Pavano out again?

This just in: Carl Pavano could be headed to the DL -- again. I think I beat the under of about six weeks.

According to ESPN.com, Pavano will make an appointment later this week with noted arm specialist Dr. James Andrews.

The right-hander, maybe best known for briefly being Alyssa Milano's fuck bunny, signed a four-year, $39.95 million deal with the New York Yankees in 2004 after going 18-8 with Florida.

This could go down as one of the all-time worst free-agent signings. Ever. And remember, this is a team that once inked "fat, pussie toad" Hideki Irabu.

Since joining the Bronx Bombers, he's gone 5-6 with a 4.77 ERA in 19 starts. He missed all of last season with strained buttocks -- yes, a pain in the ass, which I am sure is what George Steinbrenner is thinking when he signs those checks. This time, Pavano has had a setback from a strained forearm.

Prized prospect Phil Hughes was throwing a no-hitter into the seventh inning Tuesday before leaving with a hamstring injury. He joined Pavano, Mike Mussina (hamstring) and Jeff Karstens (broken right leg) on the disabled list. Chien-Ming Wang was sidelined early in the season with a hamstring injury. And strength and conditioning coach Marty Miller was fired Wednesday. Big shock.

I make no secret of this: it does may heart good to see the Yankees in turmoil.

Maybe she likes him to wear floppy ears and a fuzzy tail.
