Pavano: another setback (lol)

Postby The Big Train » Sun Aug 27, 2006 7:07 pm

I normally don't laugh at player injuries, but this is becoming such a joke it's hard not to... can't say that I feel bad for the Yankees... that's what you get for throwing $40 million at a guy with one decent season in his entire career.

NY POST

August 27, 2006 -- YANKEE NOTES

ANAHEIM - Carl Pavano is running out of body parts to break down.
Following his rehab start for Columbus (Triple-A) Friday night, Pavano talked of a problem with an oblique muscle, and there is the possibility he will be shut down.

Asked to confirm the problem before yesterday's game, Joe Torre said he couldn't until he talked to GM Brian Cashman. After the 12-7 loss to the Angels, Torre said he still hadn't gotten in touch with Cashman.

Pavano, a $40-million investment who hasn't pitched in a big-league game since last June due to back, buttock and elbow troubles, threw six innings for Columbus. He allowed two runs, eight hits, walked one and fanned five. After the 89-pitch outing, Pavano said he felt he was ready for the big leagues.

Now, that's in jeopardy.

Before Friday night's rehab start, Pavano was a candidate to replace Jaret Wright in the rotation. And Wright didn't score many points with a bullpen-killing effort that lasted 32/3 innings and included three runs and nine hits.

At this point I don't think this guy wants to pitch for the Yankees. I just wish there was a way the Yanks could void this guys contract but I don't think that's going to happen. Talk about not earning your money.

I feel this way as well & apparently you & I are not alone in this line of thinking.

From Rotoworld:Aug. 28 - 9:48 am et
According to the New York Times, "there is a widespread perception in the Yankees’ clubhouse that Carl Pavano simply does not want to pitch."
Pavano has suffered yet another setback in his recovery, making his status for a start this week uncertain. The newspaper reports that Pavano "seems to have no defenders among the players, who stopped counting on him long ago."


Also from Rotoworld:Aug. 28 - 5:43 pm et
According to ESPN's Buster Olney, Carl Pavano was hurt in a car accident on Aug. 15 but informed the Yankees of the injury only in recent days.
The Yankees did invest $40 million in you, Carl. Maybe that gives them some right to know about these things? Pavano was examined in Columbus, Ohio, on Monday for a possible rib fracture. He's currently scheduled to start for Triple-A Columbus on Wednesday

I just read this...

Yankees pitcher Carl Pavano has a pair of broken ribs, the result of a car accident several weeks ago he initially didn't tell the team about. New York GM Brian Cashman said Monday that Pavano has made three rehab starts with the rib injury. He disclosed it to the team Saturday after feeling discomfort in his most recent minor-league outing. "Of course I'm angry," Cashman said, adding that "it's extremely frustrating" and "it's extremely disappointing." Cashman still hopes Pavano would be able to pitch in the major leagues this season. Pavano is to have another medical checkup Tuesday. "We have had players play with this issue before," he said.

This guy should be forced to pay back every penny he has taken from the Yankees...especially after this car crash thing surfaced.
