It looks like Barry Bonds will finish his career with the San Francisco Giants. Bonds signed a five-year deal with the Giants on Monday night. The 37-year-old Bonds could earn as much as $90 million in the deal, which also includes a $10 million signing bonus. Bonds set the single-season homer record in 2001 with 73.

He did well, considering there was no action for him at all. What does that say for the "Open" market when you still cash in without any bidders.


:shammy

I should get more since I am designated GM

Hey when you build a guy a ballpark you tend to give him some leverage regardless of the market situation(not to mention arbitration)

Do you wonder if he'll still be earning the big bucks in year five, when he's, what, 42-43 years old?

I tend to wonder that about every free agent. Who really thinks Jason Giambi will be worth 17 million when he is 37. Looking at the A's offseason considered what they would have to be paying a 37 year old Giambi if they kept him, they are probably better off with Pena at first.
