    I like it, even though yesterday I was bashing him for not wanting to play in the spot light. I guess I'm funny that way.

    The 6 years is a bigger deal than the money. He would have played in California if any of the teams would have added a 6th year...

    Right, until he becomes a free agent and then the red sox and yankees can overpay him too. I can't believe I let baseball sucker me in every year.

    And Ryan Braun for 6 more years, so unfortunately, baseball has a firm grip until then.

    Imagine if CC gets off to a similar start to 2009 that he did in 2008. Or if his postseason performances don't improve. We'll be able to hear the booing from here.

    C.C. will eat his way out of the big leagues in less the 4 years. The over/under is at 3.5 years.

    Especially now that he has even more money.

    I actually think in some ways him being a bigger guy makes him more durable. Sounds messed up, but I'd be inclined to believe it helps him with the way he pitches.

    I agree 100% and said that in another thread. He will be pitching longer than Lincecum, I promise you that...
