Carl Pavano: Schadenfreude

Supposedly Carl Pavano late of The Evil Empire now with The Tribe is healthy and throwing well.
Which brings up some very strong feelings for this Red Sox fan, chiefly:
satisfaction or pleasure felt at someone else's misfortune.
Origin: 1890–95; < G, equiv. to Schaden harm + Freude joy
Is it wrong to hope that he has 23 wins this season and wins the AL CY Young? Is it wrong to hope that he faces the Yankees everytime the Indians play them and shuts them out each time, maybe even no hits them or Heaven help us tosses a perfect game? The thought of the EE afficion's anguish is delicious, simply delicious.
