Where will Mark Mulder go next year? Does anybody have any ideas? How much money will he command with a 7.19 ERA and 1.80 WHIP?

i dont know where he will go but since he will likely have surgery i see a one year incentive based contract for him. maybe a guarantee of 2-3 mil with incentives for games started up to about 7 mil. basically something similar to the matt morris 2005 contract.

He has noweher near the value he had before the injury, but someone'll take a chance on him. Probably give him an incentive-filled contract worth about 5-6 million for a fully-played year.

Anyone know how much he's making now?

He's making $7.75M this year... Had he been healthy all season, with his track record he probably would have gotten Burnett money ($10-11M per year).

Now, I bet somebody would offer him 3 years at $4M or so. But if he's smart (and thinks he can have a healthy season), he'll take a one-year deal for $5(ish)M, prove that he can be a good pitcher, and then sign a long-term deal after that.

But who signs him is really anyone's guess.

A pitcher with his history will always be desired, regardless of this year's performance. It's not like he was good for a short time several years ago. He was good for a long time until recently. To be honest, I see some team thinking they're being clever and paying him way more than they need to, regardless of injury.
