Pavano still asking three years

Posted on: December 26, 2010 2:30 pm

PavanoCarl Pavano is still on the free-agent market, but that hasn't changed his demands.

The Boston Globe's Nick Cafardo reveals that Pavano continues to ask for a three-year deal in light of such contemporaries as Ted Lilly receiving one as well.

As the last remaining starting pitcher on the free-agent market that could make an immediate impact, the market will heat up with the Twins remaining in the hunt along with the Nationals and Rangers. The Mariners could also contend for his services provided the club can free up money.

It's tough to see Pavano getting three years if he has yet to. He will likely have to settle for a two-year commitment with a possible vesting option for a third season.

Pavano still asking three years

The Nationals seem like the only team among those listed that has been willing to overpay for free agent talent in the last few years. The Twins will be just as happy to sit back with their existing five starters plus Kyle Gibson and wait to see if Pavano runs out of options.

Pavano still asking three years

Lilly is worth the three year deal he received, Pavano is not worthy of one. He had one decent year in maybe 5-6 yrs and he expects a 3 yr deal? Maybe a one year deal, with an option or two. This smells of one lucky team getting stuck with an overpaid mediocre pitcher. There's already too many of those in MLB. Good luck to the winning sucker in this sweepstakes!!
