Numerous reports, all of them relying on the same Post article, contend that Brian Cashman left the Winter Meetings today bound for Andy Pettitte’s home. According to the reports, the Yanks feel confident enough in their efforts at landing A.J. Burnett that Cashman is going to issue a “take it or leave it” ultimatum to Andy Pettitte. The Yanks will play Pettitte $10 million to take the fifth spot in the rotation or they will move to some combination of Derek Lowe, Ben Sheets and Phil Hughes. While we can’t be sure of the veracity of this report, I think it’s a perfectly reasonable move to make at this stage in the winter.
