John Lannan signs with the Phils for $2.5 million with another $2.5 million in incentives. Lannan is a much better pitcher than Correia. Is it close????

John Lannan to Philadelphia Phillies as potential starter, source says - ESPN (http://espn.go.com/mlb/story/_/id/8749524/john-lannan-philadelphia-phillies-potential-starter-source-says)

We as fans cannot allow management to continue to scream poverty when it comes to signing big ticket FAs when they are signing glorified 5th starters like Correia to multi-year deals for insane money. Even if we were short on cash (which we are not), terrible contracts like Correia's, especially with a guy like Lannan out there, only make the situation worse.

Agreed that the contract the twins gave will look worse and worse as other bad pitchers sign.

I would object to the statement that Lannan is a "much better pitcher" than Correia. But the contract is horrible.

The contract is worse, the pitcher isn't. They are both groundball-inducing, strikeout-allergic swingmen.
