Pavano has had one good year.. and a bunch of bad ones. He's OK, but an ERA around 4+ is likely. His HR are going to shoot up big time from last year, and his WHIP will probably be 1.3+ as well.
As for the "gutless"
Javier Vazquez, his talent has NEVER been an issue. He's a great K pitcher, and has had excellent control throughout his career. Yet, you tout Pavano as being better. Next year when you're calling Pavano a gutless one-year-wonder, who will the new star be? I suppose it'll be the one George signs, right?
