I'll Take The Credit For This One
Tuesday, April 10, 2007
sad pavano :(This photo was taken moments before Carl got wind of the fact that the Yankees Chick is on his side

Folks, I think you all owe me a debt of gratitude.

cool carlCarl Pavano's performance yesterday, during which he allowed a mere 6 hits and 2 runs and required just 79 pitches to get through 7 complete innings, was something of a miraculous event. Not only was this his first regular season win in nearly 2 years (his last win came on May 22, 2005 against the Mets, a game that the Yankees Chick was at!), but with his 7-inning win he became the first Yankees pitcher of the year to last past the 5th inning, an accomplishment the worn-out bullpen surely appreciated. Factors like the controlled atmosphere (no cold, snow or wind in that dome, much to the Yanks' collective delight) and the morale-boost of the 8 runs the Yankees offense put up over the first 6 innings may have contributed to his success, but the bottom line is that Pavano was dialed-in yesterday and, for the first time in his career as a Yank, did not disappoint his team or the fans.

carl pitching!!!The reason I believe the fans and the team owe me a hearty "thank you!" (and perhaps some tickets to see Pavano's next home start, that would certainly indicate gratitude) is because, if you recall, the Yankees Chick took it upon herself to let bygones be bygones and made a concentrated effort to support Pavano 100% during his comeback. I even went so far as to replace the label I usually use to mark Pavano-related posts ("pavano must die") with one that more accurately describes my newfound CP support: "pavano must LIVE". My unwavering support for dear Carl got him through his first rocky start of the year (when he lasted just 4+ innings and gave up a run per inning), and I feel it was my dedication to reign in the Pavano puns that gave him the confidence to get out there yesterday and give it his all without worrying about his past or the pressure to perform well. Imagine Carl Pavano getting ready for the game in the clubhouse, feeling very anxious and alone, because no one believes in him and everyone is annoyed with this endless injuries. Then, like a lightbulb going off above his head, he remembers that there is one person that believes in him, the Yankees Chick! He jumps out of his depression and runs to the mound and pitches decently for the first time in years.

After seeing such positive results from my "I Support Carl Pavano" attitude after just 1 week, I am eager to see what the kid can do if I keep supporting him. Another start where he gets past the 6th inning? A couple month stretch without a missed start? I'm pulling for you, Carl!!!

    I find it a bit ironic that two of the biggest Yankee scapegoats in Pavano and A-Rod have been carrying this team so far. I think that is exactly what each needed to do start to get the fans back on their side and gain some confidence for the remainder of the season.

    By the way, any chance that you've seen this video of Bernie Williams playing with the Allman Brothers. I kinda hope in his post-Yankee career that he puts out another album and actually goes out and tours. Not that he'll need the money, but wouldn't it be fun to see Bernie in concert?

    i think to say pavano has been carrying the team is a little bt strong. i have supported him since he signed for us, despite of the injuries. knew he'd pitch well against the twins but he hasn't carried us.

    Ajra21, I disagree. If you look back on the tracks in the sand, you'll notice through the worst parts of the season, there are only one set of footprints. It's not because Carl abandoned us; it's because he carried us.

    NOTE: Apologizes for screwing up your comments, Yank Girl. I'll do better next time.

    ajra21, I was just being a little hyperbolic there. Besides, if credit goes anywhere, it must go to the pen sans Proctor. Not that a week's worth of games are the greatest sample size anyway.

    I'm sure everything will be turned on its head come June anyway.

    Chick, perhaps you should marry him.

    Apparently your magic may be short lived. Pavano was scratched from tomorrow's start with forearm discomfort.
