Ortiz, Lee get locked up

New, comments

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.
