How is that high?

When players like AJ Burnett, who should be arrested for theft, sign for 55 million how can you come to the conclusion that Escobar is being overpaid at roughly 9.5 million per.

The Angels got a DISCOUNT here.

Burnett is younger and has been the better pitcher. Both contracts are high and you can add Morris, Millwood, and Washburn to that list too.

i dont know about discount but its definitely a good deal compared to the rest of the market. i'd rather have kelvim at 3 years 30 than many of the other contracts out there.

This is a pretty decent deal. Escobar is better than a lot of FA signings in that price ranges over the last 2-3 years. People quickly forget guys like Benson, Milton, Pavano, Clement, Wright, Weaver, etc... I'd much rather have Escobar over those guys.

Very good deal for the Angels. He would have gotten a lot more had he entered FA at the end of the season, IMO.
