Carl Pavano is starting to remind me of a right-handed version of Andy Pettitte. Both of them have that Betty Davis eyes thing going at times. Both of them are big body pitchers that you would expect to throw harder than they really do chuck. Their uni numbers are close – 45 now for Carl, 46 then for Andy. And, it seems like they are alike in the sense that they’re capable of throwing a great game or a hosting Tee-ball session. I know many were down on the signing of Pavano based on the “one-year wonder” theory. But, I think I’m going to like him – as I did Pettitte.
Joe T in the post-game said that Big Rube will be a few days with the bicep strain. Now that Bernie’s knee is barking – and we can thank Torre for that expression, we never used it before he was here – it could be interesting over the next week or so if an OF goes down or gets tossed from a game. We might see Womack do some emergency OF time.
Those electronic signs on the OF fences at the SkyDome/Rogers Centre are like a nightmare after watching “Bladerunner” and then taking cold medicine. Please, please, please, Big Stein, do not put them in the new Stadium in the Bronx!
