How about this for a releif option...

Just throwing this out there, and I'm sure even if it works it won't work for long, Carl Pavano.

He threw for 12 minutes today going from as far as 90 feet. Clearly, if he doesn't get hurt during rehab (about 80% chance he does get hurt), he would be ready during the season.

He'd be ready quicker as a relief pitcher (which I'm hoping they'll do with Humberto Sanchez as well). As a reliever it also should take him longer to get hurt. If he's able to pitch 15 innings before getting injured, that would be in his 3rd start. However, if he makes it 15 innings as a reliever, if he's effective, the Yankees could have a very good reliever for a month.
