A little bit of news out of the Joe Torre charity event tonight in Manhattan:
Joe Girardi revealed for the first time that Mike Mussina told him after the season that he planned to retire. He has not heard from Moose since.
Andy Pettitte, contrary to some reports, said he wants only a one-year deal and he wants only to play for the Yankees. He is hoping a deal gets done soon.
Jorge Posada and Mariano Rivera said their respective shoulder rehabs are going well and both expect to be ready for spring training. Keep in mind, however, they have not started throwing yet. Posada said he is a catcher and has no interest in playing first base.
Derek Jeter has spoken to CC Sabathia since the end of the season. He didn’t go into details but clearly the recruiting process is underway.
Don Mattingly, who looked five years younger and happy as can be, said he wants to manage.
More later, including audio and photos, once I finish my newspaper story.
