Andy Pettitte will be on a pitch count of about 85-90 tonight against the Twins, but he isn't interested in hearing about it.

"I can't think about pitch counts," Pettitte said. "The game will dictate what I need to do out there. And I'll pitch as if it's a normal start for me."

The 40-year-old pitched well in his last start, tossing five shutout innings before being removed after 75 pitches. Joe Girardi said yesterday, he may "push the envelope" depending on how tonight's game goes.

"I'm going to give them what I can," said Pettitte, heading into his second start since returning from a fractured left fibula. "My last game I just took it as if it was a normal game and whatever I got, I got. So I won't try to do anything different."
