Carl Pavano on Trading Block??

Postby BronXBombers51 » Sun Oct 30, 2005 2:45 pm

According to the New York Daily News, there will be "numerous clubs" interested in taking Carl Pavano if the Yankees are willing to eat a portion of his contract.
Pavano's right shoulder just couldn't handle the pressure of performing in New York, so it's possible he'll be shipped off. It would have been more likely if the Yankees had a shot at Daisuke Matsuzaka. The Yankees aren't expected to pursue starting pitching now, but Matsuzaka was someone they would have targeted had the Seibu Lions made him available. Oct. 30 - 1:23 pm et

Depending on how much money the Yankees would need to eat, I'd like this very much. What teams might be interested in Carl and how big of a chance is there of this happening?

I'm sure the Brewers would love to have him if the Yanks eat alot of hsi contract. Maybe for Brady Clark?

I don't see the wisdom in paying another team to take a talented and relatively young pitcher like him just to save a couple bucks. You gain nothing in doing so; you risk him pitching well again and take away depth because as this yr showed us, you can never have too many starters.

They'd obviously get something in return and they'd only eat a small portion of his contract. They wouldn't be paying him to pay for someone else.

It won't be the Brew Crew then, because they definitely wouldn't pick up much of that 10 mil per contract.

If Pavano goes and the Yankees have to eat some of the contract, they'd better get top talent back. Maybe the Marlins will be willing to part with Pierre to get back their star? :-D

this could be a way for the yanks to correct a bad signing. i think we could replenish some of the farm if we deal him away.
