Pettitte to arrive today

Andy Pettitte is set to report to Spring Training in Tampa today and will hold a 3 p.m. news conference this afternoon.

Those who are expecting him to say anything newsworthy will probably be left disappointed. I can see this news conference being similar to Jason Giambi's vague apology for doing "that stuff."

While we kind of know what Pettitte did (he claimed to only using HGH twice in 2002, which later turned out to be a lie), what else is there for Pettitte to say?

He definitely won't say that he's robbing the Yankees of $16 million by misleading them.

All he will say is that he's sorry and that he will be ready for the season.

Unfortunately, this is the big story today and this is what all the papers will have tomorrow. Hopefully this will be the last of the Mitchell Report fallout for now. With Spring Training getting underway, the distractions should be kept to a minimum.
