As Peter Abraham reports, this afternoon the clubhouse TV in Texas was afixed to ESPN, and Steve Phillips prattling on about how Alex should be traded. This, mind you, with Alex standing right in front of the tv, and nevermind that everyone in the universe has said this isn’t going to happen, and by the way shouldn’t. Also, according to Abraham, “Carl Pavano has accelerated his rehab program. He now goes down to the lobby to get the pizza instead of having it brought up to his room.” Yuk Yuk Yuk. Damon remains out and on Doans, which means your lineup tonight will look like this:
The Giambino DH
On the hill, it will be Mike Mussina (11-3, 3.39) vs. Adam Eaton, late of the San Diego Padres, and longtime resident of the Texas DL. We’re hoping for the best.
