There is a #2 SP available. If the Stros want to shell out some real bucks next year they can go after Pettitte. He just opted out of his option for next year.
And if you think he meant what he said last week I think you are naive.
It's always about the money. If Drayton thinks he needs to show he wants to win GO FOR IT. This might be they best thing he could do with his money this offseason.
Check that......... I am sure that signing Pettitte would be the best option for The Astros in 08..... If they decide they have to make a big move. Otherwise save while it's raining so you can spend when it's sunny.
