Not much new news on the Yankees front this weekend.
The Viz’s agent said it looks like he is moving on and has three-year offers from other teams. Unless it’s a closer, giving any reliever three years is madness.
Carl Pavano will probably be released (and paid off) once the Yankees add A-Rod or Mo Rivera to the roster. He will leave having made $39.95 million for 19 starts and 111.1 innings. It will go down as one of the all-time mistakes in team history. But the Tigers, Red Sox and several other teams wanted to make the same move.
You know what the worse thing is? He will be 33 when his deal with the Yankees is over and somebody will sign him. That’s how few pitchers there are.
Other than that, it has been slow since we left Nashville. Even GMs, it seems, need some time to rest.
