Cards give Carp an extension, 5 years 65 million. 5 years is a long time, but Carp should be worth it

he's worth it and its necessary to lock him up and reward him for the past two seasons. plus at the current rate - compared to what zito will land i believe texas offered 6 years 100+ million- it is a bargain. the 5 years is a bit worrysome ,but at least he's not going anywhere.

the only thing that confuses me is we had him under control for 2 more years, why not just wait until next offseason to make sure he is still ok?

but, i do love me some Carp

the money being tossed around this year is utterly ridiculous. owners are just stupid. they complain and complain about how they can't compete and how they're losing money... so selig actually does a good job, gets a good deal for the owners with tv and revenue sharing, etc. attendance goes up, the owners have a few bucks again, and they start throwing it around like little kids in a candy store... except for, amazingly enough, the mets and yankees, who've been quite frugal this off-season (for now).

gary matthews jr. makes one good catch and he gets 10 mill a year... vincente padilla just got an outrageous deal from texas, and the cubs, after giving a ton of money to aramis ramirez and soriano, may actually try to get zito, too.

in 3 years when everyone's complaining about how no one can compete with the yankees/mets/red sox again, just remember the asinine contracts signed this off-season.

Suddenly the Red Sox extending Josh Beckett at 10 mil/season looks like a bargain (assuming he gets his ERA below 5)

Let's see Zito's character....Does he go to Texas for a bazillion dollars and end up 15-12 w/ an ERA hovering around 5.00 and finish in 3rd place

OR

Does he come to a winning situation (The Mets), reunite w/ his old pitching coach, for a little less than a bazillion dollars, have an ERA around 3.50, and have a decent shot of going deep into the playoffs/world series


Boras is the antichrist.

If Zito goes to Texas, he doesn't give a shit about winning. If he goes to the Mets he does. Plain and simple.

exactly.

The other thing is, the players union HATES it when players sign deals for lower money than they were offered elsewhere. So I'm sure Zito is feeling pressure there as well.

well now that he is getting 70 million for 5 years, you cant blame him for opting out of 3 for 33

i cant imagine red sox fans are happy with this move

As I understood it, the Red Sox hold a club option for the fifth year, something that most likely won't happen unless he exceeds expectations, so I see it as a 4 yr., 56 million deal.

Which is still ridiculous, anyway.

Or he wants to foster a winning tradition.

At least that's what I'm telling myself.
