    Hey, it’s possible.

    If true, that would be 501 days between Yankees starts for big Carl…as he last pitched for New York on April 9, 2007.

    For the record, in his four years as a member of the New York Yankees, Pavano has made nineteen starts and faced 488 batters – recording 111.3 IP and an ERA of 4.77.

    Surprising, only seven pitchers have made more starts for the Yankees during this time than Pavano: Mike Mussina, Chien-Ming Wang, Randy Johnson, Andy Pettitte, Jaret Wright, Darrell Rasner, and Shawn Chacon. (Phil Hughes has tied Pavano here with 19 starts as well.)

    Since 2005, there have been 30 different pitchers to start games for the Yankees: Mike Mussina, Chien-Ming Wang, Randy Johnson, Andy Pettitte, Jaret Wright, Darrell Rasner, Shawn Chacon, Carl Pavano, Phil Hughes, Roger Clemens, Kei Igawa, Kevin Brown, Ian Kennedy, Aaron Small, Joba Chamberlain, Sidney Ponson, Al Leiter, Jeff Karstens, Cory Lidle, Tyler Clippard, Matt DeSalvo, Sean Henn, Chase Wright, Dan Giese, Darrell May, Tim Redding, Tanyon Sturtze, Brian Bruney, Kris Wilson, and Scott Proctor.

      Pavano will pitch game 7 of the series and in 10 years time. His number will be retired after gathering over 120 wins as a Yankee.

      You know, just out of morbid curiosity, I would like to see the fan reaction when he pitches here. Or better yet, the first time he enters the clubhouse.

      I got tickets to every game during the last week on September. I have never seen Pavano pitch ( has anyone? ), so he will make an appearance just for me.
