Pettitte to attempt comeback with Yankees

Left-hander Andy Pettitte reportedly signed a one-year minor league deal worth $2.5 million with the Yankees on Friday, bidding to return to the majors after a year out of the game. Pettitte, 39, retired after the 2010 season after going 11-3 with a 3.28 ERA.

Pettitte threw batting practice for the Yankees in late February and told the media he felt he could still pitch.

"I'd say yeah, I'm sure I could," he said on Feb. 27. "You start training, working out and getting yourself into shape, I'd imagine you could. I retired, I felt, after one of my better years. I felt like I was at the point where I just kind of knew what I was doing out there mechanically on the mound, but I retired to be with my family."

Although he hasn't pitched in a game since 2010, Pettitte said he has been throwing regularly with his teenage sons at his home in Texas.

In 16 big league seasons with the Yankees and Astros, Pettitte has a 240-138...

Ference on D&C: 'Extremely frustrating'

Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning, joining guest hosts Dale Arnold and Chris Mannix. The Bruins dropped their fourth straight game Thursday night, a 6-2 loss to the Panthers.

"It's obviously extremely frustrating for us, too," Ference said. "Trying to put our finger on exactly what's going on has been a bit of a challenge."

The problems appear to be so widespread among the team that it's difficult to prioritize the issues.

"I think we've proven it over the past few years even, is when one part of our game isn't up to snuff it's almost impossible for the other parts to be at their best, whether it's individually or as a group, when you talk about forwards or goaltenders or individual players," Ference said. "We have a system that needs every single person involved and not playing perfect hockey but close to the standard that we've all...

Mashup: Jets' Sanchez rips 'gutless' critics

Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez lashed out at the unnamed teammates who criticized him following the team's disappointing finish to the 2011 season, calling the comments "a gutless thing to do."

"If you're not going to put your name on something, why waste anybody's time?" said Sanchez, who last week signed a three-year, $40 million extension. "Obviously, they had strong opinions about it, but not strong enough to say who they are."

Sanchez, who has been quiet almost all of the offseason while reports came out about problems between him and receiver Santonio Holmes, took some responsibility for the issues.

"I don't want to speak for Santonio, but I know I underachieved," Sanchez said. "I think there were some things I could've handled better with him and our communication."

That said, Sanchez insisted the "feud" is not nearly as bad as it's been portrayed, and he and...
