Many people said that the Sox were crazy for picking up that kind of contract. But it looks like the Sox got a steal compared to what the
Red Sox just payed for John Lackey or the Phillies payed Roy Halladay.
Jake Peavy (28 Yrs Old) contract calls for him to get $70 MIL for the next 4 years.
That's an Avg of $17.5 mil a year.
John Lackey (30 Yrs Old). Lackey just got a 5 year 82.5 MIL contract. That comes out to 16.5 MIL a year.
The Phillies just gave Roy Halladay (32 Years Old) $60 for the next 3 years.
That's an avg of $20 Mil a year and they had to give up a CY young Pitcher and a top prospect just to get Halladay.
It might be early but it sure seems like he got a great deal.
Here's to KW :gulp:

Lackey gets 18 million this year. Yikes.

That's the price of pitching poker when it's in short supply.

There's nothing folks here like to do more often the past year or so than play fantasy salary cap.

Peavy was a great pickup at that price at that time and now. Going forward, he will show he was even more worth it.

I think some people here just love a good bargain. It's like discovering that the TV you bought is being sold somewhere else at a slightly higher price. So you want to brag a bit about the deal you got.

We seem to have a GM that knows a bargain when he sees one.

I feel good about it. We have a way with keeping people healthy, and Peavy should provide good performance if healthy. Trust in Herm.

Peavy has averaged 12 wins per year over the past 5 years. $17MM for 12 wins a year is no bargain.

Wins are a very poor way of evaluating a pitcher.

Oh, jesus, he was on the friggin' Padres, for one, and second - wins suck as a metric for pitchers.

Damn you are right.

Garland won 18 games for us on back to back seasons.

Peavy can't hold Garland's jock strap.

Are you kidding me?

Using that logic hitters should be judged solely on how many homeruns they hit.

In 2008 he had a 2.85 ERA and pitched 175 Innings but only had 10 Wins because was on the Padres. So the fact that you are simply referring to wins is a joke.

5 out of the last 6 seasons he has posted an ERA of 3.45 or better and 4 out of the last 6 seasons he had an ERA under 3.

Why don't you just judge if Adrian Gonzalez is good by his Runs Scored?

His team has only won an average of 78 games per season since he started playing for them. He sucks.

(please don't ask if teal is implied)

Wins are a very poor way of evaluating a pitcher.

But Mike Greenberg says its the most important statistic in evaluating a pitcher. Greenie can't be wrong, can he?

I will give you the benefit of the doubt and assume that you intended to provoke this kind of reaction, because otherwise I would have to conclude something very unflattering.

I agree. Jake will save the bullpen every 5th day. He will
pitch into the 8th and 9th innings in almost every start.
I am looking forward to a full season of him.:)

It's certainly a bargain compared to Lackey - my goodness.
