so, does that take him completely off the fantasy radar then?

Raise your hand if you want your pitcher pitching half his games at the GAB...

Yeah that's a shame. As a Red Sox fan, I was hoping to see him in a Yankee uniform.

A $25.5 million, three-year deal. 8-o


Man, I hope my little boys want to become pitchers as they get older. ;-D

25.5 for 3 years for Milton?!?!?!? 8-o

ok now, thats just stupid. He has essentially 6 seasons under his belt (minus 2003 when he only pitched 3 games), and his best season he posted a 4.32 ERA. Ridiculous.

Reds fans - how do you feel about paying Milton $8.5 mil in 2006 and $9 mil in 2007?

I'm wondering the same thing looking at this (don't know how accurate it is) GAB looks to be a pitchers park. :-?

wv - i dont know the park effects all that well, but it was my understanding that the GAB is one of the top 3 best hitting parks in MLB - am I wrong, and where does CB ballpark rank? Is there enough of a sample size for CB park to rank it?
