Carrying a Millwood Around Your Neck

Posted in Baseball at 12:02 pm by antonello

Millwood, 5 for 60?!  I guess I could see the 12 mil a year – it’s been a players’ market this offseason – but 5 years?  That is so 2001.  Paging Mike Hampton, please come to the main overpaid desk.  No Mr Hampton?
Millwood had a great ERA last year, but his peripherals weren’t great.  He will probably give the Rangers 200 IP which ain’t shabby, but I doubt we’re going to see a performance like last year repeated throughout the life of this deal.  He’s had two very good seasons (1999, 2002), one good year (2005) all mixed in with some ok but not awesome years.  And he’s turning 32.
