    How great would it be to have Pettitte Back....

    Just read this in the JOhn Donovan article in SI. I for one would love to have him back....any thoughts...


    Purpura has let it be known that there aren't many untouchables on his roster, though he's certainly hamstrung by some contracts. Craig Biggio and Jeff Bagwell, as 10-year veterans who have five years with the Astros, can't be traded without their consent. Pitcher Andy Pettitte and slugger Lance Berkman have no-trade provisions.

    Still, the Astros have to do something because they face a budget crunch. The team is on the hook for some $75 million to $80 million for 12 players -- not counting Clemens.

    I don't think he's allowed to come back to New York.

    If Andy is available, GET HIM!!!!! I'd lopve to have him back - an effective LHP, a bulldog, the best lefty pickoff move in baseball, and a good attitude. What more could you want?

    Not that it's likely to happen, but what would you give the Astros to entice them to send Andy back to us? Does it start with Pavano? Would the Yankees put Jorge in the deal and then try to sign Ausmus? Would Houston have any use for Womack? Proctor?

    his wife won't let him come back. Remember when it came out in Page Six that he was cheating on his wife with some girl in NY and that was the reason his wife told him he had to head home to Houston.
    lets put the frauds in boston back in their place

    Yea I remember reading somewhere that was true. He wanted to go play with his family so why would he want to come back and after what happened why would we want him back. He really broke my heart when he left and I won't be forgiving that anytime soon.

    Agreed,

    In all seriousness he is the type of guy made for a playoff team because he is tough as nails to hit against.

    If not him though what about trying to pry Lidge?....

    From the same article...

    One player Purpura didn't mention as an untouchable: Closer Brad Lidge. Purpura declined to answer whether any of the closer-needy teams in the league have asked about Lidge. But he did say "[Lidge] would be an obvious choice" among teams interested in talking about trading for a closer ...

    Imagine lidge in the seventh as a bridge for MAriano then have him take over in the next few years...

    Considering what it would cost us, no, no I would not.

    The Yankees do NOT want Brad Ausmus and his .250 batting average
    Ausmus is way overhyped

    Oh good. It's been at least a month since we had a "Pettitte's overrated/he chose to leave" vs. "he's a winner/we screwed up by not re-signing him" debate.

    How about Biggio for center for one year. He's not too expensive and could be a good stop gap for a few years for melky or for one year for the center FA next year...

    not sure his contract, but i bet it would not take too much to get him....he's always productive

    It's too late for the Yanks front-office to recover its worst fumble of the 21st Century.

    As dandy as it would be to see Andy back where he belongs, I think our only chance to watch Pettitte pitch in pinstripes again is on "Yankee Classics."

    The idea was to look into him if Jorge had to be included in a deal. He is a very good defensive catcher, and .250 isn't bad.

    Most likely you're right, but wouldn't it be wonderful if we could bring him back?

    Uh, he wouldn't cost anything except money at the end of the 2006 season, since he'll be a free agent.........

    Worst fumble of the 21st Century? Why?

    Pettite barely pitched in 2004 and he had a 4.26 ERA in this years postseason.

    Yeah, and just imagine Beltran playing CF behind him

    Since Pettitte left, several of his "replacements" have also spent months on the DL (Brown, Pavano, Wright, to name a few).

    Do I have to remind you what his "replacement" Javy Vazquez did for us in October of '04? Or what Brown did for the Yanks in '04?

    He was 17-9 last season with a 2.39 ERA last season.

    His postseason ERA with the Yanks was 4.05 (compared to 4.26 in this year's postseason) -- and he won 4 World Championships.

    They should not have let him go. Terrible fumble in my opinion.

    They tried to keep him. Laura Pettitte wanted him out of NY

    Re: How great would it be to have Pettitte Back....

    Why are we even rehashing this subject?

    Pettitte is gone. Deal with it. He has a no trade clause, and is not a free agent. End of discussion.
