08:22 AM ET 01.20 | Andy Pettitte may not be off the grid, after all. It may be an encouraging sign for the Yankees that the left-hander has at least picked up a baseball this winter. Yankees manager Joe Girardi said on Wednesday that he had spoken to Pettitte in the last week and that the hurler was starting to get into baseball shape, just in case he decides to pitch in 2011. "I believe he is throwing," Girardi said at Yankee Stadium. "He wants to be prepared, whatever his decision is." ... For now, Girardi said he is looking at his rotation on paper without Pettitte, but holding out hope that won't have to be the case in three weeks.

Let us see. Cashman calling up Andy:
So have you decided on coming back yet?
I don't know Brian for how much?
Same as last year Andy, why?
Not enough! You need to pay me A-Rod money and you need to be my personal ball washer! Especially since you have been treating me like crap the past few year.
Oh Ok Andy you got it

He'd probably sign in a snap if Levine was negotiating his contract instead of Cashman.

I agree. I had someone text me once and I told him:

"Call me, email me, come SEE me. Dont text me. You will sooner get a hand-written message in crayon on yellow lined paper delivered by pony express, than receive a text from me."
