Carl Pavano To Accept Arbitration

6:32pm: La Velle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune agrees – he says Pavano will accept arbitration tonight.  Rosenthal says it's 99% certain.

11:33am: Rosenthal says Pavano is likely to accept the Twins' arbitration offer.

9:28am: Carl Pavano's agent Tom O'Connell "pressed the Twins on multi-year contract possibilities in their Sunday night meeting," tweets Yahoo's Tim Brown.  We'll know by the end of the day whether Pavano will accept the Twins' arbitration offer, on which he was said to be undecided by Ken Rosenthal.

By tallying 199.3 innings and 33 starts between the Indians and Twins, Pavano ended up earning $4.35MM in 2009.  Fair or not, after the Yankees debacle, any team giving Pavano multiple years is going to be the subject of some derision.  La Velle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune says the Twins "aren't too fired up" about giving Pavano two years.
