Listen as Pettitte, with cautious optimism, spoke to reporters Tuesday, 48 days after suffering a freak broken leg.
The Mets got Johan Santana for a bag of Doritos. And you wonder if Yankees starter Phil Hughes, who Cashman & Co. refused to part with, is now nacho cheese or cool ranch.
The Yankees tied the Atlanta Braves 5-5 in 10 innings on Wednesday. A fitting score and outcome, considering New York’s rotation conundrum.

With two more years left on his five-year deal, and the postseason upon us, A.J. Burnett sat down with Sweeny Murti for half an hour on Wednesday.
A.J. Burnett had an awful August, but set it aside to put in a nice performance against the Red Sox in a 4-2 Yankees win on Thursday. But not everyone is convinced he’s turned it around.
