Pettite is pitching for sure in 2010, but the Yankees had better up their offer

Dec 7, 2009, 8:00 AM EDT

Buster Olney is reporting that Andy Pettitte is done dithering and will pitch in 2010.  Joel Sherman of the New York Post is reporting, however, that he has rejected the Yankees’ first offer, which was one year and $10 million. That seems like a raise for Pettitte, but that’s about what he made last year with incentives and everything.

If what everyone says is true, Pettitte only wants to pitch for the Yankees, so assuming this gets done, it will probably get done for only slightly more than that.

    This is an early song-and-dance for Andy, probably orchestrated by Cashman, to lull Epstein into thinking the Universe isn’t going to get too hot and heavy over Lackey (and/or Halladay). Then the shoe will drop, if not now, soon, and with incredible force.
    Please include photos (not of Boras at the pool) from beautiful downtown Indianapolis! Your first official “road trip”, Craig. Remember, the weasels just got sold to the other weasels and will be checking on excessive trips to the mini-bar.

    So, Andy rejected the first offer. Sounds like something I’ve heard before.

    Of course he rejected the first off. That’s the song and dance.
    nothing to see here folks. He’ll sign for a mill or so more after spending all of the 2008 offseason saying it wasn’t about the money…
