Oh, that's right, I had forgotten the AAA team is the Traveling Yankees Show.
Never saw that coming! I thought their budget was tight. Then again, once upon a time, Pettitte would never have gone for a 2.5 mil deal. What a difference a year of retirement makes.
Jorge has to come out of retirement now too. The Core Four will ride again!
 Can Bernie be far behind?
Game on MLBN tomorrow 1 pm.
 The Empire State Yankees. For this year only.
(4) I forgot to include Bernie! He can and Posada can be switch hitting pinch hitters off the bench.
I know I'm just repeating what everyone else said...but man, I did not see this one coming.
It's too soon for April Fools. Is Mussina next?
 The Hoary Four!
No question this is a weird situation, but I'm astonished to see so many columnists and commenters offer variations on the theme "too many pitchers" in March. Something always happens. Somebody always goes down or just falters.
 Hhahahah! Very good, RI.
This criticism of the Yankees for "too many pitchers" or this being a "risky proposition" is so much hocus pocus. If a very good pitcher like Andy Pettitte wants to pitch for my team for $2.5 million, I say, "Where do I sign?"
Worst case scenario. He starts the year at Triple-A, gets hurt, and decides to retire again. Whatever he does, he doesn't cost the Yankees any draft picks, and doesn't cause any legitimate prospect to be released.
Sometimes the Yankees get criticized just for being the Yankees, and I think that is exactly what is being done here.
As if the Yankees were supposed to say, "Oh no, Andy, we don't see a need for a borderline HOFer and a 2009 World Series hero."
