Andy Pettitte

It's hard to see him ending up anywhere but NYY, but he has apparently rejected a 1 year, $10m offer from them.

Andy Pettitte may not be returning to the New York Yankees after all.

The left-handed starter has rejected the Yankees' one-year, $10 million offer, The New York Times reported, citing a person with knowledge of the negotiations.

The door does not appear closed on Pettitte returning to New York. The New York Daily News reported that according to a person close to the situation, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman has "had dialogue" in recent days with Pettitte's agents, Randy and Alan Hendricks.

"Andy's a free agent, and the one thing I've been consistent in saying is that we'd like to have Andy back," Cashman said last month, according to the Daily News. "I know he'd like to come back. That's set up for maybe a positive end result. It doesn't guarantee it."

Does he actually think he will get more from anyone else?

I guess i just don't understand what the logic behind rejecting the offer is, take 10 mil and pitch in New Yankee stadium with a very solid looking team!

I like Andy Pettitte, but I think $10 million is more than generous. If he wants more than it is time to move on.

I would rather have the Yankees kick in a couple of extra bucks ( of course milions seem like mere bucks for the Yankees) and go after Sheets. I think he is worth the risk.

Heck for a man who admitted cheating, he should be grateful he's even in a position to play for $10 million :-t

I agree. If Pettitte isn't going to take this deal, I'd rather the Yankees move on and go for someone else who can be at least as good as Pettitte, probably even better. I still think odds are Pettitte comes back, but giving him more than $10 million is just a bad baseball move. He's probably only worth $6-$8. I don't know why he thinks he can get $16.
