The Truth

But I hate him more

Saturday, January 10, 2009


“When you’re down, you expect your organization to pick you up, not kick you when you’re down,” Pavano said. “I’ve had to pick myself up quite a few times the last four years.”

Carl Pavano

Believe it or not, Carl Pavano has actually been pretty solid for the Yankees. His K/BB is at 1.75 right now which is not really good but not really terrible either. He`s also been doing this not at full strength. Tonight's start will be a big one for him. If he does well then the Yankees should really consider bringing him back on an incentive filled contract. The 5th spot in the rotation should be a major question mark next year.

Pavano Hurt

I think I`ve actually run out of bad jokes about Pavano. Somehow he`s injured again. He landed badly after a pitch and now his left hip is hurt. He`s probably ruined any chance he may have had of getting a contract with the Yankees. This probably means Sidney Ponson will finish the year with the Yankees. Hughes will likely move into Pavano's spot. Just totally absurd.

Pavano To Start Saturday

According to Carl Pavano's agent, he will be getting the start on Saturday vs. the Orioles. This is probably because of Phil Hughes' most recent start. If Pavano pitches well and (less likely) stays healthy, he could stay in the rotation, allowing Hughes to eventually replace either Rasner or Ponson. Carl has incentive to pitch well, as a good performance could net him a contract this offseason.

Hughes Not As Close As We Thought?

Tonight in Scranton: 3.2 IP, 8 H, 5 ER, 0 BB, 4 K, HR, 93 pitches (63 strikes). He will probably need at least one more start in the minors before being recalled to the majors, making Carl Pavano a candidate for a start sometime in the next week.

While we all try to forget about the game tonight, here is some rehab news courtesy of River Ave. Blues:
  • Phil Hughes threw 28 pitches in three innings for Low-A Charleston. He allowed two hits, walked a batter and threw 20 of his pitches for strikes. Five of his outs were groundball outs.
  • Carl Pavano started the game for Charleston and threw two innings, striking out four and allowing two baserunners.
  • Chien-Ming Wang got his cast taken off today
  • Andrew Brackman will throw off a mound on thursday
  • Eric Milton threw 35 pitches in a simulated game

As I was skimming through the German newspapers this morning I came across this interesting article in the Süddeutsche Zeitung. Here is what it looked like:

Don't worry why its not in German. It looks like Pavano is pretty far along. He claims that A-Rod is the father. I can't wait until the back of the Daily Post gets a hold of this.

Joba Okay...Yankees Sign Billy Crystal

First the serious stuff: Joba started today's spring training game against the Reds, and wasn't good, wasn't bad. He was supposed to go three or four innings, but left after two and a third because of a high pitch count. He threw 49 pitches/32 strikes, allowing two hits and striking out one. He also picked off Jay Bruce.

On a less serious note, the Yankees have signed Billy Crystal to a one-day contract. He is thought of as one of the best baseball players in Hollywood, and is most likely better than Kei Igawa, and is more durable than Carl Pavano. He will wear number 60, for his age, and will play against the Pirates on thursday. Says Crystal:
“I’ve been waiting 50 years for this call,” Crystal exclaimed. “I’m overwhelmed by the generosity of the Yankees and Commissioner Selig. I know this’ll be tougher than the Broadway Softball League, but I’m looking forward to helping the younger players…which, by the way, is all of them. Oops, I have to go, Scott Boras is on the phone.” (From Pete Abe)
IPK and Mo will pitch later, so I may update on what they do. Billy Traber is in right now.

Pavano to Return to Florida?

Marlins beat writer Mike Berardino thinks that after this year Carl Pavano will return to Florida. How can the Marlins afford such a top-of-the-line pitcher? He also notes that Pavano thinks he will be ready by mid season. Ready for what?
