Andy Pettitte is just chillaxin’

Know what job I’m glad I don’t have?  The “go hang out on the sidewalk in front of Andy Pettitte’s house and hope he comes out on his front porch and says something interesting” job:

Tanned and rested, Andy Pettitte stood on his front porch last night and answered the question on every Yankees fan’s mind: Do you know if you’re going to pitch this year?

“I don’t,” Pettitte told The Post fresh off his two-week vacation in Hawaii. “I’m just chilling out, hanging. I’m relaxing. If I had something, y’all would know. If I knew exactly what I was doing, y’all would know.”

Pettitte also said that New York is a funny place in that every time you say something everyone overreacts, which is why he hasn’t been saying anything.  Like I told ya this morning: the guy knows the city in which he’s spent most of his professional life.

He said that he wants the Yankees “to go, just go on.”  Sounds like two love-struck teenagers saying goodbye after a summer at the lake.

Great. I promised myself I wouldn’t cry. Talk amongst yourselves. I’ll give you a topic: The Andy Pettitte drama is neither a drama nor is it really about Andy Pettitte. Discuss.

A.J. Ramos to undergo season-ending surgery for torn labrum

Mets reliever A.J. Ramos has a torn labrum and will undergo season-ending surgery on Wednesday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

Ramos, 31, has been out of action since late May. In his last two appearances, in Milwaukee against the Brewers, he walked both batters he faced in the 10th inning, then gave up three runs and recorded only two outs the next day. On the season, he owns a disappointing 6.41 ERA with a 22/15 K/BB ratio in 19 2/3 innings. The shoulder issue explains his struggles.

The Mets acquired Ramos from the Marlins ahead of the non-waiver trade deadline last July. Ramos will be eligible for free agency once the season concludes.
