Andy Pettite to retire?

According to rehabbing Yankees first baseman Mark Texeira, pitcher Andy Pettite is leaning toward retirement. Texeira has been exchanging text messages with Pettite as the latter is contemplating retirement after his 16th season in the big leagues. Pettite, 38, went 11-3 this year, but missed almost all of the second half with a groin injury. The Yankees failed to repeat this year, losing to the upstart Texas Rangers in the American League Championship Series. The Rangers went on to the World Series for the first time in their history. The Yankees have had a tough offseason, missing out on top free agent Cliff Lee, who decided to join the star-stocked pitching rotation on the Philadelphia Phillies.
