Carl Pavano returned to Yankee Stadium this evening, and was greeted by Derek Jeter and Curtis Granderson, both of whom took him deep in the bottom of the first.

For those of you who haven't read Joe Torre's book The Yankee Years, former Yankees and Orioles starter Mike Mussina is quoted several times throughout, and mentions that at one point during Pavano's tenure with the Yankees that teammates had taken to calling the disabled list "the Pavano." If, for example, Phil Hughes had been placed on the 15-day disabled list, his teammates listed his as being on the "15-day Pavano" when speaking about him.

Edit: Pavano is opposed in this game by "Big Game" Freddy Garcia.
