Just for accuracy, I believe that his three year contract becomes a two year deal if he does not play at least 75 games in 09. So if the injury is serious, the Cubs only spent $20M on him. Still not a good deal.
It's a 2 year deal with a 2011 12 million vesting option. The option is automatically exercised if he plays 75 games. There is a $500,000 buyout, though.
