Doesn't he have a huge contract as well?


he signed a 7 year/126 million dollar contract in 2006 i believe it was, so i think he is in the last year of the deal


And with it being the last year of the contract, it's probably the most expensive year. But whatever, it's not like money is an issue for the Yankees anyway. They make so much money off of tv rights it really doesn't matter what they pay their players.

Which is why team like Toronto, which is owned by its television broadcaster, is fucked in terms of money it can spend. Having little to no access to television revenue means you're going up against teams making $200-$300 million a year before they ever sell a single ticket. It's a shame that the MLB and most professional sports leagues can't be run like the NFL.


yeah it was a backloaded contract
the yankees are trying to lower their payroll dramatically, trying to get below 185 million.

Quite a few people around my area are upset about Hamilton. The Rangers' GM is upset he didn't give them a chance to counter offer. I don't think they would have matched the Angela' offer though.

He has 2 years left, each being $21 million. Though, he does have a clause saying that he can opt out of his contract if he wants to, since it's after 2011... :lol:

Has anybody else seen this website? Just came across it while searching for more about Wells' contract. I'm sure you'll enjoy some of these numbers if the Yankees get him...: http://baseballplaye...36_Vernon_Wells

I agree. Isn't he injured right now anyway? I've been to one major league game my entire life and it was Rangers/Angels summer 2011. I'd like to go again this summer if we can afford it.

he has injury problems, we know about his off the field problems. i like him as a player but i dont think he is the type of person to lead a team.

He said the reason for this year's horrible midseason slump was that he quit chewing tobacco, was this ever confirmed or was it just an excuse? For all his problems he seems like a standup guy in terms of honesty, so I tend to think he was speaking the truth.

Yeah that site has some interesting features, but I think I still prefer Cotts.

I'm certain if the Yankees acquire Wells they would force the Angels to take on a good chunk of his salary. He did have a rebound year in 2010, but he's been brutal ever since.

The infatuation with the Drew brothers continues as the Red Sox sign Stephen Drew, which means they realize Iglesias will never become a major league hitter.

Just what we need, another guy coming off a career-worst season.

It appears the Mets are getting rid of R.A. Dickey and his catcher Josh Thole, both of whom I liked a lot, for a bunch of players I don't give a shit about. There's almost nobody left on the team I like. Exciting. Looking forward to another 76-86 season with no-name players except Santana, who will probably not play most of the season, and Wright.

Attention World:

"Loose" means something is not tight, for example "My shoelace is loose."

"Lose" means to misplace or to not win. Examples include, "Keep your keys in your pocket so you don't lose them," and, "The Yankees are going to lose tonight and every day this week for sure because they suck."

Thank you.
