Podcast: Is Andy Pettitte A Hall of Famer?

On Friday, Yankees starting pitcher Andy Pettitte announced that he would be retiring from Major League Baseball for the second time in his career. The 18-year veteran released the following statement:

Getty Images“I’m announcing my retirement prior to the conclusion of our season because I want all of our fans to know now — while I’m still wearing this uniform — how grateful I am for their support throughout my career. I want to have the opportunity to tip my cap to them during these remaining days and thank them for making my time here with the Yankees so special.

“I’ve reached the point where I know that I’ve left everything I have out there on that field. The time is right. I’ve exhausted myself, mentally and physically, and that’s exactly how I want to leave this game.”

Midday host Armen Williams started his 1-3p show on Friday with the question: Will Andy Pettitte go in the Hall of Fame?
