It’s possible that the Yankees might add two big names whose stardom began in the Clinton Administration, both named “Andy”: Andy Pettitte and Andruw Jones.
We say “add” with Pettitte, because at this point it looks likely that he’ll retire. According to a recent ESPN report, Pettitte might be hesitant to return because he’s anxious about the media firestorm that would ensue if he’s called to testify in Roger Clemens’ July perjury trial.
As for Jones, he wasn’t terrible last year, and he might provide some righty outfield production to complement lefties Curtis Granderson and Brett Gardner.
The Yanks have also been linked to Jeff Francis, Jeremy Bonderman, and Justin Duchscherer, and Bartolo Colon. It’s likely that the Yankees will take a flyer or two.
In terms of bigger fish, a trade for Fausto Carmona is a possibility, as is signing Rafael Soriano.
