Pavano definitely over-performed last year. That's not to say he's not a good pitcher, but last year he pitched like an Ace. He's a good third maybe second starter, but not an Ace. The yankees grossly overpayed for him. Plus he's a contact pitcher with a bunch of geriatrics behind him. I haven't watched Pavs at all this year, so I don't know what his defense has looked like, but there's no way that the Yankees are as strong behind him as we were. So that could add to his runs. Beinfest4Prez is right too, he's in the biggest pressure cooker of the sports world and the team's struggling. In Miami he was used to people barely knowing the Marlins existed, and now he's in New York where every game is an even. Hopefully he can come around and pitch better as the year progresses and through his contract.

Pavano is in a new league, he needs to adjust to the hitters, parks, etc. just like Delgado had to do with the Marlins.

 

Pavano is also pitching under a lot of pressure, keep in mind its Yankee stadium, and he is expected to pitch lights out every time. Take Randy Johnson for example, a Hal of Fame pitcher getting ripped almost every game. Its a different ballgame there...

Slow down everybody, he had 2 good starts in a row until this last one. He has had some really impressive starts with the Yankees, the problem with Pavano's stats is that he'll have some god awful games. And I mean horrible ones. 1 out of every 3 of his starts will have a line similar to 4 IP 12 H 6 ER.

 

While that's not really something to be proud of, because 2 out of those 3 are great starts, it leaves fans with hope that maybe he can start putting it all together for all of his starts.

I believe Pavano will turn it around... this season, when he pitches well, he does so in back to back games atleast... he has a few ND with a good 6 ip, 1 er performance, as well as 10 hits and 5 er in 5 innings..... I have a feeling he would be dominate throughout the playoffs like he was in 2003, and how Lieber was the Yankees best P last year in the playoffs. When the entire team is in high spirits and on a winning role, Pavano will heat up. This last game vs the Cubs, he blew, and a few plays could have helped him out last night. He will do better

Gag me with a spoon Fritz.

 

Thats ridiculous and an overreaction, you call this season a tank job? He's had several VERY GOOD starts that I can think of off the top of my head. Is he posting a 2.50 ERA? No. But this is far from a tank job - it's just an average job.

Pavano had a career year with the Marlins last season. And I knew that his numbers would go down when we gave him up to the Yankees, and I think the main cause of that is the immense amount of pressure on all the players who perform in Yankee uniforms. (Of coarse it's harder to pitch when you don't get a free out every 9 batters, but still, that's not THAT big of a factor IMO)

 

I think if we get Pavano back, or any team gets Pavano that don't put so much pressure on their players to perform, then he can be a quality #2 starter. Pavano isn't as good as he seemed to be last year with us, but he's not as bad as his numbers show with the Yankees this season.
