Pettitte Pitching in '08 is reporting that Andy Pettitte has decided to pitch for the Yankees in 2008, allowing the tri-state area's bomber fans to release a sigh of relief.

No word yet how this may, if at all, impact the ongoing negotiations with Johan Santana. It sure can't hurt, and may be the cause for Hankenstein's recent "deadline" announcment for Minnesota.

From the article:

Pettitte's agent, Randy Hendricks, said Monday that the 35-year-old left-hander had started telling teammates on Sunday. Hendricks then informed Yankees general manager Brian Cashman of the news.

The Houston Chronicle first reported that Pettitte would return in 2008.

"Many teammates have called urging Andy to return as well as manager Joe Girardi," Hendricks said, according to the Chronicle. "It's well known that the Yankees have publicly stated that they were ready for Andy when Andy was ready."
