3 years, $16 million.

In my opinion, that's a pretty good bargain for the Marlins.

Signing Castillo was my #1 offseason priority for the Sox. I'm not sure what I'd suggest at this point.

How is it that Luis Castillo can only be getting payed roughly $300,000 more per year than Valetin (averaged)?

No brains in this organization... NO BRAINS!

I'm just happy he didn't sign with the Cubs or Yanks. I really don't think the White Sox were ever a real consideration for him. Maybe KW is holding off for Todd Walker........

Well I guess the picking up the option is what you are refering to, but the original versions of the contracts were from different economic times, SS is more valuable than 2B, and when did Castillo become Joe Morgan meets Rickey Henderson? He's a good player, but he's not amazing

He also took a "hometown" discount (which Jose did as well, which speaks to the new economic realities out there), and got a deal for 4 years(pretty long term as that 4th year should vest pretty easily)

Boy, the Marlins are really having a fire sale after winning the World Series.

Its great to hear he is staying with the Marlins and not going to the Flubs.

The Sox could of easily afforded Catillo, had they not kept Valentin or not signed him for so much!

The Sox top priority is STILL trading away a sizeable contract (almost certainly Lee or Maggs) in order to keep the payroll under $60 million. They had better hurry too. As teams pick up FA's and fill their needs, they will become less interested in trading for an impact player.

From reading the paper and listening to the radio it sounds like that Konerko for Perez trade is getting more likely. I cannot believe that a team that is hurting for offense as badly as the Dodgers would put their eggs in the basket of a Korean League player. If Japan is considered the equivalent of AA or AAA what is Korea's status?

I also think the lack of talk about negotiations with FA starting pitchers is being caused by this trade's potential for occuring.

Marlins can now trade him and get something. Its smart insurance in case a great offer comes in

Don't think they're trying to trade him, since they also just signed Mike Lowell, and are now working on Pudge....
