Yanks’ Pettitte retires, ‘hunger’ is not there

Quote:
NEW YORK (AP)—Andy Pettitte(notes) kept putting off a final decision, until his wife told him in late January that it was time.

“I was starting to get a little irritable,” he said. “And so she basically booted me and said, ‘Go figure this out.”’

So he drove four hours from his home in Deer Park, Texas, to his ranch near the Mexican border.

“I’m going to play,” he remembered thinking. “The fans, the Yankees need me to play. I’m going to play. My wife supports it. My kids support it.”

And then he thought some more.

“When I digged deep down in and I did some soul-searching—I don’t even know how to explain,” he said. “It wasn’t there. It wasn’t there like I wanted it to be there.”

I am giddy with anticipation over the thought of AJ Burnett starting a game against Boston. That lineup might drive Burnett's win method into the next century.

It's also ignoring the fact that 3 days before Pettitte retired, he spontaneously stopped being WINMETHOD so even if he had stayed, he would have been cut.
