Yankees announcer and ESPN Radio host Michael Kay just tweeted the following:

I have learned that Andy Pettitte will officially retire tomorrow. [More] details to come….Michael

Ken Rosenthal has a source that is confirming that Pettitte will retire tomorrow. Jack Curry of YES Network has a full story on it here. He’s heading to New York where there will be a press conference.

This has been the bad news Yankees fans have feared for some time.  They’ve prepared themselves for it, but they’ve all hoped that Pettitte was going to give it one last go-around.

What does this mean for the Yankees rotation and chances?  I take a first stab at it here.  Short version:  everything’s going to have to break right.
