Pettitte: Yankees Or Retirement

Andy Pettitte has made an honorable decision – if he pitches in 2008, it will be for the Yankees.  He respects the fact that they awarded him a $16MM player option.  Sure, he could decline it and get a bigger multiyear package elsewhere.  Many speculated he’d do so.  However the extra money isn’t a concern for him.

My best guess is that he’ll exercise the option.  That would be odd, though, a player exercising a player option when it actually represents his true worth.
