Pettitte agrees to return

Andy Pettitte and the Yankees have agreed on a one year $11.75 million deal that will bring the veteran back for the 2010 season. Could this deal be any more expected? Most people knew it was just a matter of time before they reached a deal, at least it wasn’t dragged out like last season. Anyway, I’m glad he’s back, and he’s another issue out of the way. While I do feel 11.75 million is a bit too much for him, there is no way he would have settled for less, especially when the Cardinals way overpayed Brad Penny by giving him a 7.5 million deal that can be worth 9 million with incentives, I am forgetting who Brad Penny is? Oh, well. Welcome back Andy.

  1. Okay even fourth or fifth starter now makes 7.5 million minimum!!! Will the Yankees get rid of Wang and nontendered him and save about what 5.5 million in arbitration?

  2. Thanks Chris!!! But some Yankees fans are getting impatient with the development of Joba Chamberlain and Phil Hughes as starting pitchers and want to get Roy Halladay!!! I am not in that camp yet!!! I want to see two to three years before I decide on that!!! My preference is to get John Lackey because we can’t relied again on three starters again in the postseason next season if we get there with the postseason tv schedule tightens up!!

    • At this point they aren’t set to rely on three pitchers in the postseason if they make it again. They will use CC, Andy, AJ, and either Hughes or Joba. I know people are getting impatient with Hughes and Joba, but its silly. Young pitchers take a long time to develop, give them time.

  3. I know Chris!!! These people want Tim Lincecum and have success early or Doc Gooden success at the beginning!!! But most great pitchers take time such as Tom Glavine, Greg Maddux or John Smoltz to name a few!!
