Pavano Continues to Wear Skirt


If baseball is supposed to resemble life, the disabled list must be similar to a paid vacation. In Yankee pitcher Carl Pavano’s case, he must be on extended leave.

Pavano, already recovering from a dozen other minor injuries, was shutdown for the weekend after straining his left buttock while covering first baseball on a groundball to first base last Tuesday.

The right hander was affected by shoulder and back problems for the majority of last season and has yet to prove that he is worth the $40 million contract he signed. Apparently, a good hard kick in the ass is the last thing he needed.

Baseball players are truly amusing human beings. In what other sport does someone sit out because their butt is soar? (Insert witty homosexual comment here) What a group.

Courtesy of, here are a few classic baseball injuries:

  • Sammy Sosa was disabled after a violent sneeze.

  • Reliever Randy Flores was put on the disabled list - while removing his socks after a game, a large patch of skin also came off

  • Pitcher Greg Harris suffered a strained elbow flipping sunflower seeds while sitting in the bullpen.

  • Catcher Brent Mayne missed an entire month in the 2002 season because he turned his head to check traffic as he was crossing the street - and wrenched his back.

  • Outfielder Ken Griffey Jr. missed a game after his cup slipped and pinched a testicle.

  • John Smoltz burned his chest while ironing the shirt he was wearing.
