Pavano files for free agency, thousands take to streets of Manhattan to celebrate

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on Nov 05, 2008 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

8-29crowdfills.jpegAt long last, is our nightmare over? Carl Pavano filed for free agency today.

Don’t let the door hit you on the way out, Carl, you might get bruised.

The Big G, Mike Mussina and Damaso Marte (provisionally) also filed.

Now before you get all “Hey, Mussina filed” it’s just a formality. Players have until Nov. 14 to file or otherwise they lose that right.

    Pete I think I can see you in that picture.Right up front.

  2. Doreen November 5th, 2008 at 6:00 pm

    Very funny, Pete. :)

  3. Joe from Long Island November 5th, 2008 at 6:01 pm

    Great post to read at the end of a long day….

  4. S.A.-Looking forward to 2009 and show CC the money (and food)! November 5th, 2008 at 6:03 pm

    What does that banner in the picture say? “We say NO to The _____ Agendas?” Just testing out the eyes. :P

    Oh Carl, wherever you go, make sure you bring a first aid kit.

  5. AG November 5th, 2008 at 6:04 pm

    But if he were 100% sure he’s going to retire and is planning to announce it within the next few days, why would he even bother? Logically, it doesn’t make sense to me.

    My gut feeling is still that he won’t be back, if only because the entire media agrees on that point, but I wonder if he really has finalized his decision.

  6. Tom ( you can't be neutral on a moving train) November 5th, 2008 at 6:09 pm

    His parade should end at the Fresh Kills Landfill.

  7. vinny-b (Hank Blalock for 1st base) November 5th, 2008 at 6:11 pm

    Pavano will go to FL Marlins, on a strict incentive deal

  8. 213 Area Code November 5th, 2008 at 6:14 pm

    Finally. Thankfully. Somewhere Danny Tartabull & Don Gullett are smiling, secure in the knowledge that the label of biggest NYY FA bust is no longer theirs. RIP Idle.

  9. Tom ( you can't be neutral on a moving train) November 5th, 2008 at 6:14 pm

    Pettitte wants two years?
    http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/.....ookin.html

  10. West side November 5th, 2008 at 6:18 pm

    Pavano – 4 yr/$15 million dollar deal with the Marlins
    Marte – 3 yr deal with the Cardinals for $12 million
    Giambi – 2 yrs/$16 mil with the A’s
    Pettitte – 2 yrs/$14 million with the Astros
    Pudge – 2 yr/$15 million dollar deal with Mets
    Ponson – 1 yr/$6 million dollar deal from the Brewers

  11. AJ YANKS November 5th, 2008 at 6:20 pm

    If Andy wants 2 years, then as Michael Kay would say…. SEEE YAA!!!

  12. S.o.S.27-THAT ONE!!! November 5th, 2008 at 6:22 pm

    “But if he were 100% sure he’s going to retire and is planning to announce it within the next few days, why would he even bother?”

    Maybe he bought the tape “The flip flop secrets of retiring” by Clemens and Favre.

  13. bru November 5th, 2008 at 6:26 pm

    pettitte 2 yrs 20 million or hit the road.

    we probably need sabathia but 24-30 million dollars a year for 6 or 7 years worries me.

    the yankees should probably sign him because to compete they need an ace otherwise i would pass.

    they should try hard for dempster instead of burnett or lowe.

    burnett will be a huge dissappointment.

    sabathia
    wang
    dempster
    pettitte
    joba with hughes,acevez,giese relieving joba is a decent rotation.

    they also need a real first baseman.centerfield is not that big of a problem with damon,melky,gardner,christian,ajax.

    they should survive in center for now.

    a first baseman is needed and the angels won’t give tex up easily.

    sign sabathia,tex,dempster and i like our chances.

  14. saucy November 5th, 2008 at 6:27 pm

    If Andy wants 2, I see no problem with that. Would’nt go any more than that, however..

