I just read this article about what Carl Pavano was up to. Apparently, he's injured. These were his inspiring words about returning from his injury:
"This is not something that I plan on rushing just to get back and prove that I can get back and be healthy. I want to feel good about myself when I get back, not just get back."
Translation: Don't expect him back.
Pavano's agent has some pretty big expectations about the kind of contract he's going to make in 2009:
"Carl's a 1-2 starter," O'Connell said. "Those guys don't grow on trees. Those guys are very rare, 200-inning guys are very rare in this game, and they're the ones that make the money."
200-innings? Seriously? He hasn't thrown 200 innings in the last 3 years combined. No one's going to sign him long term, and no one's going to give him 1-2 starter money.
