      Hey, does Wang throw 95? A yankee fan on the radio just said he threw 95 and I didn't remember that about him. I figured 92 with a nasty splitter.

      He's pushed mid nineties, but not consistently.

      I seem to remember him topping out at 91 when I saw him throw.

      I don't know much about him but I don't even remember the guy he replaced pitching. I guess he can't hurt.

      I definately feel more confident with our pitching staff going into this season compared to last.

      i believe wang has hit 94 before the injury to his shoulder.. it's the sink on his pitches that make him nasty though speed or not

      I have seen Wang hit 94-96 a couple times, it just looks odd because his delivery is so slow.

      His first game in Toronto they talked about how as he progresses through the season he throws harder and harder, but his progression slowed because of a shoulder issue. So we didn't see the consistent numbers.

      Pavano seems to be haveing a few issues

      Quote, originally posted by George King - NYPost »
      February 14, 2006 -- The key to the Yankees' pitching success and quite likely their season will throw off a mound tomorrow at the minor league complex in Tampa.
      Carl Pavano, who missed the second half of last season with a shoulder problem, experienced back discomfort last week and was examined by back expert Dr. Robert Watkins in L.A. While the tests didn't reveal a problem, the Yankees held their breath.

      Now, Pavano is taking the next step in his off-season conditioning program.

      "He threw off flat ground [yesterday] and will throw off the mound [tomorrow]," GM Brian Cashman said.

      Cashman wasn't alarmed when Pavano told the medical staff he was experiencing something in his back. Yet, it was early February and the workload isn't what it will be when pitchers and catchers report to Tampa Thursday.

      "The bottom line is that any complaint at this time of the year, you have to check," Cashman said. "This is the time of the year you build up arm strength and your legs, and your back is a part of that."

      Health is a huge question mark for the Yankees' starting staff, and Pavano is at the head of the list. After signing a four-year, $40 million deal, the right-hander went 4-6 with a 4.77 ERA last season and didn't pitch after June 27 due to rotator cuff tendinitis and associated pain in the humerus. Surgery was not recommended.

      Now, with Randy Johnson (43) and Mike Mussina (37) aging and Jaret Wright (shoulder) and Chien-Ming Wang (shoulder) with physical questions dating to last year, the Yankees need Pavano to not only supply 200-plus innings but climb into the mid-to-upper teens in victories.

      I'm more and more convinced that this guy's got some kind of psychosomatic injury issues...I think he's scared of pitching in NY.

      That article lost me when they said Pavano was likely they key to their season.

      I agree with Ben I really don't think he likes i it NY.

      That is a little surprising to me considering growing up in CT Pavano was a lifelong Yankee fan and always dreamed of pitching in the Bronx. It certainly appears that way however. He has great stuff though.


    19. 02-14-2006 11:32 AM #159
      I think a lot of it is his confidence. Being injured must make his question how strong his arm really is, which in turn might make him hold back and not him allow to trust his stuff. i feel the same way about Sturtze. Sometimes he trusts his stuff and sometimes he doesn't. You can almost see a meltdown comming if he gets behind in the count.

      More Pavano News

      Quote, originally posted by ny Post »
      February 16, 2006 -- TAMPA — Prior to the first vial of blood being drawn or groin stretched, Carl Pavano is behind schedule because of a balky back that may not be ready by Opening Day.
      Slated to throw off a mound yesterday for the first time since a minor-league rehab game last summer, Pavano didn't make it to the hill because back specialist Dr. Robert Watkins suggested Pavano not throw until March 1.

      "I talked to Dr. Watkins Saturday and we got the rehab protocol [Tuesday]," said Yankee GM Brian Cashman, who between talking to Watkins and Monday planned on having Pavano throw off a mound yesterday.

      "[Watkins] recommended not throwing off a mound for 10 days to two weeks. Carl feels fine; he is disappointed, but we have the time to make sure there are no issues."

      Pavano was sent to see Watkins in Los Angeles last week after complaining about stiffness in the lower left side of his back.

      Until Pavano can work through an exercise program designed to strengthen core muscles, he won't throw off a mound. He will continue to toss on flat ground, as he did yesterday.

      So Pavano's second year in pinstripes begins the way the first one ended: with him hurt.

      Pavano was limited to 17 games (4-6; 4.77 ERA) last year, and didn't work after June 27 due to right rotator cuff tendinitis, a problem he believes stemmed from similar back pain he is experiencing now.

      He didn't make an issue of it at that time, because he had just signed a four-year, $40 million contract. Until the back problem surfaced, the biggest question about Pavano was his shoulder that didn't require surgery.

      Now, the 30-year-old's back has put him in jeopardy of not being ready by April 3.

      "It's always a question," Torre said of Pavano being ready by Opening Day in Oakland. "You certainly don't want to get to this point of taking this much care and decide just because the season opener is coming that you have to hurry up and do something. When he is ready, we will be ready. And if it has to be after the season starts, we don't need a [fifth] starter for two weeks anyway."

      Eager to start erasing last year's nightmare, Pavano was looking forward to yesterday's bullpen session and joining Jaret Wright, Mike Mussina, Randy Johnson, Chien-Ming Wang and Shawn Chacon in Group A tomorrow for the first workout at Legends Field.

      "The plan was to throw off the mound," Pavano said, "but [Watkins'] orders were to get through some exercises and make this an ongoing thing going forward instead of going backward.

      "It shouldn't be a problem. I feel my arm strength is ahead of schedule. I think the doctor said as we advance through the exercises that will dictate. There is a certain level to get to and move forward."

      Asked if he had a timetable to return, Pavano said, "I don't think it's entirely up to me, but it's up to how I feel."

      Pavano's session was caught by bullpen coach Joe Kerrigan and observed by scout Jim Benedict, who was with the Expos when Pavano was in Montreal.

      Pavano, who predicted he would be ready for Opening Day, says he has learned from last year.

      "That's why I am taking the right approach now," Pavano said. "Last year, I wanted to impress and try to be a hero, and look where it got me. We want to make sure it's ready when it's time to go."
