But you cant and its really high. If the Pac Bell effect works then this is a great buy. But it might not :-t


The Giants are only paying him like 500k next season. How could he be a bad buy?

$1.5 mil from what I've read.


actually....he is owed $3.3 million by the Giants.... 8-o

For whatever reason, I think that's referencing his salary from last year? :-?

Hmmm ... :-?

This might actually save his Career. I carried Tomko all last year in one of my NL only leagues and swept pitching. 8-o yep. As much as I cus the kid up and down. who knew.
I think this will be excellent for him. and if want proof, check out Hermanson last year, go look at his spilts. STL vs SFG..

As for Corriea, I'd gamble he beats our Hermanson for that number five. :-D

Only 500k in 2004. So, once again, how could this possibly be a poor signing?

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

He had one decent ratio year back in '98 when he won his most games (13) and his ERA low (besides his rookie year) was also in '98 at 4.46. He's a bum :-o
