Who Are these guys?!?!?!

Kazmir avoided arbitration and signed a deal just over 3.7 million. Pena gets his deal, and now the Rays are looking at locking up Jamie Shields in a 6 year deal 8-o . Where is the criticism now B-)

I think the possible Shields signing is just to keep the FO sane the rest of the year. Kazmir is going to be the tough one to sign, but signing Shields and Pena could go along way to getting Kaz to sign the dotted line.

I definitely agree. He is already under contract through that term for less money. I think it is to show guys like Kazmir and the fans that they are serious about keeping the team together and winning

Yea and once you show other players that you are ready to spend money they will be willing to stay.
I think its a couple of solid moves from FO, but I want a 5+ year deal for Kaz.

If I am Kazmir's agent, no chance he signs a 5 year contract right now.

And that is just not happening from Tampa right now. In fact if I were the Tampa FO, I wouldn't pay Kazmir what Zito signed last year. :-o

I wouldn't give any pitcher that right now. The market has actually come down and may continue

You sure about that.


12 million just a month ago for this right here.

202 innings pitched, 4.19 ERA, 1.31 Whip, 89 Ks, and a blockbuster 92 pitches per outing.

That is one Mr. Carlos Silva who is nothing better then a #4/5 starter at best.
