I dont see the cubs bidding that much but dont be fooled, Hendry suprised us with Soriano, could he do it again?? To me it looks like the mets or yanks got him... Thats alot of money but #4 pitchers will go for about the combination of the 3 year 40 million.. I have seen his stuff, he is not bad.. but he hasent faced hitters like the mlb has.. so we will see!!!
According to SI.com, the winning bid for Japanese left-hander Kei Igawa was for about $25 million.
Incredible. Igawa's stuff has drawn mixed reviews, and while he might be well ahead of MLB hitters in his first season in the U.S., it seems unlikely that he'll settle in as more than a third or fourth starter. If it costs a total of $40 million to bring him in for three years, we have a new candidate for the biggest bust of the winter. It's expected that we'll know tonight who won the bidding for Igawa.
