ESPN strays with Carl Pavano and Jim 'Longborg'

No wonder the Bosox snapped the Yankees' winning streak Sunday night. Bad karma.

Loyal reader Mrs. Final Score, er, Rieber, noticed something peculiar when ESPN displayed the Yanks' defensive alignment. At pitcher, it listed . . . Carl Pavano? Yikes.

Pavano, Ponson. Whatever. Hard to keep those P names straight.

It was a tough night overall for the ESPN graphics guy or gal. In the eighth, the Worldwide Leader spelled Jim Lonborg's name Jim "Longborg."

Play-by-play man Jon Miller alertly corrected the mistake.
