Andy Pettitte said he would play for the Yankees or retire in 2008. Given what a good season he had, I would bet he comes back.

The Mets could have an interest in Alex Rodriguez and will ask David Wright what he thinks. Brian Heyman has that story.

I think a lot of this A-Rod stuff is a smokescreen, both on the part of teams and the player. People will use the situation for their own benefit. GMs will try and make it look like they’re doing their jobs and Boras will welcome all comers to the auction.

Now the latest spin out of Newport Beach is that Alex loves the Yankees and simply became a free agent “just like Posada and Rivera.”

Right, except that when asked to meet with the team and talk it over, Mariano Rivera showed up at Legends Field. Or when asked to meet with the team and talk it over, Jorge Posada told his people to meet with the Yankees next week.


Meanwhile, the Yankees have a 1 p.m. press conference at the Stadium today for Joe Girardi. I’ll be back later with the audio from that and whatever other news comes out.
