Andy Pettitte and Brian Cashman didn’t play games this offseason. Andy Pettitte- New York ICON- has been rumored to have signed a one year deal worth $11.75 million dollars guaranteed. This time there was no haggling, fake retirements, dissing Andy, or performance bonuses- Andy gets the flat rate, and normal playoffs/World Series bonuses if the 2010 Yankees make it again.
The 2010 New York Yankees starting rotation is now CC Sabathia, Andy Pettitte, A.J. Burnett, Joba Chamberlain, and Phil Hughes, unless the Yankees go after Roy Halladay or John Lackey. Rumor mill has John Lackey going to the New York Mets, which would be a match made in heaven.
By the way, the Curtis Granderson trade is official. The Andy Pettitte deal has not been officially announced as yet.
This is a great move as Andy Pettitte shut his critics up this October, and no one can take 2009 away from him. He very well may have pitched his way into the Hall of Fame this season. This Yankees October showed how reliable he is, and how came through in the clutch against tough competition; he didn’t choke like his opponents did.
