Andy Pettite will retire

Andy Pettitte, possibly the greatest postseason pitcher of all time, will retire Friday.

Longtime pitcher Andy Pettitte will officially retire Friday morning in New York. Pettitte, 38, played 13 seasons  as a Yankee and also a brief 3-year stint with his hometown Houston Astros. Pettitte produced a 240-138 record with a 3.88 ERA and also won 5 world championships, all with New York. Pettitte also retired as the winningest postseason pitcher in Major League Baseball history. The Texan started off the 2010 season 11-2, but then missed almost the remainder of the season with a groin injury and finished 11-3. The Yankees lost in the American League Championship Series to the Texas Rangers.
