    IIRC, pitchers' contracts can only be insured for three years. If that's still the case, then few teams can afford to be on the hook for years four and five, should something go wrong.
    Makes all the routine posts.

    I don't even like 3 years with his history.

    If they could get him for one or two years at the most, then maybe. I doubt that happens. Someone will offer a longer contract.

    best case senerio is we trade casey and sign dunn long term. most likely senerio is we lose dunn and give casey another contract.

    from rotoworld

    The Tacoma News Tribune is also reporting that the Mariners have offered Kevin Millwood $44 million over four years and says the two sides could be close to a deal.

    I would at least have offered Millwood the same money Byrd got. The worst he could do is turn you down.

    Boros would have laughed the Reds out of the room. He probably does that anyway. Whenever you are dealing with Boros you know the sole purpose of the player is to sign for the highest dollar amount possible.

    Fair enough.

    But that shouldn't stop you from making an offer.

    Mariners and Millwood came closer this morning to a deal. They submitted the high offer by a decent amount this morning. Its in Millwood's court and the M's hope to get it done by next week. Time will tell. DanO needs to get active in the trade market because that may be the Reds best chance to improve.

    IF the price is 4 /44M, perfectly fine with falling short on that one.

    The Mariners have a deal on the table for 4 yrs / $44 million. If we go over that, this organization is screwed for a long, long

    Millwood is an arm injury waiting to happen and a team will be very lucky to get two decent years out of four. The Reds would be better served signing some guys with upside to a 1 year deals and if they pitch well then flip them at the deadline. Guys that fit the profile are Armas, Ponson, etc.

    Signing free agent starters to high priced deals is nothing but fools gold for a small market team.
