Pettitte: It's the Yanks or bust

Some encouraging news via regarding Andy Pettitte's status for 2008:

"The New York Yankees committed an awful lot of money to me and put it in my hands, gave me a player option and trusted me with that option," Pettitte said in a story posted on Houston television station KRIV's Web site. "It probably wouldn't be real honorable for me not to do anything other than if I shut it down, shut it down or go back and play for the New York Yankees."

I'm not exactly going out on a limb when I say this team NEEDS Andy Pettitte in 2008 and I'm very glad to see following Torre and Co. to the Dodgers is not an option.  Imagine that, a ballplayer with integrity.
