Pettitte Fazed By Scrutiny

As a New York Yankee, Pettitte's got to be used to media attention. He's just not used to this kind of media attention. It looks like all the talk about Pettitte's cheating and dishonesty has gotten to the pitcher. He's asked to show up to Spring Training a few days late.

I don't think people quite grasp how difficult this must be for Andy. His reputation as an honest, religious, family man taken a serious hit but I doubt that's the most difficult part. Even more painful has got to be the fact that Pettitte is working to ruin the legacy of his friend Roger Clemens. And now it's come out to the media that Pettitte got an HGH shipment from his father, brining Pettitte's own family under the scrutiny of the public.

It will be interesting to see how Pettitte deals with the pressure and distractions. I wonder if he wishes now that he just retired last year.
