Links for Friday…
- Anthony McCarron of the New York Daily News says $100MM contracts for pitchers are risky, given the deals signed by Kevin Brown, Barry Zito, and Mike Hampton. Those pitchers don’t seem similar to C.C. Sabathia, however.
- The second part of Curt Schilling’s article about his trade to the Red Sox.
- The Royals signed several minor league free agents, including righty Federico Castaneda from the Mexican League.
- SI.com’s Jon Heyman explains why the free agent market is slow. It doesn’t seem abnormal to me; it makes sense to wait until after December 1st to see if arbitration is offered.
