With Millwood signing for 9.9MM yesterday in an agreed arbitration. What does that mean when Mark is able to go to arbitration, I think next year?

If Buehrle wins 20 this year with an ERA around 3.5o, he should easily be able to win $10 a year.
A young lefty who has been consistent for 3 years is a real find.

If Mark gets at least 18 wins under his belt he's going to ask for some major cash, probably in the range of 9-12 million a year. This worries me tremendously because Reinsdorf doesn't have a good history of resigning his pitchers. Albeit, most of his decisions were correct losing a proven ace like Buehrle could be damaging.

Millwood is a nice pitcher, but not for $10 million. I can see why they gave him away for nothing.

Buehrle is worth more than $10 a year. That's only 2 trips to Denny's.

I think in the future he'll be a 10 mil a year pitcher. But based on what other pitcher's just like him are getting that's a little high right now.

I would sign him to a 3 year deal worth between 13-18 million.

I would think I personally would offer him a 13 million dollar contract with a 2 million dollar signing bonus. Where he'd get 2.5 million in 2003, 4.5 million in 2004, and 7 million in 2005.

But I'm not the management for the White Sox.

The contract Kenny Williams offered him was just like the ones given to Hudson and Sabathia.

That's what he's worth in money, to the team his worth is far more than that.
