Just heard on ESPN 1000 update.

3 yrs/4.5 million (That amount might be wrong).



The best lefty reliever in the game stays on the South Side 3 more years!

:) :gulp:

WoW. Not only did the Sox spend some money but for once they did so wisely and did not overpay. Why do I get the feeling the sky is falling?

This is very good news, suprised we were able to keep him so cheaply. Very happy about this, nice to have one key to the bullpan locked up for the next couple years.

Brilliant! The most overlooked reliever in baseball and he belongs to us!

Here's to three more years of Marte's bad ass curve.

Wow that's surprising. I really thought we'd see him in the enemy pinstripes in the near future.

Wow a smart signing. I'm floored at the low-end money. Now's definitely the time to throw him in the rotation. :D:

Wow, that's a great signing at a pretty nice bargain. One of the best lefties in the game for a bit over one million a year. Nice job, Kenny! :cool:

Man, I'll definitely take it. Marte is great out of the pen, and to keep him around for 3 more years at that price. Awesome.

The contract is good. Here is what it officially entails:

This year- $500,000
2005- $1.25 million
2006- $2.25 million

Options
2007- $3 million
2008- $3 million ($500,000 buyout)

Not bad, especially if he became our closer. Both sides happy, and more importantly, I'm happy, lol. :smile:

That's fantastic! I'm shocked! He's a bargain at that salary. He must have a terrible agent.

His agent just got him $4 mil.

True, but he probably could have gotten "closer" money had he waited it out. He's that good.

This is big news. But unfortuneately, Marte news played 2nd fiddle to FoX asking Alex Gonzalez's if he forgot about that "inning" last year. Love the way the Media Doesnt Hide the Fact theyre Bigger Fans of the cubs than the fans themselves

All right.

I'll be playing Van Morrison tonight.
