On on completely un-hockey related note – The Yankees have just resigned pitcher Andy Pettitte to a 1-year, $5.5 million deal. Here’s an excerpt from ESPN.com’s article on the signing:
After months of stalled negotiations, Pettitte and the Yankees agreed Monday to a $5.5 million, one-year contract. While the guaranteed money is less than half New York’s original $10 million offer, he can make an additional $6.5 million in bonuses: $4.5 million based on innings and $2 million based on days on the active roster.
Read that again. According to ESPN, 5.5 is less than half of 10. Worldwide leader in sports. Not so much first grade math.
