We have months to talk about what Andy Pettitte retiring means for the Yankees and years to talk about his Hall of Fame chances. But the best way to think about Andy Pettitte today is as a fabulous ballplayer.  In that vein, Mike Axisa of River Ave. Blues has put together a great photo retrospective of Andy Pettitte’s career. By all means, check it out.

Best part: Pettitte talking with a Little League-age Colby Rasmus back in 1999.  Probably makes Pettitte feel a bit old. Probably makes Rasmus feel really damn good.  Cool picture either way.

    Hm. In one shot, his son is wearing a Mets cap. A sign of teen rebellion to come? Probably not.

    I could nitpick about there being no Astros pics, but it IS a Yankees blog. And as much as I and other do like to note Andy was an Astro, his career is defined by his time in the Bronx.

    Thanks for encouraging me to check it out. Very Cool.

    The 3rd picture down really makes clear why pitchers have so much arm trouble. That is just a weird way for your arm to end up.

    I started wearing my caps low in high school because of Andy Pettitte. That capture from Aug. 2, 2002 is the quintessential Andy Pettitte look.

    What’s really interesting, at least from the photos, is that Pettite, an acknowledged “PED” user, has the same body in 1995 as he does now. Where are you on that one, Murray and the rest of the gang???
