Ortiz, Lee get locked up

Two of the better hitters in baseballs signed contract extensions today.

David Ortiz's deal is through 2010 (2011 option), and although terms haven't been officially released, $12M/year seems to be the value of the new contract.

Derek Lee's deal is through 2011, and he'll be getting $15M/year.

Ortiz's contract is of interest because Travis Hafner will eligible for free agency after the 2008 season, and Big Pappi's deal should serve as a starting point in negotiations.
