I'm not comfortable locking down any pitcher for 7 years, but if you can bypass the arbitration years, that would be a good thing.
I agree its very unlikely to happen. But I'd also look to try to sign Choo up. When Billy is ready, Choo moves to left and Ludwick becomes a great bench bat and fills in for Choo/Bruce against tough lefties. Would LOVE to see it happen, but I doubt it would. Walt said as much when he announced the trade.
