Mark Teixeira believes Andy Pettitte is leaning towards retirement
Mark Teixeira told Ian Begley of ESPN New York today that through text messages with Andy Pettitte, he feels the veteran left-hander is leaning towards retirement.
I haven’t talked to Andy Pettitte in well, ever, actually, and I can also tell you that he is leaning towards retirement. Why? Because Pettitte said so himself in November and Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said almost exactly the same thing as Teixeira just one week ago.
I’m already seeing this story all over the place, but much like those who are snowed in their homes in the northeast part of the country, we’re still in the same place we were yesterday.
