Andy Pettitte said to be on way to NY, will retire Friday

Posted by: Sam Borden - Posted in Misc on Feb 03, 2011 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Michael Kay was the first to report (and others have quickly followed) that Andy Pettitte will officially announce his retirement on Friday after meeting with Yankees officials today.

That means that the Yankees rotation for 2011 is: CC Sabathia, Phil Hughes, A.J. Burnett and pick two from Sergio Mitre/Bartolo Colon/Freddy Garcia/Ivan Nova/Anyone Else You Can Think Of.

    Well, Andy, thanks for a great NY career. Too bad he’s not going out after a WS win, but, that’s life. Hope he has a great one.

    Thanks for the memories, Andy, but the Yankees will be fine.

    Wow, sad news but good for him. Thanks for all the great memories, Andy!

  8. CountryClub February 3rd, 2011 at 12:42 pm

    Good for him. He doesn’t owe the fans or team anything. He gave everything he had for a long time.

  9. The Mad Prince in Pinstripes February 3rd, 2011 at 12:42 pm

    Thanks for everything Andy. You were a hero of mine from your rookie season on and your devotion and work ethic for the Yankees has been remarkable.

    Enjoy the time with your family in retirement.

    This is a bittersweet day for Yankee baseball.

  10. West Coast Yankee Fan February 3rd, 2011 at 12:43 pm

    I predict Pettitte will say that after working out, he determined that he couldn’t do it physically anymore, that’s my gut feeling. Whether it’s the groin specifically or just a general thing – that’s what I think he will say.

    Can’t be upset with Andy, it’s his decision.

    Thanks for the years of greatness.

    The first of the Four is gone.

    Now – who is going to step up?

  13. Chip February 3rd, 2011 at 12:44 pm

    1. Prepare for Cash to sign Millwood

    2. Andy is not a hall of famer

    3. no one should wear 46 again

    4. projected rotation when the winter started was: Lee, CC, Hughes, Andy, AJ
    Now it’s CC, Hughes, AJ, Garcia, Nova

  14. The Mad Prince in Pinstripes February 3rd, 2011 at 12:44 pm

    I think there are a lot of factors working here and they’ve all been discussed at length on this blog and by the media.

    Clemens’s lawsuit
    Injuries
    Family
    Age

    I’d have loved to have known this information back in November (or last season so that I could have seen him pitch one last time), but I completely understand his indecision. Not an easy choice to make.

    I’m really saddened by this.

  15. saucY February 3rd, 2011 at 12:45 pm

    Thank you Andy and enjoy your retirement.

  16. Patrick February 3rd, 2011 at 12:45 pm

    I’m just happy Andy came back to the Yanks for 4 good seasons and helped us win another World Series. Sad to see him go but he was a great Yankee.

    If Pettitte is really retiring. I want to say it was an honor to face one of the most domination Leftys in the history of the game.

    More bittersweet day than sad day.

    I respect a guy to hangs it up on his terms instead of bagging another 12-14 million and not have his heart into it.

  20. The Mad Prince in Pinstripes February 3rd, 2011 at 12:46 pm

    Yes, 46 BETTER BE RETIRED.

    Pettitte will never make the HOF, not because he doesn’t have the credentials…which he barely does…but because he admitted to using HGH. Sorry to taint the sad moment with this, but its part of the larger discussion.

  21. Rich in NJ February 3rd, 2011 at 12:47 pm

    “I predict Pettitte will say that after working out, he determined that he couldn’t do it physically anymore, ”

    Emotional because it reminds me of just how old I’ve gotten.

    I have astonishingly vivid memories of him getting shellacked in Game 1 of the 1996 WS (Sorry Andy). I was six years old then.

    Definitely enough to make me choke up a bit.

  32. SJ44 February 3rd, 2011 at 12:51 pm

    The guy isn’t dying, he’s retiring.

    Lighten up.

  33. ChokeXOnXFailure February 3rd, 2011 at 12:51 pm

    My only disappointment is that the last game he ever pitched was the 7 inning, 8-0 performance, where he had a rough first inning, settled down, and then watched bullpen put it out of reach, and He Who Shall Not Be Named make our offense look silly.

