It got pretty ugly after this one.

Andy Pettitte seemed to question whether his teammates cared as much as he did.

“As a team we are not playing good baseball. We have to bear down a little bit,” he said. “I’m going to show my frustration. I’m going to show it because I care and I hope that everybody cares as much. I’m not going around polling everybody, but I’m going to wear my thoughts on my sleeve a little bit on the day I pitch. I only get to play once every fifth day. It’s extremely important to me and I think it’s extremely important to everybody else in here. At least I hope so.”

I asked Torre directly about using Rivera and he said he didn’t want to based on the 1.2 innings he had worked on Friday. It’s good that he wants to protect Rivera’s arm. But 20 pitches over nine days? I think he had two innings in him tonight.

Proctor was the last guy out of the showers. His interview was filled with expletives. Not good. I’ve decided not to post it. At the end of the day, I work for a newspaper and I have to be accountable.

Here is some audio from Torre:
