So whats the deal with Marlins pitcher Carl Pavano?
They have offered him a $21 million deal for three years but it looks like other teams are trying to step in. It looks like he has had talks with the
Braves and the Mets, but the Phillies have an offer on the table.
Saying that none of these team could get him as the favourites to land him is the Red Sox. He has had talks but no offer has been made. With a meeting
scheduled for today with the Yankees, they might not him slip out of their grasp.
Or will the fat cats get him with a bumper deal and land him at the stinking Yankees.
watch for pedro to head over to new york and watch pavano end up with the sox, i'm thinking a 4 or 5 year contract. i'm sure lowe will be gone too,
but i'm not sure who the sox will replace him with yet.
well the yanks will go out and buy pitching, but i think pavano has a relationship with schilling, and i just think that the yanks are gonna pursue
pedro hard, and probably get him, which gives the red sox money to go after pavano with a decently long contract. we'll see what happens. i'd much
rather have pavano than pedro.
My guess is that the Yanks will hope to drive up Pedro's price to make life difficult for the Sox. I don't think that will work anymore. Lucchino
and Epstein probably have a take it or leave figure in mind and won't get into a bidding war. Ultimately I think Pedro will stay in Boston. I am not
sure if they can afford Pavano as well. The real question in Boston is Varitek.
