Yankees closing in on Andy?, per Tom Verducci



QUOTE
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- The Yankees' search for a starting pitcher that will keep them from having to bank on a healthy Carl Pavano and Randy Johnson is narrowing. As Vicente Padilla came off the free-agent board, Ted Lilly and Barry Zito get little more than cursory interest from New York and Jason Schmidt still doesn't see East Coast dollars to override his West Coast preference, the Yankees have found the ideal solution: Andy Pettitte.


The free-agent left-hander, who is strongly considering retirement, is said to be intrigued with the idea of returning to pinstripes and "could possibly have a deal by the end of the week" with New York, according to a baseball source familiar with the negotiations.

You sure did.. albeit within nano-seconds. :-D

Doesn't matter, though. Some potentially very good news. Deserves two threads. smile

How many years do you think 1 with a option for 2

Yes, 1 year, with an option for 2 and that option will be tied to incentives. He is just the deal they're looking for, as they don't want to tie up a spot for 5-6 years, when they have great prospects they hope will be coming up in latter 2007 and definitely 2008.

I hope this deal gets done.

I am not a huge fan of the deal, but he does add pitching depth.
