    The contract Pettitte signed - is it guaranteed money?

    I'm pretty sure it's a minor league contract and he has to make the team for it to be guaranteed

    Once Pettitte let Cashman know that he had kept throwing in the winter, it became about negotiating pay. 2.5m not guaranteed, no incentives.

    He's clearly not in it for the money, because he could have probably worked out a better deal (at least incentive wise) had he signed earlier.

    I don't like the idea of him potentially taking a spot away from one of the five guys in AAA while he tunes up, but I do think it could be valuable for the guys down there to see his work ethic.

    No one forced him to retire. Yankees would have re-signed him and he would have got his ring in 2009.

    I always felt bad about Mattingly missing out on the WS.

    Really hope that he is not just awarded a rotation spot regardless of his results. Heard he's going to be pitching some games in Trenton since Scranton doesn't have a home base this year.

    Woo hoo! I am going to get season tickets this year for the Thunder (since I dropped my Yankees season tickets) so I'm psyched I'll get to see him there!

    Cool. Maybe I'll get to see him pitch a little bit against the Sea Dogs here in Portland.

    Pettitte threw a scoreless inning in his first game since ending a one-year retirement and the New York Yankees beat the New York Mets 8-3 on Wednesday.
    "It felt good to be able to get out there and get the inning in, especially in a big league game" Pettitte said. "It definitely felt a little weird, there's no doubt about it. Once I got out there, it was just like you never left. It was fun."
    Many of the announced crowd of 10,813 at Steinbrenner Field gave Pettitte a standing ovation when he took the mound to start the sixth. The left-hander allowed one baserunner, coming on Cory Vaughn's leadoff single to right.

    Pitched today for High A Tampa.

    4IP 2H OR 3SO

    Josh Norris@jnorris427
    Scout at the game: Pettitte's at 87-89, good command and movement to both sides. SL better than CB. Change is OK. Looks ready. #Yankees

    Same scout: Pettitte looks ready, but just needs to be stretched out. #Yankees.

    Except for one start he was mainly in the low 90's

    40 pitchers, ever, have an ERA+ of 130 or higher for their career. 15 have 140 or higher. 3 guys have 150 or higher - one is right at 150, the second place guy is at 154, and Mariano Rivera is at 205.

    Got all pumped up to learn that Pettitte's pitching for Trenton here in Portland Monday night, until I realized I have a late appointment and will be unable to go. Would love to see him throw in the cozy confines of Hadlock Stadium, but will be excited for great results nonetheless. Good luck, Andy. We need ya!

    Dang, I bet it's cold at those games. I hope Andy's fingers don't freeze.
