Pinstriped Pettitte Part Deux
Friday, December 08, 2006
pettitte yanks
After spending 3 seasons in his hometown of Houston, fan favorite Andy Pettitte will be back in the Bronx in 2007 in hopes of winning a 5th World Series ring with the Yanks. Andy and the Yanks apparently came to terms today on a deal that will bring Andy $16 million for the 2007 season with a player option (also for $16 mil) for the 2008 season should he decide to continue playing.

The addition of A.P. to the Yanks' rotation will bring a sigh of relief to many of us fans who have been wondering how the team would get by with just Wang and Mussina marked down as sure things for 2007. The Unit and Pavano are both on the docket, but their respective injuries (RJ underwent back surgery after the ALDS and may not be ready in time for opening day and Pavano is...Pavano) leave the Yankees Chick somewhat skeptical of either one's reliability. The Yanks are expected to sign Kei Igawa - they have until December 28th to do so - and may even have Scott Proctor prepare for starting pitching duties just in case. They also have several youngsters - Humberto Sanchez of the Sheffield trade; Darrell Rasner and Jeff Karstens; whom we saw a bit of last year, and of course prospect extraordinaire Phillip Hughes, who could be called up at some point - who will compete for a starting job during spring training.

pettitte and clemensThe ink isn't even dry on Andy's contract yet, but there are already rumblings of rumors involving a Roger Clemens return to New York. The Rocket has not even confirmed that he will be pitching next year, but at 44 he continues to prove himself as an indisputable future hall of famer every year and I see no reason for him to hang it up while he is clearly still so dominating. Rog and A.P. have been known to make joint decisions in the past, so it is entirely feasible that Andy's return to the Bronx could have an influence on the Rocket's decision. I will keep my fingers - and perhaps a toe or two - crossed...

    FYI, Bonds actually hasn't been signed. Sorry, but MLB.com hasn't reported it.

    Let's hope Pavano doesn't Pavano himself on the way out of town when he gets traded
