Ed Wade, the Astro's GM, said to MLB.com that a return to Houston is unlikely for Pettitte. No surprise here. Even if Pettitte is willing to go to what will probably be a non-competitive team, why would Houston want him? They`ve been very cheap this year and an offer of over 10 million for Pettitte is unlikely. He`s a one year patch and that's not what Houston needs.
I still say Pettitte will be a Yankee by the time pitchers and catchers report.
