    Pettitte agreed to a one-year, $12 million contract Wednesday with the Yankees. "Whenever I say it again, that is going to be it," Pettitte said. I don't know what you are going to do, but as soon as you decide, we want to sign you back,' " Pettitte said Wednesday. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Sunday he knows of no timetable for Pettitte's decision, except that the left-hander told him after the season he would make it "soon." The Major Leagues' active wins leader with 245 and the all-time postseason wins leader with 19, Pettitte said after the playoffs that he hoped to provide the Yankees with a decision "within a month or so" in order to help the club move on to other needs. The Yankees are also hopeful of finalizing terms on a one-year contract with all-time saves leader Mariano Rivera before next week's Winter Meetings in Nashville, with that contract figure yet to be determined. For Cash to reach out to me and tell me that, you feel like the organization feels pretty good about bringing you back and feels pretty good about what you have done."
