Thoughts on Pettitte

New York Yankees pitcher Andy Pettitte turned down his $16 million player option Monday.

That doesn't mean, however, Pettitte is done with the Yankees. In fact, he says it's the Yankees in 2008 or retirement for the left-hander.

Much like his friend Roger Clemens, I take Pettitte's words with a grain of salt. He said he made his decision to return to the Yankees in 2007 because of his family.

His family who lives in the Houston area. That same Houston area Pettitte pitched in the previous three years.

I know baseball is a business and personal feelings should be left outside when it comes to that, but it seems more and more athletes are playing the family card and not living up to that end of the bargain.
