I've Officially Failed
Sunday, May 06, 2007
walking disasterPeace out to your elbow ligament, CP

Lest you get too jazzed about the Roger Clemens signing and start thinking that all the bad pitching mojo may at last be on its way out the door and out of our lives, the Yanks got some disappointing (if not surprising) news regarding my best friend and soulmate, Carl Pavano. After just 2 starts this year, one of which looked pretty promising, Pavano is officially out for the season and heading for Tommy John surgery. As you are probably aware, TJ surgery is very serious business and takes quite a while to recuperate from, usually 12-18 months, meaning all you hardcore CP fans will have to wait until approximately October of 2008 to see him pitch again.

The Yankees likely weren't exactly counting on Pavano to rejoin the team anytime soon even before the TJ news broke, but the fact that there is no hope of him returning puts the team in quite a bind for the next month. Clemens won't be joining the team for a month, and Hughes and Karstens will both be out for at least that long. Rasner did well today and we'll see how DeSalvo fares tomorrow, but suffice it to say that the offense is most likely in for another month of pressure as they try to carry the team.

The fact that Pavano is injured again comes as no real surprise, but the 3% of my brain that is optimistic has been holding out hope that perhaps Pavano could be a serviceable pitcher this year. I did my best to conjure up some good thoughts and positivity for the fellow, but clearly my efforts were in vain. Perhaps he is not an avid Yankees Chick reader (as I'm sure the rest of the team is) and was not aware of the positive vibes I have been campaigning for? It's the only explanation I can envision.

    The 2 worst words that a baseball GM, owner, team, and player can hear are "Doctor Andrews."

    Granted, when he does Tommy John surgery, it can make a player a superman, but it's not like he's just doing routine things better.

    This is the guy who came to profit on the extreme and steroid related injuries. Mind you, I'm not claiming Pavano is on roids (I'm not), but Andrews made a name treating the tear muscle off the bone injuries associated with steroids.

    No matter what's wrong with Pavano, being there - not a good thing at all

    I think we cal all agree that his Yankee career (if you can call it that) should be over. When/if he recovers, isn't his contract up around the same time?

    Yeah not only that THE MARINERS won tonight to add insult to injury.

    A little payback for yesterdays beat down in the fifth.

    Carl Pavano would invent injuries to suffer if he didn't actually suffer the occasional real one.