    The all time playoff wins leader deserved to go out on a playoff win. It just wasn’t meant to be.

    Good luck and thanks, Andy. See you in July.

  34. Erica in NY February 3rd, 2011 at 12:51 pm

    I had a hunch he would go in this direction (at one point I was going to make a bet with Nick last season), but it doesn’t make me less sad.

    He was a shining star

    As much as I expected this, I am sad to see Andy retire. He’s been such a joy to watch, such a fierce competitor, and the ideal teammate. He will be deeply missed for many reasons.

    I am just sad. It is hard to say goodbye.

    He really must have felt he could not do he job the way he expects himself to.

  37. Mgumpher February 3rd, 2011 at 12:53 pm

    Disappointed as a Yankee fan that Andy will not be pitching for them anymore, but I am grateful for the years we got to see him play.

    Its sad to see a player of his caliber going when I think he could still do the job, but I wish him well and thank him for the enjoyment he provided us.

  38. upstate kate February 3rd, 2011 at 12:53 pm

    I am sure Andy put a lot of thought into his decision. I will really miss him.

    I wish the fans would have had the opportunity to say goodbye…altho as low key as Andy is, perhaps he didn’t want a farewell tour

    Chip, definitely NOT Pedro or Beckett, I know that much.

    I’m sure that given the circumstances, most folks would say Andy Pettitte, but I mean come on, Schilling and Johnson were about as dominant as they come in 2001…and that was Johnson’s only WS experience.

    And I love how you excluded Clemens from that list because, before all the steroid revelations, he’d be, far and away, EVERYONE’s Game 7 starter. Admit it.

  75. Lost February 3rd, 2011 at 1:05 pm

    Pet:

    It’s really no a surprise, yanks privately have known that it was unlikely Pet would return. Cash has mentioned many times that they were operating as if he was done. It doesn’t impact anything they were trying to do yesterday.. if Andy retired 2 months ago, they still would be looking for a starter.. there’s just nobody out there to pursue right now.

    It stings to hear it official, truly it does, but even with Andy we are still looking for SP.

    There is no doubt about the entire org looking and willing to do whatever it takes to land a quality arm, this means trading people that you’ve heard and haven’t heard about as a chip.. but the truth be told, there’s not a lot of action even with a couple possibilities in the fire.

    I still think it was a mistake to not take a chance with a solid arm like Greinke, even if he failed in NY, they’d be able to trade him out of NY with strong value and pitch it as, “he’s still an ace, just can’t handle the pressure in NY” but that’s a done deal, not even sure why I brought it up.

  76. Captain Clutch February 3rd, 2011 at 1:06 pm

    I think the Clemens stuff forced Pettitte to retire. Everyone knows how Andy is and I really don’t think he felt comfortable signing a $12m+ contract and then have to leave the team for a month and not have his head totally into playing becuase he is thinking about court. It’s going to be a tough couple of months for Andy and his family. He will probably blame his body not responding but it’s hard to over look the Clemens situation.

    This is what makes baseball great…the passing of the guard from one generation of players to the next generation…the retirement of a great star, and the uncertainty of who will step up to replace him…but yet, there is always the game the goes on.

  82. YankeesNmore February 3rd, 2011 at 1:06 pm

    Brian Cashman’s horrific offseason is now complete.

    Ironically enough, F-ing up on Cliff Lee probably helped Andy Pettitte make the decision to retire.

    The 2011 Yankees are now lined up squarely behind the 8-ball, if not flat out buried, thanks to their pathetic GM.

    Is is past time for a change.

    Can’t help but wonder whether this sealed the deal.

    http://www.nypost.com/p/news/l.....Mpe52n4kmK

    In any event, I totally believed Andy was coming back. I will admit that I am very very very very sad. And it has nothing to do with what Andy would have done to shore up the rotation. It has everything to do with having Andy as a part of our baseball lives for so long and remembering how much he brought to the game and how much he meant to the Yankees. Andy is a class act and always comported himself that way. I will definitely miss his presence as a member of the Yankees.

    Game 7? Bob Gibson.

  88. GreenBeret7 February 3rd, 2011 at 1:09 pm

    As much as family ties mean to him, I’m thinking that last year’s groin injury may have been a lot deeper than susprected and it’s just not healing. It may have also weakened the back muscles after trying to pitch. Says a lot either way, considering how well he pitched in his post season games. Just guessing, though.

