Carl Pavano

Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post reports that the Nationals are one of “six or eight” teams to have engaged in discussions with Carl Pavano. Kilgore says that they met with Pavano’s agent at the GM meetings this week.

I wouldn’t read too much into the Nats specifically, because they tend to say that they’re interested in everyone.  They never quite seem to seal the deal on these things, however.  And there is competition here, as Kilgore says that six or eight teams are interested in Pavano.  Which makes sense to me, because he — and not Jorge De La Rosa — is the second best pitcher available in my view.

    I still can’t see why there much hype at all for De La Roaster. Pavano, on the other hand, is the man and wears awesome facial hair so what’s not to like?

    I forwarded your comments to Brian Cashman. He says “To hell with Lee, I’m going after this guy, maybe he’ll give me a home town discount”.
    Pavavo will then sign with the Universe, pitch three innings, and fall off the number 7 train.

    Pavano, should be put in jail for stealing from the Yankees. I pity the next team that signs him. His standard operating procedure. A good year going into FA then he suffers some mysterious malady and is out for the bulk of his new contract.

    If any team offers this guy a contract of more than one year, they better be prepared to install a recliner in the dugout with automatic electric massage unit built in.
    Pavano is really bitchy when nursing questionable physical ailments on a pine bench.
