Andy Pettitte stopped by for a few minutes. While Joe Girardi has said he thinks the lefty will be back, Pettitte is not ready to say that quite yet.
“I need to get away and weigh some things over,” he said. “I know what I want to do and what I’m expected to do but I don’t know whether I can do it.”
Pettitte said his wife and kids have “fallen back in love with New York” and their life in Westchester. It seems pretty obvious that he will return for 2009.
When asked about Mike Mussina, Pettitte said that he and the Moose have spoken but he thinks that it’s only right that Mussina announce his intentions.
A few minutes later, Pettitte said that Moose “is strong-willed” and that if anybody could walk away after going 20-9, it’s him.
