Said a scout, “I get the feeling his career isn’t over. For one, he can still pitch at a high level. Secondly, he didn’t retire with any conviction. The stuff about going back and forth on whether or not to pitch leads me to believe he’ll decide to pitch again.’’I understand and agree with what the scout is saying about Andy's talent and his potential ability to pitch into his 40's. That said, Andy has been considering retirement for years now, and it seems that he's finally committed to retirement and being with his family. I also don't think he's the type of person to go through the press conference and all of that only to change his mind a few months later. He's not Brett Favre or Roger Clemens.
Don't get me wrong, if he does decide to come back at some point that would be great, and the sooner the better, but I highly doubt that's going to happen.
