This would be great for our bullpen. Huge fan of this signing if it goes through.

Per MLBTR, 3 years for $16.5 million... 8-o

Possibly a great addition to the bullpen, but that's crazy money for a setup guy.

3/$16.5MM would be approaching $75-80K per inning, if he stays healthy.
Comparative money for a starter would be in the neighborhood of $15MM/year. That's Buerhle, Arroyo, Lowe, Dempster category there... I can't see us getting anywhere near that type of value out of a bullpen arm.

Outside of the top 15 closers in the league, he'd be the highest paid relief arm I think. 8-o

Based on this, I don't think Scott Downs will have much of a problem finding his money.

Benoit will be bringing the Rays their first of many supplemental draft picks in the 2011 draft. :,-(

It's a lot less than what Soriano will get, and they'll probably produce similar numbers. Signing set-up guys is where the profit is made, not closers.
