• Carl Pavano Speaks

    From the Courant:

    Pavano appeared uncomfortable with the large number of reporters following the Yankees, something the front office hopes will improve.

    “I don’t think any [off the field issues] held him back,” Cashman said. “It was all because he was hurt.”

    As Pavano struggled, he was also adjusting to life as a high-profile New Yorker, a radical change from his previous addresses, including Southington, Montreal and Miami.

    “That was a big adjustment for me, learning how to get around in the city,” Pavano said. “I’m a lot more comfortable with that now.”

    OK, the reporters are one thing. But, this is a guy who dated TV stars – and had the media spotlight before with that. And, Miami is a big/hopping city too (just warmer than NYC). Sounds like excuses to me.

      look at the numbers. He just wasn’t that good to begin with. People looking for an ace will be sorely disappointed. Pavano’s a middle of the rotation starter at best. League average maybe…
