In The Darkness Of Night...

This was posted very quietly yesterday....

9/6/06 Carl Pavano-Transferred from the 15-day to the 60-day disabled list.

Talk about a deafening silence. Wow.

The Yankees are in the same boat they were in with Giambi over a year ago. It's going to be tough to move him without taking on a significant portion of his salary. And if you get a taker, what would you consider a fair exchange? You're certainly not getting equal value for him. I doubt someone is going to trade their top prospects for damaged goods. Noone not taking serious anti-psychotic medication. Anyone who saw last night's no-hitter and last night's Red Sox game will know the danger of that gamble.

I've heard whisperings that Pavano has a problems with taking responsibility for his actions. But I had no idea it was this bad. Even if he was cleared to play, would you blame Torre for not trusting him in a big spot? If it's game 5 of the ALDS, we're up 1 in the seventh, and he has to face Thome, Konerko and Dye to get out of the inning, do you trust that the Sox don't put up a crooked number on us?

Neither do I.

This was the Yankees way of saying, "We don't want to see your ass again until next year. Get your head straight and maybe, we'll call you."

What a waste. Of talent and money.

I'm disgusted with Pavano. He's Kevin Brown all over again..
