Pavano: I need surgery

Carl Pavano spoke after the game and is confused why the Yankees are insisting he visit Dr. Lewis Yocum in California on Wednesday.

According to Pavano, he has been told he has a ligament tear and needs Tommy John surgery.

Brian Cashman says only that the Yankees are getting additional opinions. But Joe Torre mentioned a throwing program the other day, so perhaps the Yankees are intent on trying to get something out of the Rajah of Rehab before he returns to the disabled list.

Cut your losses at this point. They chucked $39.95 million on this guy. Collect the insurance, let him have surgery and be done with him. It’s hard to blame Cashman. Plenty of teams wanted Pavano when he was a free agent. Who knew?
