Let’s hope Jon Heyman isn’t teasing us with this update. He says that Andy Pettitte has told teammates that he’d like to come back for another year. Given the old saying that you can never have enough starting pitching, the Yanks should be amicable to a reunion. That gives the Yankees some depth and flexibility, allowing them to set their starting five right away (CC, Burnett, Pettitte, Hughes, Chamberlain). They can then attempt to bring back Chien-Ming Wang, knowing that by July there will likely be a rotation opening. There were questions about bringing back Pettitte after last season, but after 2009 I think it’s a pretty easy decision. Bring back Pettitte.
