good for him. something to be said for solid longevity.
watching him fall off the mound twice in his last two games while trying to field the ball was a little sad, but andy is someone that always gives a solid effort, so kudos.

Will he reach 2000k's as a Yankee? I hope so. He has 66 so far this year and needs 42 more.

[2] K's are easier to get in this era, so if he stays moderately healthy he should get there.

Yeah, I say he makes it.

i say he makes it. i also say he comes back next year. he mentioned something about everyone retiring 'around the same time', but i don't think he wants to take any thunder away from Mo.

one more year of Andy! (i hope.)

Imagine how many more ks the chairman of the board would have had if Casey kept him in a regular rotation for his whole career. I recall, buy Alex obviously knows better, that Casey "saved" him for big games.
