Gotta tip your cap to Andy Pettitte for battling out there and still managing to give up just 2 runs in 6 innings.  He clearly wasn't himself, but he got the job done nonetheless.  It's a damn shame that he couldn't get the win.

Nice to see Farnsworth throwing hard again.  In fact, that may have been the first time he's hit 99 MPH on the gun since the team left Spring Training.

Game 2 marks the return of Mike Mussina.  Welcome back, Moose.  He probably won't throw more than 85 pitches, so the [gulp] bullpen will have to be armed and ready for action.
