A Tale of Two Deals

A couple of signings yesterday: (1) The Colorado Rockies locked up Troy Tulowitzki to a six year deal with a team option for a seventh; and (2) journeyman swingman Brett Tomko was picked up by the Royals for 1 year and $3.5M.

On the one hand, you could say that the Rockies buying out all of the arbitration years and up to two free agent years for one of the game's up-and-coming young players was the more significant of the two deals. That would ignore the fact, however, that Brett Tomko brings more than just a 4.62 career ERA to the table.

What does he bring? Mrs. Tomko.

(link IS safe for work, but if you're creative and interested you can find many, many for yourself that are not).
