Andy Pettitte Brian Cashman isn't the only one trying to woo Andy Pettitte -- Rangers president Nolan Ryan tells 1050 ESPN in New York that he's talked to Pettitte several times this winter.

Ryan Ruocco tweets that Pettitte told Ryan he will pitch for the Yankees or retire. Pettitte had also told Ryan he wouldn't make a decision until February.

That would be the time considering it's already February and pitchers and catchers report in the next two weeks -- but it does mean he hadn't made up his mind before now.

It's really looking more and more like Pettitte will return .

Rangers, Ryan have tried to woo Pettitte

Pettite should return because he can still pitch and he will be excellent to offset the Left handed bats of the Red Sox. It does not surprise me that Nolan Ryan tried to prey on his Texas roots...but better luck next time. Pettite is a Yankee!!!
