The financial details will make many shrug. As 1060west expert Gaius Marius stated:
$9mm for two years with a third year player option? does eyre's agent have pictures of colonel mccormick with a donkey? regardless of how one feels about eyre, that is a TON of money for a loogy!! and the second loogy in the pen at that!!
even if eyre has another good year for the cubs (which is questionable), this just reinforces for me the ineptitude of the general management.
Well GM, rumors have the contract for Howry being the same as the contract for Eyre. Errrr. I am happy to see the Cubs adding bullpen help, but GM makes a great point about the cost and the inconsistency of relievers. Is there any question that either Dempster, Eyre or Howry will be this years ticking bomb in the pen?
