George Steinbrenner is a fool.

Update: “To date, this offseason had only enhanced all of the negative feelings that Pettitte held toward the Yankees, according to multiple sources. Pettitte, who won 149 games in for the Yankees, couldn’t understand why the club moved so slowly to re-sign him. He turned down a four-year, $54-million offer from the Red Sox, a clear sign that the contest to get him was limited to the Yankees and Astros.”
