  • Pettite 2013

    Andy has talked about returning in 2013.

    http://riveraveblues.com/2012/08/and...nd-2013-74514/

    How great would it be to see him, Mo & Jeter give it one last year and then walk away together. Preferably as champs.

      Jeter will most likely exercise his player option.

        I'm so happy you've come around to my views, NJYankeeFan. Glad you realize Pettitte still has some gas left in the tank.

          I think NJ meant last time for all three together. Jeter ain't going nowhere for at least 5 more years. We've got a gambler to catch!

            If Jeter keeps on playing solely to catch Rose, I will lose a lot respect for him.

              There is no way he is catching Rose. But if he keeps having seasons like this, he can certainly play for a few more seasons as a key contributor.

              Although one of my favorite Yankees, I wasn't excited about Pettite coming back this season. I wish when players retired, they stayed that way. That being said, with his great performance until he got hurt, if he can keep it up, I would be more than happy to see him return next season.

                Pettitte was great for those few starts.

                You can't point on him but if you have depth then he is a nice additional piece.

                And i did mean one more year for Jeter. He is hitting great now but would much rather see him go out like this. Than the way Rose did.

                If any of those 3 could play for five more years, I think we all know it is Mo. But i don't want to see him go out meekly either.

                And i do not think Jeter will exercise his option. Too much of a paycut.

                  Too much of a paycut? Perhaps, but not exercising it and retiring is an even bigger paycut. You seriously think Jeter only wants one more year? He wanted a 5 year deal last time.

                    I do not think his ego lets him take a paycut.

                    That's why the contract was designed that way.

                    If it was the Yanks option they are the bad guy for kicking Saint Derek to the curb. If Jeter declines and demands more pay? Then Captain Ego is the bad guy in the tabloids. Just like A-Rod.

                    Now if he plays the way he has the last month then I would be willing to discuss more $$ on a one year deal.

                      I don't know. He was part of that decision to put the player option in there. We'll see.

                        Here we all thought Jeter was done. Give him a few more years, I doubt he'll actually catch Rose, but he might go past the 4000 mark. He keps playing at this level and he may even catch Anson and Cobb.

                        I don't think this is the first time Pettitte was thinking of a return. I seem to recall him pulling one of those unretirements that seem to be getting so popular. I've long been a Pettitte fan, but if he keeps it up, he's going to start looking like Roger Clemens or Brett Favre.

                          Pettitte to return to what? The Disabled List? Too old, too injury prone. He should stay home and play catch with his pal rocket boy.
                          Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen,and welcome to Yankee Stadium. Here are the lineups for todays game...

                            I hope they both come back.

                              With a combined age of 90?!? Yeah, thats what the Yanks need. Heres an analogy. In 1980, Muhammad Ali, age 38, came back to fight Larry Holmes. Larry was younger, faster and stronger. The four guys sitting in front of me at the closed-circuit viewing were saying things like "Ali's gonna win, he's still got it, Holmes is nothin', yeah you don't havta convince me". Ali took a terrible beating that night, and those guys were real quiet throughout the fight. Andy may have been good for half a season at age 40, but you're kidding yourself if you think he could have kept it up for an entire year. And roger at 50?? Forget it. I'm more than happy to see my old favorites at Old-Timers Day. Bring in the young guys!
