Just kidding. But did anyone expect Pavano to be 4-1 and (besides Mussina) the Yankees’ most reliable starter lately? I’m laughing as I write the words. Still, he wasn’t bad tonight, getting out of jams (thank you, Brett Gardner) and pitching with some efficiency. For me, the big moment of the game was Mo coming in for the 9th, escaping trouble (thank you, Derek Jeter) and giving the fans another save at the Stadium to remember. Loved all those flashbulbs.
Like all Yankee fans I’ve been thinking ahead to next season and wondering whether Cashman will stay, whether Hank and Hal will go free-agent crazy, etc. And then I came upon an article in New York Magazine that really made me worry. It was in an issue from a couple of weeks ago so maybe everybody’s read it by now. But it left me wishing George was still running the show. See what you think.
