Pettitte to Houston unlikely

Alyson Footer brings us the good word, saying Andy Pettitte likely won't bolt to Houston.

Have the Astros reached out to Pettitte? Has Pettitte contacted the Astros?

According to general manager Ed Wade, no and no.

"We haven't had any discussion with Andy or his representatives and we don't see a scenario where he would fit into our payroll scenario at this time," Wade said.

And an e-mail inquiry sent to Pettitte's agent, Randy Hendricks, was not returned.
Nice try by Pettitte's people planting this story.

Good job of sniffing around there, Fletch. Journalism needs you badly.

Pettitte is starting to sound desperate. First the Dodgers. Now the Astros. Who's after him next? The Rangers?

Joe says....
Didn't we offer him more money than Houston and he still bolted? Loyalty is a two-way street.

I believe the Yankees did, Joe. I'm done with him at this point.

Pettitte is starting to sound desperate, Jane. He's going to regret not taking the $10 million.
