Halladay Nasty, but Pavano Gone Forever

The Good

We've seen the last of Carl Pavano. We hope. There better not be a sequel to this horror.

Gardner went 3-4 yesterday with a double. Not bad. Robertson, Ramirez and Rasner combined for 2.2 innings of scoreless relief.

The Bad

Carl Pavano lasted just 3.2 innings and gave up 5 runs in his final "Screw You" to Yankee fans everywhere. Also bad, was the offense which was limited to 6 hits by 4 players.

The Ugly

Halladay rocks us. I mean there's no other way to say it. He throws 9 innings of 2 run ball, and we're just left sitting there with Carl Pavano counting his final Yankee paycheck.

Respect Jeter's Gangster is for the Children

The "Respect Jeter's Gangster" blog joined Johnny Damon's home run club, which raises money for the Children's Health Fund. We are pledged to donate $1.00 for every homerun the Yankees hit this season. We will keep a running tally of the home runs hit and the money donated throughout the season. No homeruns, since Halladay selfishly limited us to singles and a pair of doubles. I suspect he'll pay for that.

Melky Cabrera 8hr = $8.00
Alex Rodriguez 35hr = $35.00
Hideki Matsui 9 hr = $9.00
Bobby Abreu 20hr = $20.00
Jorge Posada 3hr = $3.00
Jason Giambi 32hr = $32.00
Johnny Damon 16hr = $16.00
Morgan Ensberg 1hr = $1.00
Robinson Cano 14hr = $14.00
Chad Moeller 1hr = $1.00
Wilson Betemit 6hr = $6.00
Derek Jeter 11hr = $11.00
Shelley Duncan 1hr = $1.00
Xavier Nady 11hr = $11.00
Jose Molina 3 hr = $3.00
Ivan Rodriguez 2hr = $2.00
Richie Sexson 1hr = $1.00
Cody Ransom 2hr= $2.00
Total = $174.00

I wonder which fool will pick up Pavano for next year. It'll make me crazy if he wins 20 games for somebody else.

I think Pavano's starting days are pretty much done. He'll get a contract somewhere, but won't be able to shoulder(hehe) a starters workload. He'll then end up in the bullpen somewhere, and likely pitch out of there for a few seasons.

Oooooohhhhhhhhhh, I'm with Jane on this one.......I have a sinking feeling that Pavano will resurface on some obscure team and have a career year putting up some incredible numbers, all because Joe Torre was slighted at the Stadium cereomony. The curse will continue, as will Pavano laughing at the Yankees!
