    Lilly and Garcia gone to the NL. That's good.

    Detroit Tigers news:

    The Detroit Tigers acquired left-hander Edward Campusano from the Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday for cash.

    The Tigers are expected to announce a four-year, $24 million contract with third baseman Brandon Inge, the first member of Detroit's core of younger players to be inked to a long-term deal, next week.

    The Tigers have decided not to offer a contract to outfielder Alexis Gomez, a move that opens up a roster spot for recently signed free-agent pitcher Jose Mesa.

    Wow, the SF Giants signed SP Barry Zito to a 7yr, $125 million contract. It is the largest contract ever given to a pitcher and ties newly extended Vernon Wells for the 6th largest contract in the history of the game.

    ESPN.com - MLB - Zito agrees to seven-year deal with Giants

    That is a lot of money and a lot of years for a pitcher, IMO.

    Your thoughts?

    That's stupid. Zito is very good, but he's no HOF pitcher at this point in his career. Super huge gamble.

    and Zito is now the highest payed pitcher in MLB history. Its even higher than $126 Million, after he signs he is guarunteed $133 million. And all the clauses in his contract, he can earn up to a possible $144 million!

    That's a sweet deal. Only $20 million for 3 years?

    I agree.

    He had a bit of an off year last year (injuries and traded to the NL), but he's only 30 years old and is good for 20-30 homers and 80+ RBIs a season.

    The real losers are the A's fans... this happens to them every year... I hate a system that penalizes small markets.
    One of these big spenders will strip the Tigers of their young pitchers.

    I completely agree merc. MLB is far from a level playing field. The gap between the have's and the have nots is amazing.
