Where on the web can I find when current White Sox contracts run out?

Like Gordon Beckham, I have the Chicago White Sox 2010 Media Guide at home and according to it his contract runs through 2010. I'm sure he is signed for this season. The sox website doesn't show that type of info.

Beckham doesn't have the service time to become a FA, nor to be subject to arbitration, so he only has a one year contract every year till he is arbitration eligible.

Okay, so Beckham wouldn't be on there but Mark Buehrle is signed through 2011 according to the Chicago White Sox 2010 Media Guide. Now on the sox website I can't see if he's sign through this year or if he's signed through 2015 for example. So, the question I'm asking is where on the web can I find current White Sox players that are signed through this year or multiple years. That's the question?

Thanks dakuda and dump. That's an informative page. Okay, so a 25 million dollar drop from '08 to '09. Is that correct? Trying to recall who left or came off the books.

Javier Vazquez ($11.5 M)
Orlando Cabrera ($10 M)
Joe Crede ($5.1 M)
Juan Uribe ($4.5 M)
Nick Swisher ($3.6 M)

That's over $34 M right there.

Baseball-Reference.com, arguably the best stats site on the web, has done a lot of work on their database of contracts this past off-season. Quickly becoming as good a site as Cot's.

Or until the Sox sign him to a Longoria-like pre-arbitration deal, which I suspect will be next offseason after this offseason's "all-in" spending.

The Sox also usually give the better non-arb players a small raise from year to year. I expect Beckham to get more than the estimated $500K minimum.
