2001 The Yankees sign free-agent Jason Giambi to a seven-year deal worth $120 million. The 2000 MVP and this year's runner-up drove in 120 runs, hit 38 home runs, and had a .342 batting average for the wild-card Oakland A's this season.
2007 Alex Rodriguez and the Yankees finalize a 10-year, $275 million contract, making the deal the richest in baseball history. A-Rod, who surpassed the all-time salary record he signed with the Rangers ($252 million in 2000), chastised his agent, Scott Boras, and blamed himself for the poor handling of his opt-out clause with the team.
2008 The Royals signed free-agent right-handed reliever Kyle Farnsworth to a $9.25 million, two-year contract which includes a club option for 2011. The Yankees dealt the 32 year-old fireballer to Detroit for veteran catcher Ivan Rodriguez at the trade deadline last season.
