According to Fox last night it expires at the end of the calender year but I don't know how much I trust that.

End of the calenday year is right. I think it is Dec. 19 specifically. But from what I have been reading that date has nothing to do with whether or not compensatory picks are received. The picks aren't determined until the draft and the 2007 draft is governed by the new CBA so no team will be penalized for signing FAs this season.
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
