Don't think Pettitte retires and don't think he leaves Texas area. JMHO.

my favorite part about all of this is that the Yankee fans are trying to rationalize it...dumb.

What's to rationalize? If they can improve their team by merely spending their vast amounts of cash, then what's the problem? It's not like the contracts will ever prevent them from spending more.

Spending money may not win them the World Series, but it definitely increases their odds, and allows them to make the playoffs each and every year.

That is true. However, we all know the only way George is satisfied...

I would feel the same way spending 200+ MM each year.

I think that signing Roger would be a good move. He's still a front of the rotation type pitcher and I'd gladly welcome him back. I mean I'd rather pay him for a year and see what's available next year.

Clemens for 1 year is an ok idea cause he still dominates..Petitte though I don't think so.

Clemens doesn't have any history of Injury while Peittite has been oft injured
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

What Yankee fans? I'm a Yankee fan and I'm going to vomit in a glass and have that for a morning milkshake the day I hear he's back on the Yankees.
