How many more years of JR picking his salary and then arbitration elegible years does he have? Basically I'm just wondering how many more years he has til he can flat out be a FA?

He will be in a White Sox uniform until after the 2005 season,after that he will be arbitration elegible.

I heard that the new CBA gives 3 years of indentured servitude, then 2 years of arbitration, then unrestricted FA.

As I understood the old plan had an extra year in there somewhere.

But I'd look here for a summary. Maybe this has it somewhere... (http://roadsidephotos.com/baseball/laborstatus.htm)

hmm. It doesn't look like that seemed to be very informative. "same as previous CBA". I'll poke around a bit more and see if I can find a good summary.
edit. Here's the entire 'previous' CBA in PDF form... Good luck translating it. (http://roadsidephotos.com/baseball/MLB-CBA.pdf)

No that was my mistake Ma,I meant eligible for free agency,not arbitration,and instead of sneaking back and editing it,I will remain publicly corrected for not typing what I was thinking.

I have a different Buehrle question. Has anyone heard if he pitched anymore in Japan after being hit in the shoulder. I believe I heard he was expecting to get into one more game, but all the accounts I've read seem more focused on Barry Bonds than anything else. Has anyone seen anything new on our ace's condition? I'm curious.

No, they shut him down after that.
