Yankees willing to give Pettitte raise to $12-to-13 mil. What’s taking him so long? Does he want more $? Is he an MLB Favre?
The way you could read this is that the Yankees want Andy Pettitte back. They’re willing to give him a raise, but they don’t want to shoot themselves in the foot and tell Pettitte that they’re willing to give him $16 million if he’ll settle for $13 million. Realistically though, they’ll give him whatever he wants to come back. To me $16 to $18 million is not out of the question.
