UPDATE, 12-14-07 at 9:45pm: The Houston Chronicle has the dollars on this deal. Lamb will get $6.6MM over the 2008-09 seasons. Sounds about right. In particular it’s $3.5MM in ’08 and $3MM in ’09. LEN3 says bonuses and such plus the option year could make it a three-year, $12.5MM deal.
FROM 12-14-07 at 4:48pm:
According to Phil Miller, the Twins signed third baseman Mike Lamb to a two-year deal with an option for 2010.
Not sure of the money yet, but I’m a fan of this value signing. I’ve been saying for a while now that Lamb had some of the better numbers among free agents out there. He hit .289/.366/.453 in 2007. No doubt he’s been helped by Minute Maid Park, but he’ll surely top the .236/.308/.323 line the Twins got out of their third basemen in ’07.
