• Pain In The Butt Pavano

    From the Post:

    After Pavano threw one inning in a Double-A game yesterday, Joe Torre said he wasn’t sure when the $40 million investment would pitch again due to a bruised rear end the pitcher suffered when he fell covering first base Tuesday night.

    “I don’t think we can schedule him until the soreness gets out,” Torre said of Pavano, who will open the season on the DL while he builds arm strength lost due to a balky back. “It’s not related to why he is behind everybody.”

    Pavano was gone from the Legends Field clubhouse by the time Torre described Pavano’s latest physical problem.

    Today’s pop quiz:

    a. Adamantium

      Maybe someone should duct tape a pillow to his butt. How much are the Yankees paying him, again?

      Let’s not to get too upset about this. The best thing Pavano can do for the Yankees is stay hurt. OK, the second-best thing. The best thing would be to push Jaret Wright down a flight or eleven of stairs.

      “The best thing would be to push Jaret Wright down a flight or eleven of stairs.” Torre would still start him in a game to determine home field in the playoffs. Well, maybe if it was “twelve” flights, he’d re-consider.
