Sep 11, 2013; Baltimore, MD, USA; New York Yankees starting pitcher Andy Pettitte (46) throws in the first inning against the Baltimore Orioles at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. Mandatory Credit: Joy R. Absalon-USA TODAY SportsAnother member of the famed "Core Four" is retiring... for the 2nd time, actually.

Andy Pettitte, who first retired after the 2010 season, is calling it quits once again, leaving Derek Jeter as the only member out of the Yankees' exclusive mini-group to (possibly) remain active in 2014.

Jorge Posada retired after the 2011 season, and Mariano Rivera announced before the season that 2013 would be his last year.  Now, Pettitte will be the next to walk off into the sunset, most likely for good this time.

Joel Sherman of the NY Post first broke the news, and says Pettitte's reasons are likely that his body and the Yankees are breaking down, and he doesn't want to be around when both of them fall apart.

Pettitte will have one more start, this Sunday, and then his career will be over.

What do you think about Pettitte's career? Is he Hall of Fame worthy?
