김병현선수는 올해 1.5백만불 받는다. 2007년 옵션이 얼마인지 모르지만, 콜로라도 록키스 구단은 옵션을 행사할 것이다. (기본연봉은 1.25백만불이고, 2007년 buyout 옵션이 0.25백만불 있습니다. 또한 올해 던진 이닝수에 따라 최대 1백만불 인센티브 포함되어 있습니다.) 27살 한국사람인 그는 볼넷과 홈런허용 비율은 적당한 수준을 유지하고 있으며, 9이닝당 삼진비율은 7.5개로 훌륭한 편이다. 그는 이미 이번 시즌에 17번 선발 등판하였다. (2005년의 경우 22번 선발등판). 그는 대부분 팀 로테이션에서 좋은 제4선발이다.

2006 League Averages for Pitchers:

AL: 4.59 ERA, 1.41 WHIP, 3.20 BB/9, 6.38 K/9, 1.14 HR/9
NL: 4.56 ERA, 1.42 WHIP, 3.43 BB/9, 6.60 K/9, 1.12 HR/9

For league average, think your Jake Westbrooks, Cory Lidles, and Kevin Millwoods of the world.

Jason Johnson - The righthander turns 33 this October.  Giving him $3.5MM this year wasn't a bad gamble by the Indians, but it didn't work out.  After a 5.96 ERA in 14 starts for the Tribe, he was designated for assignment in June.  The next day Johnson was traded to Boston.  Two bad starts earned him a trip to Pawtucket.  He got the call again and has at least shown promise in his last two efforts.  Previously, Johnson was a league average 200 inning guy who kept the ball on the ground.  If the price is right he can be a decent fifth starter.

Byung-Hyun Kim - Kim makes $1.5MM this season.  I'm not sure of his option price for 2007, but I think the Rockies will exercise it.  The 27 year-old Korean has kept his walk and home run rates reasonable while striking out a respectable 7.5 batters per nine.  He's made 17 starts already this year after making 22 in 2005.  Kim makes a good #4 in most rotations.

Cory Lidle - The new Yankee and former replacement player makes a reasonable $3.3MM this year.  He throws groundballs and has good control.  Lidle has allowed a lot of home runs but has played in hitters' parks.  He's another league-average innings muncher.  A nice stint with New York might earn the 34 year-old more than he deserves.

Ted Lilly - The southpaw is making a bit more than $4MM this year.  He'll turn 30 this winter as he hits free agency for the first time.  The California native has control problems and gopheritis but a very healthy strikeout rate.  Ailments this year: stiff neck, shoulder tightness, and back problems.  Last year: shoulder blade discomfort, biceps tendinitis, shoulder pain, and a perceived lack of intensity.  Any team signing Lilly needs a good medical staff.

Greg Maddux -  Will the Professor play another year?  He'll turn 41 next spring.  He'll still a league-average innings guy who never misses a start.  That might not be worth $9MM but it's plenty valuable.  He'd be a fit with any West Coast team and could even return to the Cubs.  One more season should push him past Steve Carlton into the top-ten all-time for wins.

Jason Marquis - Marquis will turn 28 soon.  His 5.68 ERA doesn't look pretty.  Still, subtract a couple of save-the-bullpen thrashings and he has a 4.46 ERA.  That's about normal for Marquis.  However, his strikeout rate has plummeted to a dangerously low level the past two seasons and he's prone to the longball.  I'm not sure Marquis can provide even league-average work.  He'll make upwards of $5MM annually.
