Andy Pettitte will undergo season-ending surgery nexgt Tuesday to repair a torn flexor tendon. Pettite is expected to be ready for Spring Training.

This will almost certainly knock the Astros out of the wildcard race (if they weren't out already...and they were). Maybe we'll see the Astros try to trade Jeff Kent in the next couple of weeks. Rumor has it that Oakland is interested since his contract is up after the season. I'd like to see it happen.
