Pavano getting lit up for 5 runs in 1st inning


Recommended Posts

I don't write this with any glee.

 

Nor any sour grapes.

 

We all loved Carl when he was here, and wish him nothing but the best with the Yankees, and everyone knows of the mutual respect he and Jeffrey Loria share.

 

My point is even the best pitchers have their off days. While we're ready to damn any member of our staff who performs at anywhere less than perfection, watching Pavano being slaughtered reminds me that no is perfect and not every pitcher has his best stuff every outing.

 

Somewhere some Yankees fan is opining on a messageboard that Pavano stinks, s*ucks, doesn't deserve to be a Yankee, ought to be traded for a bag of peanut shells, etc. Others are saying they told you so, that Cashman/Steinbrenner were fools for giving him all that $$$ or even sign him in the first place.

 

We Marlins fans know better. Carl is a first rate talent. He's just having a bad day. A thought we ought to remember when one our own has one too.

He's throwing nothing but fastballs. Ichiro reached base on an impossible splitter and he "struckout" Beltre on a splitter as well.

 

It's ok, the Yanks are piling up runs too.

Gary Thorne said he has heard rumblings that people dont think he can hack it in NYC

 

anyway, if not for ARod's awful error in the first, he would have had a 1-2-3 in this might be a different ball game

 

and shame on Mike Hargrove for pitching Jamie Moyer today..... aboslutely retarded on his part

I guess my point was lost here, or you all are responding to finding it moved by some Mod who was too lazy to actually read my post, saw the headline and moved it to the Major League Baseball thread, BUT I want to reiterate the thought, which is that our (read Marlins fans who post here) expectation level for the Marlins pitching staff, both atarters and relievers is way too high, whether it be AJ or Dontrelle or Leiter and Jones.

 

If you think Al Leiter looked bad lately you should have seen Carl getting lit up for five runs before the second out was made in the first inning. He had that look like we haven't seen since Boston. Even when Leiter was at his worst, he didn't have that "I think I just got broad-sided by a semi" look that we saw today.

Is it not Moyer's turn in the rotation? I don't understand what your problem is

Didn't Moyer just pitch Monday?

Checking Monday's game and he didn't. His last game was vs. BOS on May 6th and he went 2.2 inning
