• Carl Pavano 2009

    Carl Pavano the Yankee was not the same pitcher as Carl Pavano the Marlin, was he?

    Coming back from Tommy John surgery, this past season, Pavano allowed an OPS of .842 facing 154 big league batters in 2008. At this point, you have to question both his skill and desire. Good luck to any team who signs Pavano as a free agent in 2009.

    Actually, strike that. Any team who is stupid enough to sign Pavano, at this stage of his career, deserves whatever should happen to them as a result of giving him a contract.

      At this point? :p

      He’s been like this in the Expos & Marlins organization.

      Having said that, I believe Pavano will find somewhere to pitch in 2009; there will be an organization that will take a flyer on him.

      Methinks he’ll go back to the NL

      I think we fans are owed a ‘Carl Pavano: All Access’ book about his time on the Yankees. I want quotes from players, coaches, trainers, and doctors. Obviously, most players and coaches (and fans) felt that all he did was drag his ass for 4 years here. He never worked hard enough during rehab and he concealed injuries. I wonder if trainers and doctors would say that there was little he could do. Maybe if he worked harder he could have pitched a handful more games. I want to know the full story of Carl Pavano as a Yankee. I want it unadulterated.

      And I hope the door does hit him on the way out.
