Buster Olney thinks Andy Pettitte is a good fit for the 2010 YankeesBy
On the heels of his gritty and gutty and playing the game the right wayeyey performance in Game Six of the World Series, Buster Olney thinks it’s a lock that the Yankees will offer Andy Pettitte arbitration this offseason. Pettitte’s base salary was just $5.5M in 2009, but he took home over $10M thanks to incentives, so that’s what a potential arbitration case will be based on.
Pettitte projects as a Type-B free agent, but he may creep up into Type-A status when the official rankings come out because he’s right at the cutoff. I thought the Yanks should offer Andy arbitration last year (they didn’t), and I definitely think they should do so again this year.
