We all know Carl Pavano is probably going to sign with the Twins, but for some reason the process is taking forever. Well, it looks like our wait might be over soon, as Joe Christensen of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports the Twins expect an answer from the right-hander early next week.

There have been concerns Minnesota might not be able to spring for both Pavano and Jim Thome, but with the Twins bringing Thome back at a somewhat reasonable $3 million and no recent chatter about anyone else actively pursuing Pavano, it looks like he'll be back at Target Field.
