MLB Rumors: Will Andy Pettitte Pull a Roger Clemens?
MLB Rumors: Andy Pettitte still can't make up his mind. And to me, that means he's made up his mind.
Waffling all offseason on whether or not to return for a 14th season in pinstripes, the latest word from his camp is that while he's working out at home, the Yanks still shouldn't count on him this year. The Yankees have responded by reportedly offering Pettitte $12 million to toe the rubber for them once more, a slight increase from his $11.75 million salary of 2010.
The longer this goes, the more that means that Pettitte will borrow from the playbook of his fellow Texan, close friend, and former teammate Roger Clemens, who returned mid-season in both 2006 and 2007 and contributed down the stretch. It works for all parties involved, really. Pettitte gets more time at home with his family, and gets to be fresher when he comes back in the summer, with less chance of breaking down due to wear and tear. The Yankees get to save some money, and get a mid-season acquisition that's better than any trade they could otherwise hope to pull off.
Pettitte's not the only player in the news this offseason. Here's B/R's list of 20 players to watch for the upcoming season.
