Yankees expecting [Andy Pettitte] to decide within days whether he’ll return for 17th season. Cautiously optimistic.
It’s good to hear that the Yankees are cautiously optimistic because there are whispers that Pettitte is less likely to come back since Cliff Lee isn’t coming to the Bronx. That may just be a ploy to get a few extra million tacked on to his contract.
Hopefully the Yankees won’t just accept a no answer without trying to show him the money first. They will be screwed without him.
