Pettitte? really?

Alright, so we've all heard by now that the Cardinals declined to offer arbitration to, well, anyone. Old news, as it were. Confusing, but at least resolved. I can go back to speculating on other things, things that sound very interesting on the surface but which may or not be even close to the truth. Joe Strauss wrote this recently (thank you Busch Birds for bringing it to my attention):

The Cardinals are not among "nine or 10" teams" that have expressed interest in five-time Cy Young Award winner Randy Johnson.... The Cardinals may have more interest in another free agent lefthander, Andy Pettitte.


Does he mean this metaphorically, as in "the Cards have a better chance of bringing Dizzy Dean back from the dead to fill out their starting rotation"?

Or does he actually consider the Cardinals to be interested in Pettitte?

I absolutely cannot figure this out.
