More common four-letter words may come to mind for the 2015 Red Sox, but Xander Bogaerts and Mookie Betts are starting to bring another one to mind: hope.

Yanks Lefty Andy Pettitte to Announce Retirement

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.
