Pettitte: 'I feel like that I'm ready to go up'

ROCHESTER -- Andy Pettitte says he's ready for the big leagues again. That's the clear message he gave the media this afternoon in Frontier Field.

"For me it's inevitable I believe to get me up there and get in the mix," Pettitte said after throwing five innings today for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in a 7-5 loss to Pawtucket. "... I feel like that I'm ready to go up and I think they're ready for me to come up."

In the audio file below, hear Pettitte's thoughts on a variety of topics, including his outing, his readiness for the big leagues, the thinking behind his comeback and his reaction to Mariano Rivera's injury.
