The Price Of Frankie: Joe Nathan Wins $47M/4-Year Deal

Affecting the market price for Francisco Rodriguez is word that Joe Nathan has agreed to a $47M/4-year deal with the Twins.
Nathan was slated to make $6 million in 2008, far less than several ace relievers around the majors. Mariano Rivera of the New York Yankees got a $45 million, three-year contract in November, and Francisco Cordero signed a $46 million, four-year deal with the Cincinnati Reds after becoming a free agent. With Francisco Rodriguez of the Los Angeles Angels eligible for free agency after this season, the price for closers could soar even higher.

Labels: , ,

Someone will sign K-Rod at some point in the off-season, probably for a 4/50-55 contract. And it will be the worst mistake that they ever make. Frankie is an outstanding pitcher, but it's silly to allocate that much payroll to a position that doesn't affect the team greatly.
