• Torre Lays It Out For Pavano

    Posted by on September 22nd, 2006 · Comments (3)

    From the Times:

    To the Yankees, getting in shape is the least Pavano can do. Torre made it clear that he expected nothing less.

    “I’m not accusing him of anything, but baseball has got to be his life,” Torre said. “He’s got to live his life that way and come to spring training and be ready from day one.”

    Just about 5 months until “Day 1” 2007. I don’t think Pavano can make it.

      Here’s Pavano’s deal:

      2005: $9M
      2006: $8M
      2007: $10M
      2008: $11M
      2009: $13M club option or $1.95M buyout

      Pavano may void option by reaching appearance levels (200 IP in 2008 or 400 IP 2007-08). He also had a no-trade clause.

      How does George not have a coterie of button men over at Patsies who’ve been waiting their whole lives for an assignment like this?

      In addition to the $8 mil this year, he’s entitled to full playoff shares because he’s been on the DL. Nice.
