Throw Pavano Under the Bus


New York Daily News- John Harper:Crash course in losing patience

During Joe Torre's 11 seasons as manager of the Yankees, his public support of his players has bordered on unconditional. Nobody is more loyal. So nothing was more telling in this latest Carl Pavano fiasco than Torre yesterday essentially saying he'd had enough.

Not that the manager called Pavano a no-good, lying so-and-so, or a $40 million bust. But then, he didn't need to. Lee Mazzilli, who played for him 30 years ago, has always said Torre's withering stare made him feel guiltier for crimes of stupidity than any screaming fit or X-rated diatribe he ever endured from another manager.

So it was yesterday with Torre. In expressing his disappointment and frustration with Pavano, it was mostly Torre's cold, unsupportive tone that indicated he'd run out of patience with the months of injuries and now the strange story of Pavano's mysterious car accident.

He's been a complete bust since they day he was signed to that retarded contract. He's had one, count it, one, succesful season in his career, but typical Yankee knee-jerk fear of him being signed by Boston led the team to heap the BossBucks on his head. Since then he's been absolutely useless. Cut him loose. If you can't void his contract, buy the bastard out and send him packing.

Boston's looking to dump Boomer; I say go get him. You know he's been kicking himself ever since he left, and Epstein can't be a dick about what he wants for him. Bring him back as part of the roster expansion. You cannot go wrong bringing a lefty with a rubber arm.

Die in a Fire, A-Hole... no, Really. Die In A Goddamned Fire

Mike Lupica: Personal hell for Alex is getting worse by the day

His "personal hell"? The sonofabitch is what to this point, 0 for the West Coast? Give me Miguel Cairo, stat! He can't hit any worse, and I don't impulsively want to kill my TV every time I see his face.

But that Bruney guy? Dude! You've drilled more men in retaliation than Clemens did his whole shift in the Bronx.

Things Return to Normal

Wright stunk, the bullpen blew the fuck up, and oh yeah, someone please take A-Hole out back and beat him with his useless bat.

And Miracles Is The Way Things Ought To Be

I’m not talking about the just completed series. I don’t know if I would go so far as to say that a five game sweep, even with this lineup and this pitching staff, was an inevitability, but it certainly wasn’t all that surprising. TC might recall my thought from last week that the drama of this series had been reduced and that now it was about creating separation going into September.

No, I’m talking about the moves made (and not made) at the trading deadline, the development of the pitchers in the bullpen and the three from the farm, and the fact that this team is better than any (and not just the Yankees) I can remember since 1998 (I never dreamed I would be saying that even as recently as one month ago . . . and Matsui, Sheffield and Pavano are still on the DL and still may return this year).

I’m not sure who deserves the credit for the deadline moves, Cashman, the “Ghosts” or our evil overlords at Fox who need the polarizing force of nature that is the New York Yankees to return to the World Series and rescue their bottom line after the anticlimactic and then just plain dull endings to the last couple of years. I’m not sure whether there is any credit to be distributed for the development of Proctor and Villone or if that development was just luck. I’m not sure whether the guys from the farm have grown into the players they have because of the developmental guys in the organization, because the scouts picked gems out of the rough or just luck again.

What I do know though is that everything seems to be coming together, that this team right now doesn’t have any holes and that it appears to be on the verge of getting even better.

Oh Yoo Hoo... Red Sox Nay-tion...

You have now, officially been PWN3D!

A Large Regular

Dear Feckless Fenway Fuckwits…


Kick Their Redneck Bastard Asses!

Staten Island Starts Little League Series Quest
Including the disqualified South Bronx team of Danny Almonte infamy, Staten Island is the fifth New York City team to make the World Series since 1964 (three from Staten Island). "Staten Island is part of New York City but we've been like the stepchild," Calabrese's father, Joe, said. "But Staten Island has great baseball."

And we also have an abundance of asshole "adults":
After Steinbrenner gave the Staten Islanders a $5,000 donation yesterday to help pay travel expenses, Johnson ripped The Boss for not giving enough and slammed Yankees and Mets players, namely Alex Rodriguez, for not offering up money or a phone call. Staten Island, the Mid-Atlantic champs, plays its first Little League World Series game today at 1 p.m. vs. Columbus, Ga.

