Andy Pettitte

The Yankees 10 million dollar offer to Andy Pettitte has been on the table for quite a while now. Pettitte has made it quite clear that he wants more than 10 mil, but to be frank, I'm not sure its a great idea to give him 16, or any more than 10. He wasn't great at all last season, going 14-14 with a 4.54 ERA. On the upside, he pitched 202 innings and is a real inning-eater, which could be a necessity. The Yankees have plenty of other people that could fill the 5th starter role. Al Aveces, Phil Hughes, and IPK are potential candidates. I would love to see Pettitte back in pinstripes, as he has been a great Yankee for a long time, but for 16 million dollars? I'd rather give the rookies a shot.
