BJ Ryan gets 5 years, $47 million.
Billy Wagner gets 4 years, $43 million.
Good lord. Looks like picking up Eddie's $6 million option was a bargain. Lesson? Teach your son two nasty pitches and he'll be set for life. If you can make him left-handed, that's even better.
Also, Billy Beane decided Esteban Loaiza was a good idea. 3 years, $21+ million. There are some within the Mariner nation who thought Loaiza would have been good to go after. I think of all the pitchers out there, that could be the cheapest deal we're gonna see. I'm not crushed by the M's not getting Loaiza, but if they don't get Millwood or Burnett, and have to overpay for some chump like Jarrod Washburn, losing out on Loaiza is going to look worse.
