Now that it's official, I can finally uncross my fingers, put my 4-leave clover away, and celebrate.
THANK. FUCKING. GOD!!!!!!!!! ANDY IS COMING BACK!!!!!!!
I know I've tried to put a positive spin on the last couple weeks, but now that I don't have to pretend to be OK with Dustin Moseley and Javy Vazquez sucking balls anymore, I'm just not going to. A weak link is being removed from the rotation, and the Yankees' 2nd best pitcher is coming back just in time for the end of the year run to the division title and the start of the march through the playoffs to title 28. That's good news when your team is a couple of timely hits away from a 10-game losing streak. Sunday can't come fast enough.
I can honestly say that this is definitely the first, and most likely the only, time I will ever be this excited about a 38-year-old man coming back into my life. But when that man is Andy Pettitte, I'm OK with it.
