Pettitte 'ready to go'

Pettitte 'ready to go'

BOSTON -- Don't harp on the fact that Andy Pettitte made just two Grapefruit League starts all spring. Come Wednesday, he'll be ready.

"I feel good about everything," said Pettitte, who will start the Yankees' series finale against the Red Sox on Wednesday. "I'm ready to go. Good or bad, however I start out the season, it's not going to be because of Spring Training."

In his final spring start, Pettitte felt gassed by the fifth inning, unused to pitching in game situations. Weather and a host of extenuating circumstances had forced him to cancel multiple spring starts, transforming his second Grapefruit League tune-up into his last one.

In Boston, though, under the lights of Fenway Park, Pettitte's adrenaline should help him find the extra endurance he needs.

"Not a whole lot excites me anymore," Pettitte said. "But the energy in this ballpark makes it a little more entertaining than other places, for sure."
