Cashman: No Interest in Pavano deal

According to the Yankee GM, there willn likely not be a Carl Pavano trade this offseason:

Cashman said the Yankees had no interest in trading Pavano, even though he has three years remaining on a four-year, $39.95 million contract that looked like a waste of money last season. Pavano seemed uneasy with his surroundings in spring training, then went 4-6 with a 4.77 earned run average before the Yankees shut him down at midseason with a shoulder injury.

"We signed him for a reason," Cashman said. "Carl Pavano didn't succeed in New York his first year because of an injury. Physically, he wasn't right. When he's physically healthy and ready to go, we expect to see the pitcher we signed."

Bear in mind, however, that is Cashman were shopping Pavano, he'd deny it anyway because if he doesn't find a deal he likes he hasn't further alienated a player, and when you make a statement that you're trading a guy the asking price goes way down.