  15. Tom ( you can't be neutral on a moving train) November 5th, 2008 at 6:35 pm

    Happy Guy Fawkes Day!

    Remember remember the fifth of November
    Gunpowder, treason and plot.
    I see no reason why gunpowder, treason
    Should ever be forgot…

  16. bru November 5th, 2008 at 6:36 pm

    why aren’t the yankees interested in dempster.

    he is exactly what they need,a solid innings eater,maybe more.

    if they keep playing with burnett they are going to get burned.

  17. Phil November 5th, 2008 at 6:37 pm

    1 year for Andy should be the top offer from the Yanks.

  18. Tseng November 5th, 2008 at 6:37 pm

    Why would we have Phil relieving… we want to build up his inning totals.

  19. JimM November 5th, 2008 at 6:50 pm

    213 Area Code
    November 5th, 2008 at 6:14 pm
    Finally. Thankfully. Somewhere Danny Tartabull & Don Gullett are smiling, secure in the knowledge that the label of biggest NYY FA bust is no longer theirs. RIP Idle.

    ———————–

    I wouldn’t say Gullett was a bust. He had one terrific season in a two season deal. In the second year, he was injured. How does that make him a bust?

  20. JimM November 5th, 2008 at 6:59 pm

    not to beleaguer the topic, but I would think Steve Karsey is more relieved than either Tartabull or Gullett.

  21. Mark in Tampa November 5th, 2008 at 7:08 pm

    “not to beleaguer the topic, but I would think Steve Karsey is more relieved than either Tartabull or Gullett.”

    Anybody remember Steve Kemp? He wasn’t even injured, as I remember, but he played like it.

  22. jennifer November 5th, 2008 at 7:09 pm

    So thats why all those people were in Times Square last night. :)

  23. trisha - Mike Mussina is still in my 2009 starting rotation November 5th, 2008 at 7:14 pm

    I’m not going to lie to you. The more Moose talk there is – or the more Moose hasn’t retired – the more psyched I get. Being an optimist by nature, I reason that there would be no reason for Moose to file for free agency if he was sure he was going to retire.

  24. JRVJ November 5th, 2008 at 7:15 pm

    Pete,

    Unless you’ve had an off-the-record conversation with Moose, Tellem or someone truly in the know, I will go by the saying of that esteemed Pennsylvanian (just like Moose) Ben Franklin, who said that neither a fortress nor a maidenhead will hold out long after they begin to Parlay.

    (i.e. Moose is coming back).

  25. JimM November 5th, 2008 at 7:15 pm

    Anybody remember Steve Kemp? He wasn’t even injured, as I remember, but he played like it.

    ——————

    True! I forgot that he was a free agent as well… I’m sure there are many other who will reset easier now that the Idol saga has ended. I would argue he’s the worst NYY Free agent signing. But is he the worst of all time? Worst than the Rangers signing of Justin Thompson,which I believe might be the worst of all time?

  26. Knute Rockne November 5th, 2008 at 7:24 pm

  27. Johnny D. November 5th, 2008 at 7:25 pm

    Why is this worth posting? As you said, it’s just a formality that everyone eligible does.

  28. Lambchop Louie November 5th, 2008 at 7:34 pm

    - – - – - – - – - – - –
    Dumping him off in Far Rockaway or Bed-Stuy would be just as good.

  29. Mark Alan November 5th, 2008 at 9:35 pm

    Johnny…

    Why is this worth posting, as Pet said “it’s just a formality”? Pete used that description for Moose’s filing; Pavano’s is something entirely different. Carl Pavano was paid a lot of money to get hurt. He liked getting hurt, and the most egregious example, I think, was his Florida Porsche accident in 2006.

    Pavano obviously wanted the check but not the work in Pinstripes.

    Good riddance. See ya, wouldn’t want to be ya.

  30. EricNS November 5th, 2008 at 10:39 pm

    Maybe Pavano will go to Japan and pitch there.
