Brewers out on Pavano

The Brewers had been one of the teams showing interest in free agent right-hander Carl Pavano, but the weekend trade for Royals ace Zack Greinke means Milwaukee is out of that hunt. 

“I contacted his agent and told him we were no longer in,” general manager Doug Melvin said.
The Twins, Nationals and at least one other club have been in contact with Pavano and his agent, Tom O’Connell.  
So, you can safely pencil-in left-hander Chris Narveson for that No. 5 starter spot behind right-handers Greinke, Yovani Gallardo, Shaun Marcum and lefty Randy Wolf. Greinke just met with reporters in the clubhouse at Miller Park, and I’ll pass along some of his comments shortly.

On behalf of White Sox fans everywhere, thanks for taking Zac out of the AL Central!

It turns out Pavano may be the biggest loser after the Grienke trade. By waiting for his price, his value was effectively lowered when a serious bidder dropped out.
