New York Yankees
Everyone knew it was coming.
After the one year contract, the struggling outings, the aging body, it was clear that this season was going to be the last that Yankee legend Andy Pettitte would don the Pinstripes. That didn’t make his retirement announcement on Friday afternoon any easier to hear.
Kenny Ducey and Eric Mollo react to another awful showing from Daisuke Matsuzaka, and wonder if Kaz Matsui and Chien-Ming Wang have actually had better careers. Also, they dive into a big week for the Yankees, and a petition to abolish the 'Win' in baseball.
Marty Glickman spent 12 years at WFUV teaching the student broadcasters the art of doing play-by-play. He began with Bob Papa and his final pupil was Spero Dedes. Spero gives his recollection of Marty including what he meant to him and his feelings upon seeing the new HBO Documentary "Glickman". You can also hear Bob and Spero talk with Andrew Bogusch and Rich McLaughlin, also students of Marty, in special One on One interviews this past Saturday.
