NOOOOOOOO! If, as it appears, Andy Pettitte is on his way to Houston, then this is a black day indeed for Yankees fans. I've always liked Pettitte, and was glad a few years back when they didn't trade him for Chuck Finley (man, would that have been a mistake). He's a great pitcher, and a real gamer. But still, he has a right to play closer to home if he wants to, and I actually really admire the fact that he took a decent-sized pay cut ($3 million a year, it seems) because he wanted to be able to live with his children year-round.
