I find it somewhat amazing that Carl Pavano may very well be the opening day starter (by default) for the Yankees. Funny how things work out. After all the scrutiny and criticism (deserved) he may be taking the mound to try and get the training moving for 2007.



Rusty Shackleford is just the name he uses to order Pizza with.

You know, for all of the flack that the Red Sox rotation is taking (even in the other thread in this forum), the New York rotation is pretty brutal.



I don't know what is more disquieting -- the fact that the rest of the statue is missing, or that it has four toes.

Wang - slight hamstring strain, will be back in April (nyjournalnews.com).
Mussina - healthy, solid spring, consistant enough.
Pettitte - slight back strain, but as of yesterday (sports.yahoo.com) feeling no discomfort, has a healthy shoulder, and has been looking awesome in the spring.
Pavano - decent enough this spring (sports.yahoo.com), and hasn't yet disintegrated into dust particles. With the low/limited expectations, he'll probably be at least average.
Igawa - higher pitch count than one would like, but should be a solid arm in the #5 spot.
In the wings: Rasner and Karstens.

"Brutal" is not a word I would use, to be honest. "Currently dubious", perhaps, but there might not be a rotation in MLB that is not "currently dubious". Matsuzaka, Schilling, Beckett, Wakefield, and ___? Dubious. To boot, the projected bullpen is looking quite good this spring (key word, "spring"):

Rivera: 0.00 ERA
Proctor: 0.00 ERA
Vizcaino: 1.80 ERA
Farnsworth: 2.57 ERA
Myers: 1.58 ERA
Bruney: 1.80 ERA

If someone offers them a baseball equivalent of Herschel Walker where you get a top of the rotation pitcher, a high level position player and a solid bullpen piece or back of the rotation starter, you have to at least look at it.
