Carl Pavano got more attention for being injury-plagued as a New York Yankee, but the team he played for before, the Florida Marlins, was where he was at his best.
Traded from the Montreal Expos during the 2002 Season, Pavano finished the year 3-2 with a 3.79 ERA, starting eight of his 22 Games. Pavano was a permanent starter the following year, only going 12-13 with a 4.30 ERA and helping the Marlins win the World Series. He won two Games in the playoffs, allowing only three Runs over 19.1 Innings.
Pavano followed that with his best season, going to his only All-Star Game and posting career-highs in Wins (18), ERA (3.00), Innings (222.1), and WHIP (1.174). He was sixth in Cy Young voting that year, and as mentioned above, he signed with the Yankees as a Free Agent.
With the Marlins, Pavano had a record of 33-23 with 313 Strikeouts.
