2 years $29 million plus his $4 million option buy out spread over 4 years. He can also earn a $15 million option for 2015 if he stays healthy enough to pitch enough innings over the next 2 years.
I opine about the Twins and Kernels regularly at Knuckleballsblog.com while my alter ego, SD Buhr covers the Kernels for MetroSportsReport.com.

Wow. I didn't see that coming. We had him pegged for about that much per year, but one or two more years. Apparently, either his agent didn't think he was going to get that, or he wanted to stay with the Sox. It's interesting that he's getting that contract AND the $4M buyout.

From the Sox standpoint, they just saved themselves $4M, though they'll have to pay it back later. It also means their payroll is near $105M, I think. One can never tell what Reinsdorf is thinking, but they didn't even draw 2M this year, so I wonder if that means Floyd is on his way out the door.

Next time someone says payroll isn't everything, this is pretty good example of when it's nice to have some extra money.
