Yankees Retiring Posada, Williams, and Pettitte numbers, honor Randolph

Recommended Posts

Give me a break I watched every game those seasons Andy was a significantly more valuable player and was both regular season and playoff MVP of the 1996 World Series team. Without that first World Series the other championships may not even happen. He's one of the greatest postseason pitchers of all time for any team not just the Yankees. He absolutely should have his jersey number retired this isn't even a debate.

 

Pettitte was a good pitcher and a good playoff pitcher but you're overstating his results.  And he shouldn't be a HOFer.

 

As far as Bernie and Pettitte, if I'm starting a team and I can pick one of the two.  I take Bernie Williams all day long over Andy Pettitte.

How do Yankee fans who hate ARod for cheating reconcile that Pettitte is really the same?

They're not the same. Not every "crime" (lack of a better word) is equal. Their circumstances could not be different. Alex has gone out of his way to throw people under the bus to cover up his repeated lies. He sued the Yankees, their team doctors, MLB, MLBPA. He's a bad guy and he's repeatedly embarrassed baseball and the Yankees. You can't say that about Andy Pettitte who's been a model citizen and great representative of the Yankees. Taking HGH erases that? It does not. Besides, the Yankees and their fans don't have to answer to you. Why do you care how they honor their players? Yankees and their fan base love Andy for his 15 years off service and his contribution to 5 World Series Championships. HGH doesn't change that and it really doesn't matter if you don't believe his story or his reasoning for taking HGH.

Pettitte doesn't have the high ground on anyone.

Good playoff pitcher? He has the all time record for postseason wins.

I grew up watching Bernie I bought his rookie card when he first came up but good offensive outfielders are a dime a dozen especially in that era.

 

He was good, he also had tons of opportunity to pitch in the playoffs for a team that was dominant.
