No Yankee fan thinks too highly of Carl Pavano these days. While Pavano has managed to make three starts in a row for the first time since 2005, Yankee fans generally feel that he took the team for a ride. But what if he didn’t? What if he’s a tragic figure? That’s the question Tyler Kepner poses and attempts to answer in today’s Times. Pavano certainly should be blamed for his injuries, but maybe there’s a sympathetic side to this tale as well.
