Oh God please get the Kerry Wood since he's the best pitcher ever! Remember the 20k game he had last decade? Oh and get Corey "5-Tool" Patterson too, he is the next Willie Mays!

On the other hand, he's had one good year (albeit at 26, which is a common age for pitchers to break out.) I hope this isn't irrational exuberance a la Baltimore, the Dodgers or the Mets. You could argue that in a few years we'll be cursing the long term contracts that we gave to him and Paulie...
That is exactly the point.
Plus Garland is a young pitcher, he is just STARTING to develop. Considering the current market for pitchers, we got him at a relative deal. It is another win-win situation for KW. The man is becoming a genius GM. He has FOUR of his starting pitchers locked up until 2007 and he has a very talented youngster waiting in the wings. The pitching rotation is the envy of major league baseball.

I have to think keeping him all year, hopefully at the same level he performed the second half`last year, and leting him walk might be beneficial in a way. We would almost assuredly get two first rounders outta him leaving which helps us stockpile the arms again.

You don't get two first round picks, you get two sandwich picks, I after the first round and one after the second round.

I'm going to eat my words here and say that I thought Garland was going to walk after 2006 and land some fat contract somewhere else. Kudos Jon!

Why go somewhere else when you can get a fat contract here... this isn't exactly a home down discount by any means!

Unbelievable, now I think we should definitely go with B Mac in the pen and also use Contreras. I don't believe Jose will be traded because B Mac will benefit from a year in the pen IMO.

Anyone else think management is not only looking to repeat, but to create a dynasty?

Maybe winning the series reminded Jerry of how it felt to win with the bulls. I'll take 6 World Series titles in the next 8 years.

I was sure Garland was gone until we signed Pierzynski. During an interview after he was signed, A.J. said he talked to Garland and Garland told him that he wanted to stay with the White Sox. He did and I'm glad.

There's no doubt this team needed a ground ball pitcher. This is a very good day.

As for the budget, all the Sox stuff our loved bought us for Christmas and all the Sox stuff we bought for our loved ones prolly kicked the budget up 10 million alone.

The fact that we're probably gonna average 32k per game in 2006 can't hurt either.

This is one of those rare deals that makes perfect sense for all involved. Good job by KW and especially Jon and his advisors. His family is set for life and if he is the real deal, he'll get another big contract for $50MM+.
