Jays resign CF Vernon Wells to a 7yr, $126 million extension ESPN.com - MLB - Jays sign Wells to $126 million, seven-year extension All I can say is THANK GOD!! I thought he was going to bolt for Texas next year.
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!
The Orioles continue to be active this offseason, reportedly signing 3B Aubrey Huff to a 3 yr, $20 million contract. ESPN.com - MLB - Report: Orioles strike three-year, $20M deal with Huff
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.
