Yanks press Pettitte for decision

The Yankees appear to be racheting up the pressure for Andy Pettitte to decide if he will pitch for them this season.

General manager Brian Cashman told Michael Kay on ESPN radio that he phoned Pettitte Monday night but came away with no clue as to the lefthander's intentions.

Manager Joe Girardi, in an interview with, said he spoke with Pettitte last Wednesday and plans to call him again tomorrow.

``He's still thinking about what he wants to do,'' Girardi said. ``I just told him to take his time, that there was no rush to make a decision. I think this is such a tough decision for him, and it's tougher because he had such a good season last year.''
