The usual suspects.  He'll end up in pinstripes.

Shocker.

"The Yankees, with the addition of Tanaka?s reported $22 million salary in 2014, will have eight players who will make at least $15 million this upcoming season. That figure would be nine, but Alex Rodriguez (and his $25 million salary) is currently suspended for 2014.
Hall-of-Famer-in-waiting shortstop Derek Jeter, is actually ninth(or 10th, if you count A-Rod) on the Yankees? 2014 payroll at $12 million.

In comparison, the rest of the AL East has just five players who are scheduled to get $15M or more in 2014."

Maddux entering Hall with no team logo on his plaque.  LaRussa as well.

he actually pitched more games on other teams than he did with the braves if i remember correctly

still weird not to go in with a braves hat though. those years defined his career.

He was a Cub twice, though, and drafted by them.

ATL: 363

CHI: 302

SD: 60

LA: 19

i understand the decision (not wanting to alienate cubs or braves fans) i just assumed a braves cap for his plaque was a given

hes my favorite player of all time, for what its worth, so he can do whatever the hell he wants at this point. im half considering making the trip to cooperstown just to see him one more time

D-Backs got Arroyo, only a 2-year deal.  That's a coup if true...

UPDATE: 2-yr, $19m, club option for third year.

That's a great deal for AZ.

Keith Law doesn't think so.  Just heard him on CBS radio.

Edit: He has an Insider column on it which just posted.  Which I can't access.

2004: 27 starts, 178.2 innings
2005: 32 starts, 205.1 innings
2006: 35 starts, 240.2 innings
2007: 34 starts, 210.2 innings
2008: 34 starts, 200 innings
2009: 33 starts, 220.1 innings
2010: 33 starts 215.2 innings
2011: 32 starts 199 innings
2012: 32 starts 202 innings
2013: 32 starts 202 innings

And no draft pick compensation attached.  With the young staff AZ has, he's the perfect mentor/innings eater for that team.

I saw $23.5M.  And I guess the point was that, as a fly-ball pitcher, he's not suited for the AL East.

Especially not Camden Yards.

23.5 is the guaranteed money. the third year is a team option with a $4.5 million buyout.

considering the price of pitching these days, a guy as reliable as arroyo is practically a steal for that much

curious to see where burnett goes. kilgore suggested the nats make a play. not sure if i buy it, but it would be an interesting move. he'll probably end up back in pittsburgh, provided they can carve out some budget space
