Pavano will just be on the DL 4 days earlier than usual this year

I believe they just don't want to mess with Mussina's schedule. I think Mussina would have to make a start on 3 days rest for him to go Opening Day and the Yankees don't want to do that.

That makes sense, but why wouldn't they schedule Mussina's Spring Training starts so he could pitch opening day on regular rest?
I haven't followed the Yankee's Spring Training, has Pavano pitched well enough to earn the opening day start?

Wang will miss some time becuase of a hamstring injury, so that's why they've had to juggle their rotation.

Bob Shawkey, Waite Hoyt, Herb Pennock, Red Ruffing, Whitey Ford, Mel Stottlemyre, Catfish Hunter, Tommy John, Ron Guidry, Carl Pavano....

Carl Pavano?

Injuries, schedules or whatever.... It still doesn't sound right.

Think George is completely pissed off he didn't pony up the money for Dice-K?

Yankees might be in a wee bit of trouble, as their rotation isn't looking that great right now.

Talk about a 180, the man from DL to Opening day starter in a span of a few weeks.