    On the other hand, maybe Kay got it wrong, and he’s coming to NY to sign a two year deal.

  91. SJ44 February 3rd, 2011 at 1:10 pm

    It’s probably the Yankees more than Andy looking to meet face to face.

    Either to try and talk him out of it, or to make sure they had a retirement PC honoring him if they can’t because everybody connected with the team really likes him.

    The only constant in sports is change.

    Yankees fans have been spoiled by the fact 4 HOf or near HOF players have played together for so long.

    That hasn’t happened in the history of American team sports and probably won’t happen again.

  92. jacksquat February 3rd, 2011 at 1:11 pm

    I see no reason for them to sign Millwood. They already signed Garcia anticipating this. It’s possible they already knew when they signed Garcia.

    Brian Cashman’s horrific offseason is now complete.

    Ironically enough, F-ing up on Cliff Lee probably helped Andy Pettitte make the decision to retire.

    The 2011 Yankees are now lined up squarely behind the 8-ball, if not flat out buried, thanks to their pathetic GM.

    Is is past time for a change.
    ——————-

    I know I’m going to regret asking this but – how did Cashman screw up on Cliff Lee? Other than offering him the most money and not being prophetic enough to move the Yankees to Philadelphia of course?

  94. Erin February 3rd, 2011 at 1:11 pm

    TylerKepner Pettitte called Hal Steinbrenner to tell him his plans to retire. Tough blow for Yanks, obviously. Oh and the HOF stuff? I would say yes.

    cashman messed up on lee because he didnt just throw the money at him. he tried to be creative and not allow the yankees to get raked over the coals for a ton of money. he penny pinched, cash could have just paid the guy $30 million per year for 6 years. but, let’s see how our team operates in the future when the free agent classes have very few players to choose from.

  105. G. Love February 3rd, 2011 at 1:17 pm

    Horrible news. We needed a dedicated Andy in the rotation this year.

    That said, he was a great Yankee and deserves to go out on his terms.

    But no one can sit here today and diminish the importance of his loss to the 2011 season. It’s a huge blow.

    The off season plan of Lee and Pettitte busted completely and now the organization has more riding on the right tatted arm of AJ Burnett than ever before.

    He has the potential to make or break the season.

    I hope they go sign Millwood now to add to the mix. It’s the best band aid they can add at this point to give the team rotation options because any way you shake it right now, the team needs 2 starting pitchers immediately.

    We’re going to be very right handed. I know Jarrod Washburn sat out last year, but I wonder if he’d be willing to come to camp and see if he still can do the job.

    It’s a sad day. I think Andy’s too young to retire. His stuff last year was excellent.

  106. SJ44 February 3rd, 2011 at 1:18 pm

    Chip,

    Here is what this clown will probably say….

    “Cashman should have done what he did with CC. Offer him whatever he wanted”.

    Problem with that logic is twofold:

    1. Cashman isn’t authorized to do that. He can only offer what ownership APPROVES him to offer.

    2. It’s completely different than CC’s situation. CC is 3 years younger, healthier, and the Yankees are a better team than they where coming off 2008.

    Sometimes reality doesn’t fit in the fanboy’s daily rantings about Cashman.

  107. The Mad Prince in Pinstripes February 3rd, 2011 at 1:18 pm

    Cashman had nothing to do with Cliff Lee signing in Philly.

    Get over it people: HE DIDN’T WANT TO PITCH FOR THE YANKEES!!!! NOT EVERYONE WANTS TO PITCH FOR THE YANKEES!!!!

    Actually I’ll be shocked if he says anything – he’s made this statement before and whenever he’s asked about it that generally quiets him for a couple of hours. Kind of like how when a baby cries you pick it up and it stops crying…just wants a little attention.

    Cashman had no ownership authorization to offer Cliff Lee a 6 year, 30 million dollar contract.

    If he did, ownership should be drug tested because it would be the worst contract in baseball history.

