Andy Pettitte spoke to reporters and reiterated much of what he said with Michael Kay on Wednesday. He is very "excited" about Sunday and will have many family and friends there.
As for the biggest news of the season, Pettitte feels as bad as all the Yankee fans that Mariano Rivera is done for the season.
"That's terrible," Pettitte said. "Obviously, my decision to comeback was made between me and my family and a lot of thinking about that. Mo was pushing really hard [for me] to try to comeback, also, to try to do this thing one more time here and try to bring hopefully a championship for New York. And to see him go down was extremely disappointing for me. He is absolutely amazing. When you lose someone like him, you can not replace that."
