The Pavano news is bad. He had been throwing on the side, and got up on the mound on Sunday, but though the team kept saying he was getting better, he didn't seem so optimistic. He is going to see Dr. James Andrews in Alabama and may, in fact, need Tommy John surgery, which would finish him for this season and probably next season,too, possibly ending is career.
"It's getting ridiculous, the team needs me," Pavano said. "It's frustrating for all of us."
This is now hilarious. I don't even know what to say. I guess it's safe to drop Pavano if you, for some reason, had him stashed on your bench.
