Thank you, Andy Pettitte.
You know, when it’s all said and done for Pettitte, the Yankee may, or may not, elect to retire #46. And, if New York decides not to retire Pettitte’s uniform number, I’d be OK with it.
But, when Andy hangs them up, the Yankees darn well better give Pettitte a plaque in Monument Park.
Andy may never make it to Cooperstown…like Whitey Ford, Lefty Gomez and Red Ruffing. But, Pettitte is a modern day Allie Reynolds – in terms of what he’s meant to the Yankees in his career. And, Reynolds has a plaque in Monument Park.
When you see games like this one, from Andy, it’s just a reminder that Pettitte deserves to be out there too.
