[This was too good to pass up]
When you’re down, you expect your organization to pick you up, not kick you when you’re down. I’ve had to pick myself up quite a few times the last four years.
--Carl Pavano, here.
Now, I know my memory can be pretty bad on occasion, but didn't Cashman and co. pay him $40 million over four seasons?
Didn't they let him pitch last summer even after Pavano had received Tommy John surgery that many believed was unnecessary at the time?
No one denies that injuries happen, but with the garish frequency they occur to Pavano, one has to consider the notion that maybe Pavano simply can't handle the workload of a major league pitcher.
Mark Shapiro has to going "head, meet desk" right about now...
