I do have to agree with this one. Jeter has the winning attitude and he will do whatever it takes to win, guy does have guts.

I really like Wright. I think he is going to be huge. He does it all- good glove, some power and good speed.

That may be true, but his career has just begun. Hopefully, He's got that out of his system.

Arroyo, Reds agree on $25 million extension
All-Star pitcher gets 2-year deal after going 14-11 with ERA of 3.29 in '06

CINCINNATI - Right-hander Bronson Arroyo and the Cincinnati Reds agreed Thursday to a $25 million, two-year contract extension through 2010.

Arroyo's previous contract contains $8,075,000 in remaining guaranteed salary: $4,125,000 this year and $3.95 million in 2008.

His extension calls for a $2.5 million signing bonus, payable in 2008, and salaries of $9.5 million in 2009 and $11 million in 2010.

Cincinnati has an $11 million option for 2011 with a $2 million buyout. The price of the option can escalate to $13 million, based on innings.

As part of the extension, Arroyo agreed to eliminate a clause that could have increased his 2008 salary by $325,000 if he pitched 210 innings this year, and $325,000 in possible performance bonuses in 2008.

Arroyo's deal came two days after the Reds agreed to a $36.5 million, four-year contract with Aaron Harang, their other top starter. That agreement also includes a 2011 option.

Arroyo, an NL All-Star, led the major leagues with 240 2-3 innings pitched and was 14-11 with an ERA of 3.29.

He and Harang, who won 16 games and pitched 234 1-3 innings, became the first pair in Reds history to each pitch at least 200 innings and have at least 184 strikeouts. Harang led the National League with 216 strikeouts.

The Reds obtained the 30-year-old Arroyo from Boston last March in a trade for outfielder Wily Mo Pena.

Good for Arroyo.

Cincinnati is getting smart by locking up those two for a few years.

Bud Selig is not committing himself to see Bonds* break the record! What a slap in the face!

I hope he doesnt.

Well, ol' Bud made his bed and now he has to sleep in it. By waiting so long to address perf enhancing drugs in any meaningful way (some might argue they still haven't) MLB and the commish are now forced to acknowledge Bonds just as they would any other record breaker. Sad but true.

For the sake of all invloved, if it happens let's just hope it happens in San Fran because it could get pretty ugly in a visitors park. Boston in mid-June would be a nightmare scenario...those will be Giants games 68, 69, and 70 of the season, which should be safe since it took him 130 games to hit 26 last season. Iif he maintains the same home run pace at age 42 as he did at age 41, he would break Aaron's record during the first week of September (they are home against the Dodgers and Dbacks 9/7-9/12).

I still cant understand why even SF fans support this freaking moron.

I would think Bud would be there.

I really hope that Aaron isnt.

That would be more of a slap in the face to barry* then anything else.

Not that he cares, but it would be pretty sweet

I'm with ya on the SF fans, I just don't get it.

I believe I read recently that Aaron has said he will not be there and does not plan to participate in any way.

And if he thinks he doesn't see any pitches now, can you just imagine how many times he will walk if/when he gets to HRs 754 and 755?

Too bad Clemens will prolly be in the AL.

Not that I would condone any pitcher intentionally hitting a batter

Maybe the Yanks ( or Sox) could loan Roger to Houston when they play SF

Both the Sox and Yanks play SF this year, so one way or another he'll probably get his chance.

Isn't love blind? Think about it. You've rooted for someone who's been, by far and away, the best player on your team and one of the best in his sport, for over 10 years. You love the guy, then you find out he probably did something very bad, do you automatically start to hate him? How many Cards fans hate Mcgwire?

Between Schilling and Beckett on the Sox...... one way or another he'll get beaned at some point if he attempts to break the record at Fenway, i think.

Bonds has been a jackass his entire time in SF.

From what I remember, McGuire was a very well liked guy whiile in STL.

There would be the difference

On another Sad Note......

Yankee great Hank Bauer died today. Getting kinda freeky. Steve Barber, a pitcher that played for Hank when he managed the Baltimore Orioles died the other day, now Hank.

Hank was a 3 time all-star. His mark of hitting in 17 consecutive World Series games still stands today. He was AL Manager Of The Year with the O's in '64 & '66, the year the O's swept the World Series from Sandy Koufax and the LA Dodgers.

Hank had 3 year taken off his career while serving in the Marine Corps during WWII. He was wounded in the leg during the battle of Okinawa. He also participated in the landing at Guadacanal. He won 2 Bronze Stars & 2 Purple Hearts.





Here's to you Hank. One of the great ones. We're gonna miss you.


Scooter, Hank & Yogi

I read that Bernie Williams turned down the Yankees offer of a minor league contract. I'm sure that someone could use him, some young team that could use an experienced 4th or 5th outfielder.
