Don't expect Pavano in the Royals rotation


Lackluster baseball "insider" Jon Heyman indicated that Carl Pavano has talked or is in talks with the Royals on a contract. The pitcher is seeking a three year deal, and I know for a fact that the Royals would not go three years. Pavano could easily become the Royals opening day starter and that could be an attractive angle for the Royals to pursue him. The Royals young and rising system is also a selling point, because for some pitchers, pitching in a "soon to be" winning environment in a small market can be very comfortable. Pavano has had his struggles in bigger markets and has shown far better performance when pitching out of the major spotlight.

I would love to see the Royals sign Pavano and Jeff Francis, because they could control both of them for a couple of years with options, and the team would have some more experience in the rotation.

I just can't see Moore and the Royals brass giving Pavano that third year. I don't think Moore wants to revisit that Meche contract, even though Meche pitched pretty well for some of it.
