      Hey, look at Moyer. Maybe Andy has three more years in him..

      Makes me sad to think about 2004-2006, 2011. It would’ve been fun celebrating Pettitte’s achievement in becoming the winningest pitcher in Yankee history last season…

      I agree with Jim; I don’t see it happening unless he pitches another three years. I can’t see him pitching for another three years when Rivera and Jeter will both likely be gone. I assume part of Pettitte’s motivation here is knowing that Posada retired and Rivera is soon to follow and he wanted one last chance to win with his old friends.
