After hearing about Gil Meche Johann's calls have not been answered by his agent.


Are you surprised, The Twins are getting one heck of deal when you cinsider what these other Bums are getting



Santana should pull a sheff and hold out for a new deal.

I dont think it looks so bad when you realize he is still eligible for arbitration. After 2008 look out.

I think Johan will get by on the $40 mil until he hits FA, when he can then ask for 1 bazillion dollars!!!!!!!! Johan signed the deal so play. I mean is Johan were to get hurt or pitch poorlt its not as if he will give the money back.

I've got to tell you, I like Halladay's extension signed earlier this March for 40M over 3 years over anybody's. He took a definite hometown discount to stay with the team until 2010, and I'm sure he knew it. Thanks, Doc. ;-D
