For the love of god can we please attempt to sign our “non ace” to a longer term deal. With the boatloads of money we’re paying Carl Pavano, Jason Giambi and Kei Igawa why are we dragging our feet over some $$$ that would make for a lot wiser investment. There are obviously no sure things when dealing with contracts but even if Wang’s right arm fell off directly after sealing the deal he would have more than earned his money from his previous years performance where he earned next to nothing, comparatively speaking.


Speaking of Carl Pavano and other injured players, i was wondering that since we’re paying them,  are we allowed to assign them other duties when they are unable to play? Who wouldn’t love to see Carl Pavano cleaning the toilets at Yankee stadium? Or being a bat boy? Or being the practice dummy for Shelley when he’s practicing his take out slides? Actually, having now thought about it in more detail, i wouldn’t like to put actual valuable Yankee employees out of a job just to accommodate worthless players.

Right – it has to be said – I love Chien Ming Wang. There are so many ways to make saying that sound very very dodgy…….but (in public at least), I’ll refrain.

This time last year he was 0-2 with a 5+ ERA, and still put up a 19 win season with a sub-4 ERA.

Barring any more freaky goings on with his fake fingernail (yeuch…), well, I’m not even going to bother saying he could put up a huge season any more….. It’s obvious what he could do.

Also – I’m can only hope it will happen, but how hilarious would it be for the team to play Wild Thing over the PA as Phil comes out when he makes his next start….

Also – Great to hear/see Bobby Murcer back in the booth tonight. He was loving the bleacher creatures’ roll-call as well – Nice work!

In other matters, NASN are showing the Marlins – Padres game just now. The Marlins have a “bring your dog to the ballpark” night going on. What the hell is that about!? Oh, and I wonder if they count them in attendance to boost it a bit…..