Johnson also was peeved at the Mets' front office for its lack of financial support, but aimed his venom at the Yankees, whom Staten Island officials claim raised $300,000 for the scandalized Rolando Paulino club of the South Bronx that forfeited its victories after it turned out player Danny Almonte was 14 years old.

"For Steinbrenner, $5,000 is throwing dollar bills in the air," Johnson told The Post. "Everything counts, don't get me wrong, but it's disappointing. And A-Rod, he plays $1,000 a hand in poker, he might as well throw $1,000 in our dugout. I don't want Steinbrenner's money. I want A-Rod's money. He's making $20 million a year."
Look, you whiny little good-for-nothing piece of shit, STFU! Don't you dare fucking cry about what some of these families laid out; you are the fucking "Mid Island" team, not the North Shore. Every one of the kids on your squad probably lives in a half million dollar house, has attended some high dollar baseball "camp" or academy or some such... don't you fucking dare scream poverty.

UPDATE: Losing the first game in a round robin is NOT a good thing, you guys.

We Win; They Don't. And Damon Beats Your BooBirds into Submission

Yeah! Formerly Known as "Caveman"

He cleaned up real good.
"'Every time we play this team, it takes on a life of its own, each game," Torre said.
"Every time you looked up, it was the fourth inning. It was nuts."

It's On, And We're Going

Wright’s performance on Thursday was not what we needed the day before a day night double-header followed by three games Saturday through Monday. It’s not just the loss (although every game does count the same – the unpopular truth is that even April games count just as much as September games) it’s that Mr. Torre had to go to the bullpen so early and, because the game didn’t get out of reach until later, he burned Villone for two innings (as I said, and I’m talking to you Olney – I’m assuming this is what you were referring to in your ESPN insider article which I didn’t read because I’m not paying extra to read your and your cronies’ B.S. – a win in that game would have counted just as much as that win in the afternoon game today did, plus – was it Casey Stengel who said it? – I believe that you should always play to win today, tomorrow it might rain). In any event, Villone bears some of the responsibility for the O‘s game getting out of hand. The use of Myers for two and a third innings might have been a little puzzling, especially with the certainty of the threat of late inning heroics by “Ortez” (thank you Mr. die-hard Sox fan John Kerry), but someone had to pitch those innings and Myers has been relatively underused. [Funnily enough, just after I started writing this earlier today Myers made an appearance and retired the should be reigning MVP - UPDATE: he did it again in the nightcap].

Now it’s the bottom of the fourth in the night cap. When this half-inning started and the Yankees had their two run lead, I was thinking if Ponson can just get through the sixth, the strain on the bullpen resulting from Wright’s short outing would be completely undone. Well that didn’t happen, but the Red Sox advantage of having a day off on Thursday is now gone and the two bullpens equally taxed (giving the Yankees the pitching advantage for the rest of the series by virtue of their, I never thought I’d be saying this earlier in the season, superior staff) since the Red Sox didn’t get length from either of their starters today.

By the way, while I’m on the subject of bullpens, how about that Brian Bruney, showing something with that dominant ninth in that O’s game. It looks like we’ve found our closer in blowout games.

DBG's Last Good Thing

He looked really old today...New York Yankees News:
"On a bright, sunny day in the Bronx, the Yankees broke ground on the new Yankee Stadium just across the street from what will ultimately be known as the old Yankee Stadium.

The date, Aug. 16, is already famous in Yankees history as the same date on which Babe Ruth died 58 years ago, but it will undoubtedly take on a new meaning after Wednesday."

It's also my birthday, you shitheads....

Anyone Got Some Desktops to Spare?

DDOS Fatwa worthy: Cheer
You "Hispanics Across America" punta maricone pirates can kiss my black Irish ass.

When A-Hole does something that delivers a ring--or at least an AL pennent win--he comes off the "FUCK YOU" list.

Not one day earlier.

Dear Pennsylvania Refugees

Welcome to the pennant race. I imagine a month or so ago you never imagined you'd be involved in one any time soon, considering your previous crews....

But lemme tell you something: You new guys think the last few days were hot? You ain't seen nuthin' yet. In two weeks it's Armaggedon Weekend: five games in Boston, where the temperture is gonna be a billion freaking degrees, and your mission will be to put a stake straight through the feckless Fenway fuckwits' collective hearts.
