Congratulations to Mr Wang For Being The First Starting Pitcher on the 2007 DL!
Saturday, March 24, 2007
wangsterCarefulllll....caaaaaaaarefulll....don't stretch anything......DAMMIT!


In yet another clear-cut case of "why haven't these people heard of stretching", Mr. Chien-Ming Wang has strained his hamstring and will be sidelined for the first 3 weeks of the season. The Wangster summed up the injury and its timing as "very sad" and that he "hope[s] it gets better"; I suppose if you are a non-english speaking pitcher, those are a couple good phrases to memorize once you get injured.

andy pandyWang and Pettitte were the two being considered for the excitement/pressure of opening-day starting duties, and while it would seem a safe bet that Pettitte would be defaulted into that role, his own bodily dysfunctions (back spasms, to be exact) mean that he won't be chosen as the opener either....which means....wait for it.....
It's looking like the Yankees Chick's personal saviour Carl Pavano will be sauntering (carefully, please!) up to the mound on opening day. I joke that there is nothing CP could do to redeem himself in my eyes, but I suppose if he whips out a good opening day performance I might trust him 0.009% more than I do at these moment.

j. karstensWang's ill-timed injury/Bahamavention also means that the Yanks will get to give one of their Spring Training pitchers a try-out as the 5th man in the rotation for the first couple weeks of the season. Jeff Karstens is the obvious top choice for the job, since he has pitched for the Yankees a bit in the past and has had a successful spring - 2.70 ERA, 11 strikeouts and 0 walks given up in 13.1 innings pitched.

The good news is that Wang's injury shouldn't pose long-term problems; he should be back in the rotation in late April/early May. The bad news, of course, is that I don't really enjoy writing about injuries unless they are occurring to non-Yankees or Carl Pavano, so I think I'm done for the day...

    Are you kidding me? Doah. I've been out of the country for two weeks, and I just was getting cuaght up on emails. Of all people, a Red Sucks fan directed me to your site. I've been telling everyone Wang is a 20 game winner & potential Cy Young winner this year. Good going, numb nut.

    Pavano ... someone shoot me, if they're not going to shoot him. I'll be back to read more, but at a glance it looks great.

    I get going on my daily Yankees rants once the season gets going, but nothing as sharp looking as your site. I look forward to reading more.

    Opening day with Pavano. Some get Guidry a glove.

    well at least there is less time before pavano's first start for him to injure himself ...

    Today, Karstens left his start against the Tigers due to elbow stiffness. Too bad also... he pitched well before today and his previous start. Hopefully it's not too serious.

    Don't want to stray too offcolor here, but given the post started about Mr. Wang and went on to suggest Mr. Pavano "whip out... a performance", Dr. Freud wonders - have we been having dreams lately?
