Note: Andy Pettitte's Option

Yesterday, while speaking with KRIV-TV in Houston, free-agent LHP Andy Pettitte said he will most likely either pitch for the Yankees in 2008, or he will retire.

Pettitte has until November 8 to decide whether he will exercise his $16 million player option for next season.

…it’s a lot of money, but he left houston for the Yankees specifically to play for Joe Torre, who is no longer on the team, while pitching alongside his old buddies, like Jorge Posada, Mariano Rivera and Roger Clemens, all of whom are free agents

In his last 72 games, spanning starts for the Astros and Yankees, Pettitte is 29–22 with a 4.13 ERA.

what’s weird is that he allowed exactly 238 hits in each of the last two seasons, while throwing just one more inning this past season compared to the one before…strange

…at any rate, he’s talked of honor to the Yankees and retiring before, and so i still bet he ends up pitching again, either in the Bronx or in los angeles with Joe Torre, Don Mattingly and whomever else heads out that way
