08:29 AM ET 01.07 | Fresh off his Hawaiian vacation, Andy Pettitte probably didn't appreciate the reporter showing up at his door to ask about his intentions ... again. The 38-year-old pitcher said he is unsure when he will reach a decision. The veteran left-hander is the biggest story in the New York baseball world, but the always-humble Pettitte does not see it that way. He has maintained a low profile this winter, and was annoyed when a reporter showed up on his doorstep. "I don't want to be a story," he said. "I really don't want [the Yankees] to worry about me. I just want them to go, just go on."

Is this guy for real?? I don't want to be a story. Well then make a decision, the whole organization is waiting on you. You are going to be a story until you do, weather you like it or not.

This guy is starting to remind me of Clemens.

what do you expect, really? its NY and the media is all over this. they are going to chase this thing until pettite makes a decision or the yanks make a move for another starter.

If he wants to be left alone, it's real easy, retire. Everybody will go away and not bother you anymore.

I wouldn't go that far. Petitte has yet to file a defamation suit against north america. He so far has not been linked to being a child molester and he hasn't thrown his wife under the bus for his own roid use.

And sadly, I would still like to live vicariously through him. Between you, me, and the fence post...loving vicariously through Atro has not been what I thought it would be

Exactly. He's just posturing for a larger payday.

Agreed...and the Yankees would be wise to ignore the posturing...

At this point, with all the off season doinks for the Yankees, he could hold out for $20M..... and get it

Can you imagine if steroids and cocaine were widely available in Mantle's day? I mean, we think Canseco's a freak.
