In a move that shocked nearly everyone in the baseball world, Andy Pettitte and the New York Yankees agreed on a one-year deal, this morning, worth $2.5 million, effectively ending Pettitte’s retirement.

The deal is a minor league pact with an invitation to the Major League Spring Training.

Pettitte retired after an 11-3 season with a 3.28 ERA in 2010, leaving many fans wanting more. He was an All-Star that season, and many believed that he had retired too soon.

He was in camp as a Yankees instructor, which may have given him the itch to put on the pinstripes once more. Whatever his reasoning is, it was a smart decision for him to return.

It will likely take him a little extra time to get ready, as we’re already halfway through Spring Training, but all signs point to him being an effective starter when he returns.

Here are my bold predictions for Andy Pettitte’s comeback season in 2012.