    Always cracks me up how fans think the Yankees can just pay anybody anything at any given time.

    the yanks are getting younger and lowering there payroll a lot.

    the cliff lee folklore is great; he took a ton less money from the pillies!!not true not even close to true.. why not pay a 32 year old who has gotten hurt multiple times insane money for ridiculous years? because cashman has a brain…

    CC Sabathia wanted to pitch in the NL and on the West Coast. How’d the Yankees solve that problem?

    They paid what Cashman himself termed “a New York premium” to get Sabathia to give up those things.

    Cashman said the Yankees would not have to pay such a premium for Lee… He was wrong… again.

    Lee wanted Philly, because he loved it there, was sad when they traded him. He also wanted to pitch in the NL as opposed to getting his ass kicked in the AL east. He also wanted to hit.

    i can keep going…. It’s not every baseball players dream to wear the pinstripes.

  134. Chip February 3rd, 2011 at 1:27 pm

    In a silly statement Buster Olney thinks now the Yankees will be big players for Joe Blanton and will overpay to get him…

    NOOOOO they won’t.

    If Cashman didn’t want to deal with teams that thought he was desperate before he’s certainly not going to do it now.

    Amaro will try to get Cashman to take on all the money and give up a good prospect…forget that.

    … and Hughes.

    We are essentially hoping that CC pitches like he has, Hughes progresses like he should, and Burnett pitches good like we thought he would.

    When Girardi and Cashman said that we were 1 starting pitcher shy of having a contender, they included Pettitte into the mix.. now we’re 2 shy.

  143. Betsy February 3rd, 2011 at 1:29 pm

    Well, I knew it all along – I felt that Andy was just postponing this because it was one of the hardest things he’s ever had to do. I can’t say I’m not disappointed in him because he still can pitch, but it’s his body, his life and he has every right to do what he wants.

    This leaves a huge hole in the rotation. I would say Jody Mac and Tierney are over the top when they say that as it stands, the offense will have to be dominant just for the team to win 80 games, but a rotation of CC, Phil, AJ, Colon/Garcia and Nova is not very good. We have no choice but to hope that several of these guys improve, and AJ in particular improve a LOT. As to getting a pitcher at the break, teams will hold the Yankees up – we’ll have to give up half the farm probably.

    I wonder when the Yankees will ever have a stable rotation.

  144. Michelle B. of Yankee Stadium West February 3rd, 2011 at 1:29 pm

    Scuttlebut is that it’ll be Aviles, with Getz playing 2B. Betemit as the utility guy. That’ll be a tough team to watch this year. Moose Tacos, Hosmer, Myers, et al can’t get to KC fast enough.

  148. MG February 3rd, 2011 at 1:30 pm

    Congratulations to Andy Petttitte, one of the great Yankee pitchers of all time, for, as SJ so aptly put it, leaving $12-14M on the table to walk away. I wonder how many other players would do the same-the list would be really short except for Mike Mussina.

    Andy will go down in history as the ultra competitor who is also one of the truly nice guys in sports. I’ll miss watching him on there on the mound more than I can begin to imagine right now.

  149. rodg12 February 3rd, 2011 at 1:30 pm

    Sad to hear the Andy news. Such a great Yankee. Have loved watching him all these years in the Pinstripes. Great postseason pitcher. He will be missed. Wish him all the best from this point forward with his family.

    Hopefully he will be brought back for a # retiring ceremony this season and for Old Timer’s Day in a couple years.

  150. G. Love February 3rd, 2011 at 1:31 pm

    This officially should end Jorge’s catching career. I only imagined him getting starts if Andy came back due to Andy’s pickoff move negating the running game.

    One of the best pickoff moves I’ve ever seen.

    And no one has any right to criticize fans for being disappointed that the off season plan of Lee and Pettitte went bust. We were being sold that plan as long ago as last year and there clearly was not a good backup plan to that failing.

    The Yankees will survive and win this season. That said, this is tough news.

    I have faith in 2 of our starting pitchers. I’ll believe AJ is going to get better when I see it. He mentally checked out of games all season long last year and quit on the mound several times. He has a lot to do to earn the fan’s faith back.

    You also said no way that the Yanks would sit Posada and play Molina in Philly during the World Series. You also said Texas would never offer Lee a deal similar to the Yanks.

