I knew something was up.
Brian Cashman, according to the Post, flew to Texas to meet with Andy Pettitte in Houston. The well-traveled GM is probably arriving with an ultimatum.
In essence: take it or leave it. The Yankees would be pleased to have Pettitte back as one of their starters. But not for anything close to the $16 million he made last season.
The Yankees, at the moment, have Sabathia, Wang and Chamberlain in the rotation with A.J. Burnett probably on the way. The Yankees could go out and get Ben Sheets for two years or fill the spot from within.
Andy has enough left to land with another team. But he wants little to do with living or playing anywhere else. After everything that went down last year, Pettitte needs to show the Yankees some love.
