Astros Hot Stove Noise 11/26/08 - Pettitte and Johnson, A Tale of Two Old Men

ESPN's Jerry Cranick listed Randy Johnson as his number one bargain basement guy.  I was unaware of this, but apparently, to stay in Arizonia, Johnson agreed to take a 50% pay cut off his $10 million salary from last year and is only looking for a one year deal.  Crasnick reports that multiple (near double digits) teams have expressed interest.  I hope the Astros are thinking about a $6-7 million offer.  Johnson was quietly good last year.

Andy Pettitte is not interested in LA, despite Ken Rosenthal's report to the contrary yesterday.

Oh, and the Rangers probably don't have any interest in Valverde; so we can't get a catcher that way I guess.
