Rangers Reach Out To Pettitte (Updated)

(Update 10:04 PM) Bryan Hoch is now reporting that the Rangers are denying that they've contacted Pettitte. Oh well, he wasn't going there anyway. (Hat-tip to BBD).

From Mark Feinsand:
According to a source, Rangers president Nolan Ryan recently reached out to Pettitte, who is now a free agent, to see if he could convince the veteran lefthander to pitch in his home state.

The 38-year-old Pettitte has made no secret of his desire to be near his family in Houston — he left the Bronx in 2004 to play with the Astros before returning to New York in 2007 — and he may also be unhappy with his current pay structure. He serves as the team’s second starter while being paid along the lines of the fourth.
I'm not too concerned. Andy made his intentions pretty clear a couple weeks ago and the Rangers were not part of the picture.
" this point in my career, it'll be New York or it'll be nowhere for sure."
Sorry Nolan.
