Complete interview with Pags, and a look at Dunn

By

Last week we ran the highlights of Fack Youk’s interview with Mike Pagliarulo. Matt, who does some damn fine work over there, asked Pags a ton more questions, and has the full interview up at FY. For some lunchtime reading, you can check out Part One, which mostly focuses on Pags’s days playing with the Yanks, and Part Two, which is more about Pags post-Yankees and post-playing days. Aside from his weak acquittal from the Igawa incident, I’d say it’s a good read.

If you, as I, enjoy the fine work at Fack Youk, you can also take a look at Matt’s recent look at Mike Dunn. The kid has promise for sure, though we’ve seen his weakness exposed from the get go. With two option years remaining, he’ll have time to work it out.

    I liked the Bruney comps.

    Will Eiland and maybe a guy like Nardi work with Dunn this offseason, similar to Long With Robby this past winter?

  2. That Pags answer on the Kei Igawa question is still priceless. A priceless steaming pile of B.S., that is.

    Better chance?

    Mike Dunn on the team for more than half the season next year OR Adam Dunn taking Matsui’s spot in the line up?

    BTW, on Mike Dunn, I know he has looked bad, but don’t forget that he is a converted outfielder. I suspect he pitches at AAA next year, but he has some upside as a hard throwing lefty, although it may take a while to get the control issues in check.
