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.
Yes, but I think that was the Mariners being dumb. You see the struggles going on with Santana and I think there has been some restraint.
Willis got a 3 year 29 million deal and he is better than Silva
You can't compare Willis to Silva, because Willis has never been on the open market. The Tigers did the same to Willis as we are doing with Shields. Buying out a year or two of free agency ahead of time to give the team some support and a definite arm in the rotation.
