Carl Pavano met the media this morning at the Metrodome and delivered a mostly uninteresting press conference ahead of his Game 3 start tomorrow night. When asked to reflect on his time in New York, Pavano said, “I mean, it’s tough. I mean, you know, it’s definitely a black period in my career, four years where I was kind of just treading water for awhile there, but obviously, with the way this year has gone, I have been able to go out there, and sustained health, go out there and be successful and get through the year and how everything has come full circle.”
Pavano also mentioned how good the chemistry is between him and his Twins teammates, a comment which made me laugh. His new teammtaes love him. His old teammates? They did this to him.
Yankees are on the field working out right now. Batting practice inside an empty dome is even weirder than an empty stadium – each crack of the bat sounds like a gunshot and balls that hit the seats make a thwacking sound that echoes throughout the place.
