    Smart move. This way they can bring up Pavano when the fans are in a riot about blowing the Mauer negotiations.

        Ben Sheets signs with Oakland for one year, $10 mil, plus incentives. That's a lot of money for a guy whose biggest win total for a season is 13.

            Obviously the Yankees did not have enough money to get him. Maybe you shouldn't have spent it all on losers like Sabathia.

                It's actually up to $10M w/ incentives. And kinda smart on his part. The A's just want to trade him at the deadline, so Sheets will be on a contender in August instead of on a bad Mets team. And the A's will probably only pay about $5M, max, and get some good prospects.

                  Interesting, had not thought of it that way. But when he gets hurt, no one is going to want him, and Oakland will be stuck.

                  edit: where did you see up to $10 mil? Everything I have seen says 10 plus incentives.

                    Your salary was correct, the site I was using updated to it.

                        Tim Lincecum's arbitration hearing is today. Giants filed for $8 mil, he filed for $13 mil. Should be interesting. I think it'd be pretty hard to come up with reasons he's only worth $8 million, when you look at other pitchers' salaries. I don't think $13 million is outlandish (relatively) for someone who has won the Cy Young in both seasons he's pitched in the majors.

                          I can't believe the Giants didn't settle and they're actually going to a hearing. $13's going to be cheap compared to what it's going to cost to keep him in 3 years if he keeps this up.

                            I highly doubt that arbitration hearing will take place.

                              The Giants would be stupid not to settle - I really do not think they would win. But hey, Corey Hart won his hearing... so who knows what could happen?

                                2 years, $23 mil for Lincecum.
