07:33 AM ET 11.15 | It appears that free-agent righty Ricky Nolasco will have more than his share of choices. [Nolasco] has multiple four-year contract offers, his agent told Yahoo Sports on Thursday, highlighting the huge market for starting pitching and rising prices for innings-eating arms. "I believe the market for multiple-year starting pitching will start to reveal itself more clearly in the next two to three weeks," agent Matt Sosnick said. ... While Sosnick declined to name the teams or size of the contracts, one league source said he believed the starting price on Nolasco "is Edwin Jackson money" (four years, $52 million) and "may end up at Derek Lowe" (four years, $60 million). Nolasco, 30, also has multiple three-year offers on the table, Sosnick said.

Why are 3 MLB stories in the NBA section?

Why am I asking a question to which I already know the answer?

A career 500 pitcher which ought to tell these MLB clubs what they are getting for their money, but some dumb A will give him a four year deal and be sorry for it down the road.

Why?Nolasco?Really?

Seriously... Dodgers would not start him in the playoffs... what makes him a commodity other than the fact that free agent pitching seems to be non-existent...

Yes - answered your own question, that and the Tim Lincecum effect has now taken root because of it. He passes for what they call an innings eater now (200 innings - ridiculous). Otherwise a solid 4 or 5 guy at best.

Any trade for Cardinals young quality arms had better be favorable to the Cardinals if this is what the pitching market is becoming.

this guy is a little overage average starter he should be $20 nillion for three years max. My tream beat him twice this year.
