Andy to the Rescue??
4 time World Series champion Andy Pettite has filed for free agency.
Pettite is saying publicly that he is not sure what he wants to do and wants to spend time with his family. Some say that means he may retire.
Those with the MLB decoder ring (such as myself) really knows what that means: I want to play, but I'm catching heat from the spouse, so make sure my next pay day is big - as in Yankee BIG.
Look for the Yanks to sign AP to a big money deal, 1 year with a 1 year option. When its all said and done the starting Ro could look like: Wang, Pettite, Pavano, Karstens, and Hughes (you may recall that this site made the correct prediction that RJ was done - and, he is).
Other news items: Cool story in the latest Esquire magazine titled "The Death of Derek Jeter". How about Faith Hill showing some edge at the announcement of her defeat to a reality TV singer? Look for the NY Football Giants, without Strahan, to be-otch slap the Bears to their 2nd straight defeat. 20 - is the over/under for the number of days, sore losing politicians will cry that the election in their district is fixed and demand recount, voter fraud, the usual BS.
