|Connelly’s Top Ten: Patriots Win By Less Than a FOOT||Panic Mode in Full Effect, Minutemen are Struggling||Patriots Survive Gritty Challenge From Jets||Smart Era Gets Off to a Good Start with Win over T’wolves|
As if the awesome offseason grabs by the Sox and the losing bid for Cliff Lee wasn’t enough, some salt to the Yankees’ wounds is about to be added when lefty Andy Pettitte will announce his retirement on Friday, according to WEEI’s Jerry Spar. The 16 year vet has a career ERA of 3.88, and a career record of 240-138.
I would never in my right mind put it past New York to sling some sort of blockbuster deal, spending obscene amounts of money to get a replacement. But with Pettitte sailing off into the sunset, we can be sure of two things after the way this offseason has played out so far. One is that the Yankees are definitely playing catch-up to Boston this offseason, without a doubt. The second is that the Sox have one less stud in pinstripes to worry about this coming year.
