Andy Pettitte Could Be Back in Pinstripes by the End of the Week
By mvyb, 06.12.2006, 10:32

Just following up on my previous post here.
.
I was scanning through this mornings headlines and came across this article in the New York Post.
.
With the winter meetings buzzing about a report that Andy Pettitte could be a Yankee by the end of the week, Phil Garner said the likelihood of Pettitte pitching another year exists.

"He indicated to me that maybe he would pitch again," the Astros manager told The Post in the lobby of the Dolphin Hotel.

Asked if Pettitte told him if it would be for the Yankees or Astros, Garner shrugged. Informed the Yankees, who have let Pettitte know they are willing to pay him $15 million for one year, are waiting on Pettitte's decision and would welcome him back to The Bronx, Garner said, "They would be crazy not to want him."

.
The Post also got some good stuff out of Hendriks, Pettitte's agent.
.
Agent Randy Hendricks said yesterday that Pettitte's deadline for deciding is Dec. 22.

"Andy has yet to tell me he has decided to play, but the trend line is toward playing," said Hendricks, who added the Astros and Yankees have shown a lot of interest in the left-hander.

The Astros, who spent heavily on outfielder Carlos Lee, believe Pettitte is looking for close to $15 million to pitch the 2007 season. According to an Astros source, that's too much for them. Another predicted Pettitte would be a Yankee for $15.5 million and a one-year deal. The Astros have informed Hendricks that if they can acquire a starter through a deal, then Pettitte wouldn't fit.

"The Astros told me that if they make a trade Andy is out," Hendricks said.

.
I really believe that the only team that could stop Andy from re-joining the Yankees are the Astros, but now it sounds like they are losing interest. They aren't willing to pay the money (which they Yankees are willing to), and may not even have a place for Pettitte on their team. Yeehaw!
.

According to Hendricks, Pettitte thought about sitting out the 2007 season but not officially retiring. However, he didn't think about sitting out the first half of the season ala Roger Clemens a year ago.

"We talked about that," Hendricks said of Pettitte not pitching this season and returning in 2008. "As for the half-year thing, he laughed at me when I said that."

.
