The Yankees pitcher is calling it quits, for real this time, at the end of the season, he confirmed today. In all likelihood, that means his final two starts will come Sunday at Yankee Stadium (on Mariano Rivera Day) and next week in Houston, his hometown, against the Astros, his only other professional team. It also means Derek Jeter will be the last of the Core Four standing, if he could do so without getting hurt.
