Pavano Gulp

Business Insider's sports page:

In his 13 years, Pavano has played four seasons in which he was a free agent at the end of the year (2004, 2008, 2009, 2010). In those seasons Pavano is 53-33 with a 4.01 ERA and a 3.10 strikeout-to-walk ratio (3.00 is considered very good).In the other nine seasons, Pavano is a combined 44-56 with a 4.62 ERA and a pedestrian 2.22 strikeout-to-walk ratio. In fact, of those nine seasons, he has one year in which he never pitched in the big leagues (2006) and only one season with more than 8 wins or more than 140 innings pitched. And yet, in the four seasons heading into free agency, he has averaged 13.3 wins and 169 innings pitched.
Guess that means Pavano's in line for a stellar 2012.
