Pettitte announced his retirement on Friday, citing a lack of “hunger” as the reason he is no longer going to pursue baseball. The 38-year-old left-handed pitcher played 13 of his 16 seasons with the New York Yankees and won five World Series titles with the team.

Pettitte had a career record of 240-138 and a 3.88 ERA. His postseason record was 19-10 with a 3.83 ERA. Last season, Pettitte went 11-3 for the Yankees in 21 starts. His ERA was 3.28, the lowest he had since 2005.

According to oddsmakers from online sportsbook, the Yankees currently have 6/1 odds to win the 2011 World Series. Pettitte wasn’t expected to be back this season for the most part, so their odds likely won’t be affected much.
