Yankees southpaw Andy Pettitte will reportedly decide if he’ll continue his playing career by the end of next feel, according to CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman:



friend of andy pettitte says he expects pettitte to decide on '13 by the end of next week. #yankees

Pettitte, 40, went 5-4 with a 2.87 ERA in 12 starts for the Yankees last season. He was sidelined for more than two months with a fractured ankle after a ground ball struck it in June.

Pettitte was drafted by the Yankees in the first round of the 1990 draft. He has spent the majority of his 17-year career with the team and is the MLB’s all-time leader in postseason wins (19). After months of speculation, Pettitte announced his retirement in February 2011. He returned as a guest instructor for the Yankees during spring training in 2012 and then signed a minor league contract with the team worth $2.5 million.

He's old, and has had a nice career.

If he wants to continue with the Yanks, I wish him well.

This. he's slowly becoming the brett favre of baseball. Still wants to play, wants everyone to care about him doesn't wanna do the whole training camp thing still wants to get paid. Come back be the 3-5th starter and maybe not get injured and help during a playoff run and call it a season. Who cares lol.

Guys like Pettite drive me nuts. Retire or remain in the game for **** sakes. Just make up your mind. Maybe he hangs out with Clemens,Jordan and Favre too much.

I don't see him not coming back.

He still pitches very well for his age.

I don't think Pettitte is milking this at all, and nothing like Favre.

He is just deciding if he wants to pitch another year or not. He has that right, and he is taking an appropriate amount of time to decide that.

Drama Queen! Same nonsense every year from him - make a (early) decision and shut up about it.

All this repeated drama takes away from his outstanding career.

When healthy, he was still the Andy Pettitte of old last year. If he comes back again, the Yankees have to be the AL East favorites considering what that rotation did for them last year. All they need now is some new hitters.

Being the favorites in the AL East isn't saying much with how deep the division is. But yeah, they are probably still considered slight favorites.

He should just retire. He's already won a few WSs, he's most likely a Hall of Famer, what has he left to prove?

agree. :clap: trade Granderson and put some young players in the outfield who can not just strikeout then hits homeruns. they need people on base and hitters and a new 3rd basemen arod dh.

He doesn't necessarily have anything left to prove, he just loves the game.

All-time greats with connections to PEDs are likely going to be on the outside of the HOF looking in for the foreseeable future. A guy whose career was already on the fringe at best as far as the Hall is concerned and admitted to PED use isn't going to have any easier of a time making it in.

I'd be shocked if he didn't come back. A guy who obviously missed the game enough after 1 year probably didn't get enough baseball after only throwing about 90 innings last season. I honestly think Andy and Mo will go out together, with this being their last years.

1 year $10M is my guess.

That definitely seems fitting. 1 year at 10 million seems fair for both sides.
