Pettitte, Clemens to Be Back in Pinstripes?
By mvyb, 07.11.2006, 22:25

The New York Yankees have not won the World Series since Roger Clemens and Andy Pettitte left the Bronx. The rumors that these two pitchers might rejoin New York should bring joy to the hearts of Yankee fans everywhere.
I have so many good memories of Andy Pettite and Rogers Clemens- the games they pitched, the passion they played with, and the success they brought to my team.
Here are just a couple of the great postseason performances we saw from Pettitte and Clemens...
October 14, 2000: ALCS Game 4, Clemens pitches a one-hit shutout against the Seattle Mariners, giving the Bombers a 2-1 series lead.
October 22, 2000: Clemens continues his feud with Piazza, but after the dust settles, Yanks are on top 6-5 ( eight shut-out innings by the Rocket).
October 17 + 22, 2001: Andy Pettitte flat out dominates the Seattle Mariners, earning the ALCS MVP.
October 30, 2001: The Rocket pitches seven brilliant innings, striking out 9.
October 19, 2003: Pettitte pitches 8 and 2/3rds, giving up only one unearned run in a 6-1 Yankee victory.
I'm sure you'all can name a lot more...
After three seasons of doing a Texas two-step, would Roger Clemens and Andy Pettitte consider going duet on a chorus of that well-known New York song?

You know, the one that goes ... "If I can make it there ... it's not the same making it anywhere else."

Right now, although both pitchers on Monday filed for free agency, neither is sure about pitching in 2007. Clemens, baseball's Goodbye Guy, is expressing the usual uncertainties. Pettitte is dealing with burnout, essentially.

But if they do decide to pitch on, are their returns to the Bronx possible?

The Yankees think so, a team source informing the New York Daily News of their intent to at least inquire about the duo's mindset.

Furthermore, plans have already been discussed to actively pursue Pettitte, the left-hander who at 34 is 10 years The Rocket's junior. According to the Daily News, Pettitte has confided to friends that he would consider a return to New York -- if ...

Andy Pettitte is probably one of my favorite Yankees of all time, so seeing him back in pinstripes will make my 2007 season. The Rocket, of course, is always welcome.
Just in case you're unfamiliar with these two players, let me show you what they've done over the course of their careers:
Andy Pettitte
career 186-104, 3.83 ERA
MLB record 13 postseason victories (tied with John Smoltz)
2-time, 20-game winner ( '96 and '03)
1996 runner-up for the Cy Young award
2-time All Star
never won fewer then 12 games in a season for the Yankees
Roger Clemens
career: 348-178, 3.10 ERA
4, 604 career strikeouts ( 2nd all-time)
7 Cy Young awards ( most all-time)
1986 American League MVP ( 24 wins)
struck out 20 batters in a game twice ( only pitcher ever to do so)
You get my point...
Let's hear your thoughts on these two pitchers and their possible return to the Bronx.
