— Andy Pettitte’s only thought was to stay with the New York Yankees. He had no interest in returning to his hometown Houston Astros.

After months of stalled negotiations, Pettitte and the Yankees agreed Monday to a $5.5 million, one-year contract. While the guaranteed money is less than half New York’s original $10 million offer, he can make an additional $6.5 million in bonuses: $4.5 million based on innings and $2 million based on days on the active roster.
