Pettitte's Return to New York, A Real Possibility
By mvyb, 05.12.2006, 20:27

As I've said before, I'm a huge fan of Andy Pettitte and would love to see him back in pinstripes for a couple years. I know he's not as young as he used to be and his stuff wasn't all that overpowering last year, but I still think he has a place in the Yankee rotation. I think he'd make a big difference in the postseason, not only with his skill but also with his determination and desire to win.
The Journal News just published another article on the chances of Andy Pettitte returning to the Bronx. To my great excitement, the article says that Pettitte's rejoining the Yankees is a real possibilty.
Andy Pettitte could be on his way back to the Yankees, agent Randy Hendricks said this afternoon.

"Andy hasn't decided for sure he wants to play next season, but we are negotiating with the Yankees," Hendricks said. "So obviously that is a possibility."

It's great to hear that the sleeping giant (our beloved Yankees) is actually doing some negotiating this offseason. They've been oddly quiet of late, letting Boston sieze and hold on to the spotlight. But hopefully, these discussions with Pettitte are serious and will continue until he agrees to come back to New York.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman would not comment directly on Pettitte. But he said he was seeking to upgrade the rotation and that signing Kei Igawa would not deter him from doing that.

Asked whether a player who wanted a short-term deal would be more attractive considering the state of the free-agent market, Cashman smiled.

"That would depend on the player," he said.

Ok, so there's defenitely stuff goin' on here, but as always, Cashman is staying tight-lipped.

Astros manager Phil Garner said he spoke with Pettitte last week and was given the impression that he wanted to play again.

"(The) most recent conversation I had with him, he was more than leaning; he's really considering coming back to play," Garner said.

Still more good news... If Pettitte wants to play in '07, there's a great chance the Yanks can woo him back to NY.
For those interested in this story, I urge you to head over to the The Journal News and check out the article. It's the very latest stuff on Pettitte, and the first article I've seen on the subject in almost 3 weeks.
And give me some feedback here, do you want Pettitte to return to the Yanks? How long should the contract be? Will a deal be reached? I want to hear from you guys...
