Carl Pavano may be on the Rockies’ radar

Troy Renck of the Denver Post expects the Rockies to go after Carl Pavano.  If that doesn’t pan out, he thinks Plan B will be Gavin Floyd, Scott Kazmir or Kevin Millwood.

Arms race in the NL West?  Everyone just watched the Giants win it with pitching. The Dodgers, with today’s signing of Jon Garland, now sport a very nice rotation in Kershaw-Kuroda-Billingsley-Lilly-Garland.  The Padres strength is their pitching as well.  Colorado clearly believes — rightly so — that they need to keep up with the Californians.  If they can grab Pavano, and if the offense does what it should be expected to do, Colorado will be looking pretty good for next year.  If not, they may have to hope they can bash their way to the division title.

    I hope he doesn’t strain his buttocks muscle again, we all know how dangerous that can be, don’t we Carl?

    as long as he doesn’t shave the ‘stache he will be good to go. Otherwise the Rockies might get the Yankees version of Pavano.

      No one could suck as bad as the Yankees version. If we got Monty Burns to pitch he wouldn’t suck as bad as Pavano did back then. Hell, Craig wouldn’t even suck that bad!

        pavano’s deal with the yankees has gotta be up there with the all time worst deals, as far as money vs. games played based on prior performance. i can personally relate to the overpaid-and-never-played deals of the old Rays days… does ANYONE remember the horrible contracts for Wilson Alvarez, Greg Vaughn, and Vinny Castilla? Ugh.

    The Dodgers are doing ok despite the divorce. Not great, but ok. The Rockies, on the other hand, have to be more careful. One humidor malfunction and some of these guys they are looking at can give up 11 runs.

      Can’t you get fined by the FCC or someone like that for a humidor malfunction? What if they find out it’s full of cohibas? You can get hit with a bigger fine for that than if it were full of yerba buena in this political climate.

    The Rockies generously offer 3 years/$28 million. Carl takes the offer, but the ‘stache demands 6 years/$150 million. Deal falls through…
