I care but they are going to need more than El Duque come 2007. Pedro may be awhile and Glavine & Traschel are free agents.

My favorite part of the article:

The New York Post reported Tuesday afternoon on its Web site that the club and the veteran pitcher, who claims to be 37 years old, had agreed to a two-year, $11 million contract.

Too bad they cannot cut a hole into him and count the number of rings like you can with a tree. :D:

$6m is alot for an aging, oft-injured inconsistent pitcher. I hope he does well for them though. Never forget 10/07/05

Good to see he's still employed. I wish him nothing but the best.

Heres hoping Zito and Schmidt stay out on the west coast, and the sox get great returns for both Garcia and Vazquez.

Yup, good job El Duque! We'll always remember him for arguably the best pitched single inning ever in White Sox history.

Two years is kind of a suprise. Heck, given his age I would try to go month to month.:D:

Zito is going to get about a billion then, owners are losing all financial control again.

There's more money. New media is bringing in new revenue streams, revenue sharing is bringing in more money...there's more cash to go around, and the choices are either spend more on players or let the owners make more. (Sure there's a third choice of organizational spending but who's going to do that?!)

Yep. As SABRSox said above, that one inning of work in 2005 will be remembered forever. I wouldn't mind having him back...as the next in a series of beloved bullpen catchers.
