WELCOME BACK, ANDY
- P.S. Chewing on lemons right now are the pathetic tools who spread false stories, owner propaganda, personal agendas, etc. They don't like Yankee fans to be happy--and if they exhibited any jubilation for something positive about the Yankees, they'd probably be demoted or fired. So the most the Disney/ESPN tools can muster on this great day is:
- Andy Pettitte could have stayed in Houston. So why is the veteran left-hander returning to the Yankees? It all came down to $2 million the Astros weren't willing to pay, writes Jayson Stark." First, who in God's name is Stark?
- "Left Behind?" What does that mean anyway? I'm supposed to think Jayson Stark should be consulted on anything with his obvious past faux pas and biases? "It all came down to..."
- Oh, really, no kidding, so you have the definitive scoop from, say, an owner or other business person or voting member of the BBWAA such as yourself, OR ANYONE WHO SEEKS ANY MONETARY REWARD FROM DISNEY/ESPN EVER.
"It was all about the second year," said Tim Purpura, the Astros' general manager. "We had not even thought about a second year. That was not something even brought to us as a request until Wednesday. That was just not something we were prepared to do."
- B-B-B-But, ESPN just said something completely different. Wassup?
"Would we have negotiated on a one-year deal from where we were at? Possibly. But the two-year portion of it, that was just difficult for us." (added Purpura).
- Who's lying, ESPN's Jayson Stark, the Astro's General Manager, or the NY Times, including Tyler Kepner and Jack Curry?
