Rays sign Kazmir through 2011 with a club option for 2012

Now that's how you buy out some of a young player's FA seasons (2, if you're counting -- '11 & '12). Even with his injury history, this is a deal that I think works for both sides. Nice scoop, trwi.

Too bad Sheets won't sign for that, especialy since Kazmir is better.

Being at different stages of their careers, you won't be able to compare their contracts.

Wasn't Sheets' contract essentially the same thing? If I remember correctly, Sheets completed his 4th season in 2004 and signed a 4-year, $38.5 million deal in the off-season, which bought out two free agent seasons.

Sheets' contract also was signed 4 years ago, though, so yeah, comparing his now to Sheets' then isnt accurate. All I was getting at was that Kazmir is more valuable then Sheets, in my opinion, but b/c of the economics of baseball, Sheets will make a ton more money.
