Doogie: Twins Meeting With Carl Pavano
I'm sure he is one of many starting pitchers that the Twins are talking to, but I would welcome him back with open arms. Don't talk to me about 2012 - he was hurt and the whole things was terribly mismanaged. To me, 220+ innings in 2010 & 2011 with a 4ish ERA speaks louder. Plus, he'll likely be cheap ($4m?) due to last year's cluster.
"While it's likely Carl Pavano's Twins career is over, his agent will be meeting with the Twins in Nashville. Pavano was given full medical clearance on his shoulder recently."
(Tangent: Ironically, maybe the Twins medical staff will save the Twins some money this time. It could be a new strategy. Destroy a guy's value through mismanagement of his medical and then re-sign him at half the price. It could work for arbitration-eligible guys, too.)
