Yankees @ Jays; PaVoldemort To Start Saturday

The lineup below is via Pete Abraham, who also reports that Carl Stinking PaVoldemort will start Saturday’s game against Baltimore. What is the world coming to when the Yankees’ slim chances of making the playoffs in no small part hinge upon the creaky arm, career, and person that is Pavano? That’s bottom-of-the-barrel and, since the game is in Baltimore, will probably hear fewer boos than he would in The Bronx. Better win, C.P. You better win, you heretofore worthless sack of pig excrement.

Pete Abe also has an update on Joba Chamberlain, saying that Joba repeated his throwing program while adding 20 fastballs from 60 feet. Saturday will see Joba throw a 30-pitch bullpen consisting solely of fastballs and change-ups. Abraham estimates the second week of September for Joba’s return as a best-case scenario.

It’s a very Pete Abe day.

YANKEES (67-59)

[Edit: Thanks to Mike F. for forwarding this interesting article concerning Joba’s mechanics from Baseball Intellect, on which I’ll comment more later. I’m heading out for a heaping dinner of Chinese food.]

  1. a very pete abe day?

    ugh.

  2. Just a remark in reference to where the information came from. Take a deep breath, Mike.

  3. Jason, tell us how you really feel about Pavano. 🙂

  4. “We have big games now in Baltimore,” Derek Jeter said. “It’s up to us. We have to start stringing together some wins. We can’t win one here and then lose one. We have to get on a streak.”

    yadda, yadda, yadda…

  5. Pavano got off easy, Dan. I hope all has been well lately, Dan.

    I certainly agree, Mike. Jeter’s comment falls into the no-s*%t category and, honestly, while I have a ton of respect for Jeter the ball player, The Captain’s public pronouncements can usually be characterized as platitudes and banalities. They rarely add anything to what we know, and hardly ever reveal something deep. There are times when Jeter might as well conduct the hilarious recitation of cliches that Nuke LaLoosh did near the end of “Bull Durham.”

  6. Nice Potter reference Jason.

    Congrats Jeter! on 2,500

    Yanks 1 Baltimore 1. Top of the second

  7. Thanks Nick. Nice to see Jeter reach that milestone, thanks in good part to his recent hot streak. I’m not convinced it will be enough to propel this team near the playoffs, but it’s still nice to see.

    Who knows, maybe tonight will be the start of 12 straight wins, the streak Jeter’s hoped for? Good luck making it two straight with that asshead #45 on the hill.
