“With the 748th selection in the 2006 First-Year Player Draft,
the Texas Rangers select Wallace State Community College left-handed pitcher Derek Holland.
“We’d like him listed as the best damn pitcher
drafted and developed by this organization since Kevin Brown.”

Five years guaranteed at $28.5 million. Two more club options ($11 million and $11.5 million) after that.
2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016.
Plus 2017 and 2018 if the club so chooses.
This is so good.
