Andy Pettitte is returning to the Yanks according to the AP. He's taking a huge pay cut, but one wonders if Joe Torre's explosive jeremiad against the Yanks, A-Rod, the Bronx, the fans, my family, your family, everyone's family, and your momma, gave the big lefty ideas about a way to make up for the financial loss. Is Andy's own best-selling tell all now in the making? If I were his agent, I'd recommend he carry around a recorder and notebook and hang out with A-Rod in 2009.
Meanwhile, what the hell is happening to the free agent market? If the article is accurate, Pettitte is only guaranteed to make $5.5 million, with incentives raising his salary another $6.5 million. Seems like a nice deal for the Yanks.
