It’s Opening Day!

Well, we should be fair.  The Mets and Cardinals opened the Season.  But today is the Yankees’ opener, and PAVANO is starting.  Our year will be um interesting!  I am hopeful of course yet I sense some inanity in our roster.  Perhaps Miguel Cairo will learn a new position or two.  I close this brief entry with the last 2 paragraphs of George King’s article in today’s New York POST: 

A 61-64 career pitcher, Pavano signed a four-year, $40 million dealafter the 2004 season and has pitched in 17 games (4-6; 4.77 ERA) for
the Yankees.

"He has the ability to certainly have the fans
embrace him," Torre said. "He is a good guy. I know some bad things
have happened around him and probably he is responsible for most of
them. But hopefully, with the understanding that the priority is
baseball, I think he is in a pretty good place right now. He has to go
out and pitch. If he stays healthy, I am very confident he will do
well."

    Pavano seems like a solid fourth starter to me, so I think he is not an ace, but an ok pitcher. We’ll see. The team committed two errors behind him — were they testing him? Over time, I agree with Torre (a first?), I think he’ll prove ok. He seemed…gulp…durable today.
