Pettitte Will Pitch in 2010

According to Buster Olney of ESPN, despite the news of a rejected offer this morning Andy Pettitte has decided that he will definitely be pitching in 2010 and that his preference remains, as always, except in 2003, to pitch with the Yankees.

Pettitte and the Yankees took quite some time coming to an agreement on an offer last winter finally settling on a one-year deal with a base salary of $5.5 million plus incentives. He eventually earned $10.5 million. Apparently he doesn’t want to take a pay cut as this mornings news was that he rejected a one-year $10 million offer.

Hopefully the two sides can come to an agreement quickly before the Yankees start sizing up John Lackey. I wonder if $10.5 is enough to get it done.
