Whose head is deeper underground?

Postby bell » Fri Dec 05, 2003 6:44 pm

Pudge?
Dec. 5 - ESPN.com's Jayson Stark reports that talks between the Marlins and Rodriguez all but ended Friday afternoon, with Pudge telling the team he won't offer them a hometown discount and won't sign unless he gets a raise over the $10 million he made last season. So far Florida's best offer is two years and $14 million, a far cry from the five years and $50 million Rodriguez has been seeking.

or Millwood?
Dec. 5 - The Mets' Tom Glavine told the N.Y. Post he spoke with Millwood on Wednesday, and his former teammate said there were a handful of teams interested and the Mets were in the picture. Atlanta is the other potential suitor, with the team about to clear considerable salary space with the departures of Greg Maddux, Gary Sheffield and Javy Lopez.
The Phillies pulled their three-year offer to Millwood off the table earlier this week, with GM Ed Wade telling the Philadelphia Daily News, "The likelihood of getting something done with Kevin was pretty remote." Millwood reportedly is seeking a five- to seven-year deal at around $13 million per year.

Millwood is a looney tune. I'd take Colon over him and Colon's only been offered 4 years, 48 million so far.

7 years? He's nuts.

Pudge is over as well, but not to the land of the crazy people like Millwood is.

I just find Pudge's stubborness amusing. This is the same thing that was happening last year with him. Let's hope the circus comes back 'round next year!

Millwood 14-12 with a 4.01 ERA

Pudge earned that 10 Mill ... I just think he is off on the years ...

I say a 3yr 30 million contract would be ideal ...
two years a 10 million each and a third year option for 10 million with a 1 million buy-out. :-)

It's amazing how much difference a year makes. Since then, 1 excellent year has passed but we still need to remember that no one wanted Pudge last year. He is also just 1 year removed from being considered an aging, injury-prone catcher.

I told everyone that Pudge would be fine last year. I had no doubts about it. :-)

At least Pudge showed he's worthy of being a cornerstone for a team. He was dynamite during the playoffs, and is the best all around catcher of all time.

Millwood is expecting way too much. And if you've ever seen the guy on TV, he has NO emotion. He cracked a smile after his no hitter, but that's about it. He seems like the type of guy that would say "A million bucks? sure, sounds good, where do I sign". But apparently not...
