Some guys come back from arm trouble. Some guys come back after a premature retirement. Carl Pavano is trying to come back from a ruptured friggin’ spleen. An injury that, though I was fully aware of it at the time, I apparently blocked out of my memory because, man, that sounded awful. Indeed, it could have killed him.

Anyway, after a year off — and, it must be noted a year before that of highly ineffective pitching — Pavano is thinking comeback.
