    OT: Pettite rumor per Cowherd

    Listening to "the Herd" just now and he mentioned that he and a select group of people know the real reason Pettite left the Yankees. Then he said he's "not allowed to talk about it" approximately 5 times. Anyone know what he is referring to?

    There were rampant rumors when he left for Houston that his wife had busted him for cheating on her, so she demanded that he move back to Houston to be "home", where she could keep an eye on him. He had to choose wife or Yankees basically.

    Like I said, it was a rumor. Who knows if it was actually true.

    Some said the Yanks knew about the situation, so they knew they had no chance to sign him, thus the small effort to keep him. Others say they just had concerns about his elbow.

    Yep, I heard this too. Makes sense. My guess is Dandy Andy promised it wouldn't be a problem anymore (maybe the woman no longer lives in NYC?), so Mrs. Pettitte allowed him back.

    I thought if you were a professional athlete you were allowed to cheat on your wife.

    I told my wife that if I became a rock star or a professional athlete all bets were off with respect to fidelity. I think she looked at my gut and just laughed.

    Makes me wonder if Andy is the answer to the question posed in this thread, namely the NY "superstar" who cheats on his wife, as cited in the NY Post. Link
