Pavano scratched from tonight’s start

The Yankees just announced that Carl Pavano has left Legends Field within the last 30 minutes and has been excused from tonight’s start for “personal reasons.”

A team spokesman claimed there is nothing physically wrong with Pavano and that his absence does not involve a legal matter.

Joe Torre is expected to address the situation after the game but we have already been informed that little information will be forthcoming.

It remains to be seen how much impact this latest issue will have on Pavano’s status in the rotation. Obviously nobody knows what the situation is, so now is not the time to poke fun at Pavano.

But clearly, this is yet another setback in what has been a terrible tenure with the Yankees.
