Kepner: Pettitte rejects Yankees' offer

According to Tyler Kepner of The New York Times, Andy Pettitte's return to the Yankees is uncertain.

Pettitte has rejected the Yankees’ one-year, $10 million offer, according to a person with knowledge of the negotiations, and there is no standing offer for now.

Pettitte could return because some in the Yankees’ hierarchy want him back. But in a winter of aggressive activity, the Yankees have been unwilling to bend for Pettitte. As an eight-year, $180 million deal for first baseman Mark Teixeira becomes official with a news conference Tuesday, the awkward Pettitte drama plays out in the background.
Remember when his return was "virtually inevitable?"

If this news is true, good riddance.
