BASEBALL: While The Iron Is Hot

The Hated Yankees have named Carl Pavano their Opening Day starter, I suppose on the theory that if they wait 4 more days he might not be available.

UPDATE: I should note that I have been expressing concern about Pavano's durability since April 2001 and May 2002, and warned in November 2004 that he was a bad investment.

Remember when Pavano was a good pitcher? He has become the posterboy against longterm high dollar contracts.

Crank, I love you but you know what the difference between Yankees and Met fans is-Yankee fans view the Red Sox as their biggest enemy while Mets fans view the Yankees as their biggest enemy. It is really sad and emblematic of all their problems.

Sorry for the off topic, http://www.newsday.com/news/nationworld/nation/ny-usbern0331,0,5452416.story?page=2&coll=ny-top-headlines
Anyone thinking or discussing Rudy for POTUS is wasting their time. Rudy has a ton of skeletons, but Kerik is a knock out blow. He is trash, and Rudy knew it all along. The party needs to move on.
On Pavano, he'll have a monster year. BY Sept he'll be the Bronx's beloved # 2 starter. A guy his age, looking at the Meche contract? Yeah, he'll get it together, looking for 14/15m per after his done in the Zoo.

Good one, Crank. I'll have to bust that one out on my Yankee fan friends.

Not good, but Carl had a better line than Schilling did.
