Via the AP –
Andy Pettitte and the New York Yankees agreed Monday to a $5.5 million, one-year contract that brings the left-hander back to New York.
Pettitte can make an additional $6.5 million on performance bonuses and bonuses based on time on the active roster.
“There was never another team brought up,” Pettitte said during a conference call. “I wanted to come back to the Yankees.”
Didn’t I say, if the Yankees offered Pettitte somewhere around $12 to $13 million, this would get done?
Looks like $12 million was the magic number.
A rotation of Sabathia, Wang, Pettitte, Burnett and Chamberlain. Now, that’s pretty darn impressive. No excuses this year, huh?
