Andy Pettitte signed a one-year deal with the Yanks, worth $12 MM. Great to have him back, but you do worry about the age.
But now the Yanks’ 2013 rotation seems set. CC, Kuroda, Pettitte, Hughes and Nova/Phelps fighting it out for the #5 spot. Pineda could be in the mix come midseason.
The concern is Kuroda’s (38) and Pettitte’s (41 in June) age.
The HOF ballot this year should be interesting. Many worthy candidates, and a few suspected steroid cheats, including three who are the all-time HR leader, a 354 game winner and a 600+ HR man.
Here is a link to players being considered (see my previous post endorsing Jacob Ruppert for the HOF).
