Funny Carl Pavano Story..............

Postby AussieDodger » Sat Feb 16, 2008 10:36 pm

From http://yankees.lhblogs.com/2008/02/16/the-only-pavano-post-of-the-spring-promise/

Carl Pavano is in camp. He has to be because he’s on the 40-man roster. The Yankees asked him to accept a payoff on the final year of his deal then take a minor-league contract and he refused.
Pavano had surgery last June and almost certainly won’t be ready to pitch until 2009. He’ll be somebody else’s problem then.

To say Pavano is a pariah is an understatement. He asked one of the clubhouse kids for a small box today to store some things he had in his locker. The kid went over to a garbage pail, fished out an orange Nike shoebox, dumped a half-eated sandwich out of it and handed it to Pavano.
None the wiser, the “American Idle” (as the Post calls him), put it in his locker.
When the clubbies hand you garbage, that’s a sign your team has had enough of you.


Not too shabby (if true).

Do you read Peter Abraham? I wouldn't think you would subject yourself to a Yankee blog. :-o His blog is very good I've found, he has a lot of day to day information from the Yankee camp.

No, I just found it now linked off mlbtraderumors.com.
He was answering questions in the comments section, which makes him more interesting then some other blogs I've seen.
I don't think I'd mind reading this one every so often ;-D
