Thoughts on Pettitte, Carl, Michael Young and other things.

So Andy Pettitte is insulted that the Yankees offered him ten million dollars to play baseball for a year.

I would love to be insulted like that.

I guess I can understand not wanting to get a pay cut. But what’s going on now really kicks the whole idea how Andy would only pitch for the Yankees in 09 square in the nuts.

It would be different if he didn’t finish the year so poorly. But he did. And I think the organization feels like Andy’s not disclosing that he was in the Mitchell Report was a slap in the face.

So it looks like Andy is going to stick to his guns, pitch for another team for less money.

That’s a pretty bad way to go out, Andy.



“When you’re down, you expect your organization to pick you up, not kick you when you’re down. I’ve had to pick myself up quite a few times the last four years.”

Carl Pavano


So Carl couldn’t just be happy with getting a contract with the Indians, he had to complain about how the Yankee orginization never really supported him during the four years he was paid by the Yankees to sit on the disabled list.

He made forty million dollars and pitched in twenty six games.

Carl, you made your money. What else did you want?



Michael Young wants out of Texas. Seems he doesn’t want to play third base.

I’m sure there will be all kinds of rumors linking him to the Yankees…..And the Red Sox….And any other team.


Should be interesting to watch.



So if the Yankees trade Nady, who do they get to fill his spot?  Swisher can play outfield, but I would feel better having Abreu in right field over Swisher….Balls over his head and all.

We’ll see what happens, but I’d like to see them get on major league ready outfielder in any deal.


I know I’m probably violating some Yankee fan bi law by saying this, but I was glad to hear that Jim Rice made it into the HOF along with Ricky Henderson.


Anyway, take care all.
