Pettitte returns to the Yankees!

“I think I told y’all, when people asked, ‘Would I ever come back?’ I said, ‘You know what? I would probably be too embarrassed to come back because I’m retiring and I’m announcing a retirement,’ “ Pettitte said. “That’s where I’ve been over the three or four days. I am embarrassed that I’m coming back. What can I do?

“Things have changed. My desire to do this has changed. I sure in the heck don’t want to look back 10 years from now and said, ‘Man, I wish I would have done that.’ “

“I believe if I’m mentally right, then I’m going to win,” he said. – espn
