From Jim B at Newsday -
The Cardinals have asked to view Carl Pavano’s expansive medical records, according to a report in yesterday’s St. Louis Post-Dispatch, a sign that the Yankees might be able to get out from under that albatross of a contract.
The Rockies previously expressed interest in the righthander, but talks broke down because they wanted the Yankees to eat most of the $22.95 million left in the final two years of his four-year, $39.95-million deal, a person familiar with the talks said.
Finances figure to be an obstacle in potential talks with the Cardinals, making it far more likely that Pavano will have to prove his health by pitching regularly during spring training to increase his trade value.
Just watch, Dave Duncan will get him to win the 2007 N.L. Cy Young now….
