    I had him on my fantasy team this year and always liked him, even when he was a Yankee. Not to talk about him like he's dead but he always carried himself well and seemed to have great respect for the game. I wish him the best of luck in his recovery and rehab.

    That's too bad. He's a good guy and deserve's better. Hopefully he can get healthy and pitch well again.

    Does this mean Roger is going to have surgery too?



    Get well Pettitte.

    The Astros owe him $8.5 million next year and $17.5 million (gulp) in 2006. They are in BIG trouble.

    Looks like the yankees knew what they were doing. And I am positive that he did not "injure" it batting, he has had elbow problems before.

    In any event get well soon Andy!!!!

    Roger will be with you every step of the way

    Ugh, I feel bad for Andy. I didn't like it when the Yankees let him enter his walk year without a contract opening the door for Houston, but Andy made the choice to leave. McLane and Hunsicker must be freaking out and I'm not feeling sorry for them at all.

    Wrong forum.

    And yes, they knew something was wrong since 2002 when he spent 2 months on the DL with elbow problems. That IS WHY they didn't want to seriously commit years and money to him this offseason, and it is why they didn't fight Houston that badly to retain him (especially when they knew they'd have to outbid them BIGTIME in order for him to not go hom). They deemed the risk not worth it, and they were right.

    I'm sure he'll be fine for those two years. The surgery should fix it, right?

    First Key, now Pettitte. Kudos to the predictive ability of the Yankees' doctors, and best wishes to Andy.

    Cashman is smarter than most people give him credit for -- even Gammons says this.

    Well, maybe. I would guess he'd suffer some residual arm-strength issues next year, and by 2006 well, a mid-market team like Houston can't be paying the Andy Pettittes of this world $17.5 million, even if he's 100%. It's a crushing burden on their payroll.

    He is, but this was a medical decision.

    Many of us here knew it - if they hadn't figured out themselves I'm sure the yanks heard the buzz on nyyfans.com.
