Andy Pettitte to Sign Inexplicable Contract?
So why hasn't he signed the Yankees one-year offer of $10 million yet? Well, his agent is floating rumors that he's been offered a three year contract worth $36 million from someone. The team hasn't been revealed, so we can't be totally sure this is true. I highly doubt someone would break the bank like this, considering all the circumstances.
We do know the Red Sox and Dodgers have both expressed interest, albeit lukewarm at best. The Dodgers would be a nice home for Pettitte, as it's a pitcher's park in a light-hitting division. Plus, he'd be reunited with Joe Torre. Still, I'd be shocked if they ponied up three years at this price tag for Pettitte, especially considering their reluctance to give more years to Manny Ramirez.
