Andy Pettitte is on track to start on Sunday at Yankee Stadium against the Seattle Mariners. "Everybody's in agreement he's not going to benefit from any more time below," Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Tuesday. Pettitte retired after the 2010 season and sat out last year.

The arrival of the Hall of Fame ballot in the mail used to be a highly anticipated event in my household. I couldn't wait to see the first-time names because memories of those players would come rushing back. I looked forward to exploring the names and numbers on the ballot before deciding who I thought was deserving of a spot in Cooperstown. Now, thanks to the taint of the steroid era, the arrival of the ballot brings dread instead of anticipation, suspicion instead of admiration.

ROBBINSVILLE, N.J. - Four athletes tested positive for steroids during the 2010-11 school year, NJSIAA officials announced Wednesday. It was the most positive tests in the five-year history of the testing program. The previous high was two, said NJSIAA executive director Steve Timko. "It only reinforces the need for testing and how important it is to maintain this program," Timko said. "One [positive test] is too many.
