• Hughes & Pavano Are Dogs

    Well, at least for a day, that is…

    Via the Charleston Post and Courier:

    New York Yankees pitchers Phil Hughes and Carl Pavano are scheduled to be Charleston RiverDogs at least for a day when they come to town for a rehabiliation assignment.

    Both are scheduled to pitch in today’s 7 p.m. game against the Asheville Tourists at Riley Park. How many innings either will go is unknown.

    It is the first time since the Yankees became affiliated with the RiverDogs in 2005 that New York has sent players to Charleston for a rehab assignment. Normally, the team has opted to send players to nearby affiliates Trenton or Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. The other option has been to advanced Class A Tampa, where the Yankees keep one of their bases of operation.

    They were originally slated to make appearances in Tampa with the Gulf Coast League Yankees on Monday and today, but weather was bad enough to wash out both dates.

    For those interested in tracking this event live, see this via the RiverDogs site:

    Anyone know the odds on one, or both, of these two re-injuring themselves this evening? It must be pretty high, no?

      Pavano’s hangnail will prevent him from actually starting. True story.

      Someone on some other blog, perhaps Pete Abe asked a very worthwhile question: What the hell is the mascot for the Asheville Tourists? Does he have a fanny pack, water bottle, and camera/binoculars?

      newguy – This is the Tourists logo: http://www.overthemound.com/otm/news/html/images/Asheville_Tourists.png

      Hawaiian shirt, camera and suitcase – atcually kinda neat.

      Also neat, the Tourists are who Crash Davis signs with at the end of Bull Durham. You can tell by the locker room when he walks in.
