Report: Pettitte rejects Yankees' offer

From the Worldwide leader:

Andy Pettitte may not be returning to the New York Yankees after all.

The left-handed starter has rejected the Yankees' one-year, $10 million offer, The New York Times reported, citing a person with knowledge of the negotiations.

The door does not appear closed on Pettitte returning to New York. The New York Daily News reported that according to a person close to the situation, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman has "had dialogue" in recent days with Pettitte's agents, Randy and Alan Hendricks.

Last month, Pettitte told The Times that he wanted to return to the Yankees but was leaving the matter to his agents. Randy Hendricks did not respond to an e-mail message on Monday, The Times reported.

This has gone on way too long in my opinion. Yes, he's a free agent, but come on already. When deciding his value, all factors need to be taken into consideration: age, health, stats from last year- notwithstanding the complete support he got from the Yankees last year in the wake of the Mitchell mess.

I think $10M is a reasonable offer. If he really wants to be Yankee, it's time to take the matter out of the agents' hands and get this thing done.
