Props to Pavano

Recommended Posts

No prospective free-agent pitcher has done more to help himself this season than Florida's Carl Pavano. The Marlins are 12-2 when he starts. And compare his numbers with Roger Clemens:


ERA -- Clemens 2.84, Pavano 2.88

Opponents batting avg. -- Clemens .222, Pavano .224

Opponents slugging pct. -- Clemens .356, Pavano .354


But before people start dreaming of Pavano as the No. 1 starter he was once projected to be when Boston traded him for Pedro Martinez, one NL front-office man says: "What he really is, is a great No. 3 or No. 4. He's pitching now like a No. 1 or 2, but that's because he doesn't have to be a No. 1 or 2 in that rotation."

That's putting Pavano is some elite company when he starts getting compared to the Rocket.
