(And I don't think he'll ever make the Hall of Fame, even though there are plenty of stiffs in that place who couldn't hold Andy's glove.)

Not a Yankee fan but I always liked Andy Pettite. Just a dedicated work horse. Good luck to him in retirement.
From the N.Y. Post:
Aceves is now with Boston. Seems the Yanks lost interest in him because of his recent injuries.
Aceves Brought on Board - Boston Globe
It's time! Pitchers and catchers report Monday. Position players on Saturday. The first Spring Training game will be Saturday, Feb. 26 against the Phillies. Here is the Yankees' active 40-man roster going into Spring Training:
Dear Baby Jesus, please keep our rotation healthy, out of trouble and keep AJ sane and please please please, send us a top class starting pitcher before the trade deadline. Thanks in advance.
yankee's to get a wildcard spot.
i don't see them finishing ahead of boston.
the pitching is weak IMO..shame they couldn't sign cliff lee.
Yanks Eye Millwood; Nova & Garcia the Faves for Now - N.Y. Post

Colon Limits Damage as Yanks Fall to Phils - MLB.com
Bartolo Colon jeesh!
I miss Andy already and its only been a couple weeks.
If Andy can't get in the HoF, I will at least put him in the Supplemental Hall of Fame with Big Mac, Sosa, Barry, Roger and Sheff.
Andy's a cheat.
But at least he admitted he was wrong.
Unlike that fool Clemens.

I thought Betances looked great. He only faced 4 batters, but his pitches had a lot of pop and movement. Hope it's a sign of things to come.