    When exactly are you right about anything? Even a broken clock is right twice a day

  155. YankeesNmore February 3rd, 2011 at 1:32 pm

    The Yankees offer was no better than the Rangers’ offer, and might have been worse once taxes were figured into the equation.

    The Yankees made a COMPETITIVE offer… When Sabathia was available, they blew everybody out of the water with their FIRST offer, then bid against themselves by adding another year and another $21 million to an offer that was already WAY better than anybody else was offering.

  157. BoJo February 3rd, 2011 at 1:32 pm

    Regarding Andy in HOF:

    Not positive whether Pettitte gets into HOF or not. Borderline, but he does have some strong credentials due to:

    1) Play-off success.
    2) His lifetime WAR of 50.2 is just about 5 points below where I think he would get in…but he is certainly ahead of many HOFers even at that level.
    3) Winning 100 games over 500%
    4) Ranking in all-time Yankee win list
    5) 240 wins (still not chicken feed)

    I also think another 10 victories (or 250 total) would have gotten him in…

    There might be an initial taint on his HGH episode, but after ARod and Bonds and others get in, that will go away.

    If I were to bet on it, I would say he does get in after 12 years on ballot.

  158. Bronx Jeers February 3rd, 2011 at 1:33 pm

  163. SJ44 February 3rd, 2011 at 1:34 pm

    As has been pointed out, the CC and Lee situations were completely different.

    Yet, the Yankees AAV off was the same as the Phillies. That’s not “lowballing”.

    Lee didn’t even go back to the Yankees, or Rangers for that matter, when he got the Phillies offer.

    That tells me he wanted to pitch for the Phillies. His right as a FA.

  166. Jerkface February 3rd, 2011 at 1:35 pm

    The Yankees offer was no better than the Rangers’ offer, and might have been worse once taxes were figured into the equation.

    It was for more guaranteed money than the Rangers and the difference in taxes is not significant enough, considering players are taxed every state they play a game in. They offered 6 years for more guaranteed money than anyone.

    Lee wasn’t worth 30 mil a year and as long as ownership pushes a 200-210 mil budget the cost of players does matter.

  167. mick February 3rd, 2011 at 1:35 pm

    TylerKepner Pettitte’s a tough HOF call, but to me, as with Morris, postseason impact means a lot. He had October duds, but 19-10, 3.83 is high impact.

  177. MG February 3rd, 2011 at 1:38 pm

    I would guess the Yankees start looking at filling that very large hole left by Andy in the rotation from outside the organization, there is no one internally ready to fill that spot. Plenty of trades are made this late in the offseason.

    Losing Andy probably lowers the expectations on the Yankees win total from 95-90 right now pending whatever changes are made in the rotation. He would have probably won 13-15 games, his replacement might be good for 10 instead unless a starter is obtained in trade.

  178. Warning Track Power February 3rd, 2011 at 1:39 pm

    Andy has much more class than that moron from Mississippi-Favre.

    Once Andy announces he is walking away, do not expect him to wear another uniform on Aug 1, 2011 or any other date.

    Joel Sherman basically said the same thing at the winter meetings.

    If he could have been a part of a rotation with CC-Lee-Hughes-AJ, I don’t think he could have turned it down.

    Not to mention, his responsibility to the team would be reduced if we had Lee, perhaps making him more comfortable coming back, even knowing he would have to spend time on the DL and not have to “fight” through injuries because the team needs him.

    Andy was a guy I had absolute faith in – he was a rock on the mound. Even though he went to Houston, when he returned, it was like he’d never left. There’s going be a hole in that clubhouse; Andy was a mentor to the pitchers – I believe Phil’s locker was next to his and he soaked up as much knowledge as he could.

    I am not sure which is dumber–thinking Cashman screwed up on Lee or thinking a 6 year deal at about $25M per year was a good deal for the Yankees.

    I said back then that I would be happy to pass on Lee, and I am still happy he didn’t sign here. The old strategy of signing pitchers past their prime has proven to be a bad one…and this would have been the worst yet.

  196. Zach S February 3rd, 2011 at 1:44 pm

    Really wanted Andy to come back for one more year, especially after they didn’t get Lee. Was looking forward to him walking off the mound that one last time and getting the ovation he deserved. Oh well. Now I’m not so sure how they stand this season. Need 1 more starter stat!

