Here is Joe Girardi’s post-practice press conference:
A couple of other little tidbits picked up from today:
* Andy Pettitte received a loud cheer from the crowd after he was finished throwing BP today. He’ll get a standing ovation at the Stadium after his first start. HGH? What HGH?
* Kei Igawa still wears his sunglasses on the mound during the day.
* George Steinbrenner, Hank Steinbrenner and Jennifer Steinbrenner Swindal were all eating lunch today at Max’s Cafe. George’s other daughter, Jessica, was there for a while as well. I don’t think they had to pay $5 like everybody else. Hammerin’ Hank shook hands with all the writers. We love Hank, needless to say.
* Mike Mussina, Mr. Stanford, had a John Deere t-shirt on today.
