Rangers sign Millwood :(
I know, it's not too surprising, but still a little bit of a bummer.
Kevin Millwood and the Texas Rangers have reached a preliminary
agreement on a four-year contract worth nearly $48 million, according
to a person familiar with the negotiations, ESPN's Peter Gammons
reported Monday night.
Gammons reported that the deal includes a Rangers team option for a
fifth year. If the contract goes five years, it would then be worth $60
million. Texas can void the fifth year of the deal if Millwood doesn't
pitch a certain number of innings in earlier years of the contract.
Bummer for The Tribe, especially since he's staying in the AL.
However, according to scouting reports, it's easy to throw Millwood out
of sync, and hopefully The Indians will know how to do that if/when
they face him.
