Yankees close to re-signing Pettitte on a 1-year, $11 million deal 4


It looks like workouts went well for Andy Pettitte because Buster Olney of ESPN has reported that he and the Yankees are close to finishing a one-year $11 million deal.

This is great news for the Yankees, who will not only have their pitching rotation returning next season, but get it in place in time for the Winter Meetings next week so they can now focus on other aspects of their roster heading forward without worrying about the rotation or their budget concerns.

    While I love seeing Andy and Mo back, my biggest concern is of a team getting too old. Jeter (39 next June), A-Rod (38 next July), possibly Ichiro (39), Ibanez (41 next June), Kuroda (38 next spring), Ibanez (41 next June), Chavez 35, Mo (43), Pettitte (41 next June). …. and if they all hit the wall at the same time? It's nice seeing a bunch of legends play, but you can't make every game an "old timer's game". At what point does a team become too old?
