ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Carl Pavano decided Saturday he wanted to pitch for the Yankees, and his agent and New York closed in on a four-year contract worth about $39 million.
What remains to be seen is how Pavano will fare under the glaring lights of Broadway, and the glare of the Boss from the owner's box. He's also obviously not too bright, since he managed to let a relationship with Alyssa Milano go by the wayside.
2 words of caution #1 Yankee fan Headache..."Javier Vasquez"
We'll see.

As for the Boomer deal, the contract is based largely on # of starts, so there isn't too much financial risk for the Sox, if Wells stays healthy, he's a solid guy for your #4 position (assuming Pedro re-ups and Nelson De La Rosa can be the 3rd starter).

makes sense to me, figured you'd have heard it on EEI. the sox were busy haggling over 1 million with pedro and then the mets just offered him the 4th year he wanted, not at all surprised by it.

i think this just makes it all the more likely boston signs renteria and trades for aj burnett.

and should boston sign renteria from st louis, jocketty had better well acquire hudson, because if they don't all they do this offseason is downgrade everywhere.

You can say that again. I am listening to the Fatman and Fruitloops and they had this information since 1:00 pm but just announced @ 3:30pm

As a Met Fan, I surely hope they don't sign him even though they would have a pretty good staff in April 05..........Glavine, Traschel, Zambrano, Martinez......Headache, who am I missing here?

Over-under on first Schilling-Wells matter-antimatter explosion: May 23.

Pavano's definitely a better investment than Wells, but I'm not all that impressed with him. NL/defensive park/contract year performance last year/etc.

With all this money the Sox saved by not signing Pavano and Pedro, they damn well better resign Varitek and get Matt Clement.

Otherwise, RSN will experience one massive collective hangover in April. It'll be like going to bed with Sharon Stone in 1992 and waking up next to Sharon Stone now.

while down the line it may be a terrible move for new york, right now it's great. switching to the nl should help him, along with not having to pitch against the yankees if anything more than twice this year. pedro, glavine, benson, zambrano, trachsel will actually be pretty good. should reyes stay healthy, matsui play well, wright develop.... the mets may just be good. but they need a bullpen.
