Have the Astros reached out to Pettitte? Has Pettitte contacted the Astros?

According to general manager Ed Wade, no and no.

Then this, just in case you weren't sure:

"Is Pettitte softening his stance? Maybe. But the Astros are maintaining their hard line, which makes a reunion highly unlikely, if not impossible."
