Carl Pavano vs. the Texas Rangers today. 1 inning pitched. 9 ER. 6 hits.
According to Cot's Baseball Contracts, Pavano gets an extra $100,000 for reaching 130 innings pitched, among many other qualifiers in his incentive-laden contract.
Congrats to Carl for getting his 2009 started. Only 129 more innings to go buddy.
Just kidding. He's never going to get there. He's never going to reach any of his incentive numbers.
I know, it's a snap judgment, but when do we put Carl Pavano alongside Masa on the "released/optioned" pool?
