Andy Pettitte just held a conference call. I’ll have highlights on the blog after I get my newspaper story finished, but there was nothing too shocking. Pettitte wouldn’t rule out the idea of pitching again in 2014, but that doesn’t seem to be on his mind. He also said the contract was basically finished before Thanksgiving and came together after only a day or two.

Meanwhile, down in Atlanta, the Braves have signed B.J. Upton to a five-year deal worth $70-75 million. That’s helps set the bar for free agent position players like Nick Swisher.
