Check out some of the contracts being signed by free agents so far this offseason. Kinda scary...
Scott Baker/Cubs - 1 YR/$5.5M - didn't even pitch last season.
Scott Feldman/Cubs - 1 YR/$6M - 5.09 ERA last year and only 11 games pitched in 2011.
Jeremy Guthrie/Royals - 3 YR/$25M - 17 losses and a 4.33 ERA in 2011 and 12 losses and a 4.76 ERA last season.
Jason Marquis/Padres - 1 YR/$3M - 5.22 ERA and 1.47 WHIP over 22 starts last year.
Geovany Soto/Rangers - 1 YR/$2.75M - .198/.613 is pathetic for a starting catcher.
Jeremy Affeldt/Giants - 3 YR/$18M - good reliever, but this is a silly use of resources for a non-closer.
Brandon League/Dodgers - 3 YR/$22.5M - he's a good reliever too, but not a closer. This is a closer's contract, not set-up man.
Russell Martin/Pirates - 2 YR/$17M - past 2 seasons as Yankees catcher .224/.723 and hasn't reached 100 hits in a season since 2009.
Andy Pettitte/Yankees - 1 YR/$12M - 40 years old and only pitched 12 games last year after sitting all of 2011 out.
Mariano Rivera/Yankees - 1 YR/$10M - the greatest relief pitcher of all-time has my respect, but the 43 year old only pitched in 9 games last year.
*KK would get 6 YR $90M on the open market. Yikes!
