Just when I think I’m out, they pull me back in …
Andy Pettitte told a Houston television station that he wants to return to the Yankees in 2009. “I’d like to play again,” he said. “My thoughts are there.”
This comes as no surprise, as Pettitte said much the same during the season. Given that Joe Girardi has already said he wants Pettitte back, it’s just a matter of time before the Yankees make a deal with the big lefty. Girardi would never have said that without knowing that’s what Cashman thinks.
The only problem would be if Mike Mussina decided he wanted to play, then the Yankees might have a decision to make. But the Moose won’t do that.
So now the rotation is CMW, Jobamania and Pettitte. Two spots to go.