  199. cityofdreams27x February 3rd, 2011 at 1:47 pm

    I’m sorry but while I will always love and respect Andy Pettitte for what he has done, I can’t sit here and lie about the way I feel about this decision.

    No doubt this guy had it in his mind he was going to retire, probably as early as 2 months ago, and he waits until a week & a half before spring training to announce it? While not wait until April Andy?? We hear he can’t mentally prepare for another season.. Then we hear he would have pitched if we got Lee. He is so close to the Hall of Fame, was on track for one of his best seasons ever before the injury last year and now all of a sudden, at the worst possible time, he decides he can’t do it anymore? He obviously doesn’t think this team could win a championship, as constructed and doesn’t want to be the #2 again but get paid like a #4 or #5. That’s what this is really all about and that’s all sports is ever really about. The dollar. Because if he would have pitched if Lee was here, well that tells me all I need to know. The fact that he would have been fine being the #3 but paid as a #4 just to have the chance at another ring. But he isn’t going to do it for less $ and be expected to win 20 games, not at this stage in his career. Plus he always has enough money for 3 generations of Pettittes. Of course he would retire. Thanks for leaving the organization you claim to love hanging though. He really couldn’t have announced this back in December after we failed to get Lee? That’s the real issue I have. I respect his decision but the timing… I really, really thought he’d give it at least half a season.

    I’m a huge Pettitte fan but words can’t express how disapointted I am right now.

    I’ll respectfully disagree to a degree. Obviously Pettitte’s health was no guarantee had he signed, which would make it yet another thing that had to go right. That said, his presence would have required only one of the Garcia, Colon, Nova crowd step up and claim a spot in the rotation and probably makes Burnett’s ascent from shytebum to decent pitcher even more necessary than it otherwise might have been.

  202. bruceb February 3rd, 2011 at 1:53 pm

    Cityofdreams27 you will get slaughtered on this blog for airing such radical opinions but some of what you say is actually fair comment. The Yanks desperately needed Andy this year and this is a bad time to turn his back on them.

  203. BoJo February 3rd, 2011 at 1:54 pm

    I guess I am coming around to the thinking that Cashman is at fault here. The FACT that Cashman didn’t even try to kidnap on of Andy’s kids and hold him ransom just leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I mean–seriously–is he even trying anymore?!

  204. GreenBeret7 February 3rd, 2011 at 1:58 pm

    No way is Lee worth $4-$5 mil a year more than Sabathia at an older age. That’s quite likely what it was going to take for Lee to love NY more than Philadelphia.

    As far as blowing $10 mil guaranteed on two chances as opposed to $0, that’s would be the price of two very good or one exceptional midseason pick-up of a starter or two big mideason bats. The Yankees will piece together 20-24 wins out of the #4-#5 slots, like they’ve done for years.

  205. trisha - true pinstriped blue February 3rd, 2011 at 2:00 pm

    cityofdreams, it was just announced that Clemens’ attempt to get the NY defamation suit thrown out was rejected. That means there will be two federal trials that Andy will have to be a part of. Maybe Andy was waiting for that information to make his decision. I do think that those trials going forward had some inmpact on his decision.

    Look at it this way. Andy was going to have to testify in those cases whether or not he was scheduled to play. And I’m sure those are going to be very draining and emotional for him. It might have affected his play, and you know it would be circus circus around the team.

    I don’t believe for a minute that Andy knew for sure he was going to retire much sooner than when he decided to announce.

    Cashman had the money in the budget and full authority to sign Soriano… And ever AFTER ownership said they wanted him and worked out the deal, Cashman STILL made a big point during the presser about how much he didn’t want Soriano.

    Somebody loan this dude a quarter so he can afford to pay attention.

    Per Buster Olney: “The Yankees don’t feel like they need to be in a big rush to augment rotation; they have two months to evaluate own guys…”

    Great job by Cashman… Then, when the Yankees are completely buried at the end of that two months, Cashman can talk about how there is no point is trading prospects for a pitcher now that the team is out of it.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  235. how much is yours worth? August 10th, 2014 at 10:58 pm

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

    I’ve been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.

    If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
