It's not TJ so he'll be back next year most likely.

But think back, the Yankees wouldn't re-sign him and many including me bashed them for not re-signing a cog in their rotation. Could the Yanks have suspected anything or had this kind of foresight? No. Well? Maybe... Who knows, all that matters is that the Yankees didn't make such a dreadful move after all even though hindsight is 20/20.

Big blow for houston though as this could have lingering effects into next season.

Not that it matters for Houston, this team was designed to win this year, yet they are out of it... no hope for the near future.

Many people in baseball believed that Pettitte had some kind of elbow problems years before the Yankees let him go.

The Astros just didn't do their due diligence when it came to signing Pettitte. Luckily, it also netted them Clemens, otherwise that signing would have been a total disaster.
