Rockies, Cook Agree On Extension

The long-rumored three-year extension for Aaron Cook is now complete, according to MLB.com's Thomas Harding.  The sinkerballer gets $30MM to cover the 2009-11 seasons.  He's also got a mutual option for 2012.  Some of the money is a bonus going toward 2008, as Cook was set to earn only $4.5MM. 

Cook turns 29 in February.  He posted a 4.12 ERA in 25 starts in '07, ranking fourth in the league with a 57.9% groundball rate.  Cook and fellow rotation anchor Jeff Francis are both locked in through 2011 now.  The Rockies are still trying to find someone to replace Josh Fogg, who is likely to land elsewhere this winter.
