These contracts fascinate me.
I am so glad the Prince Fielder contract isn’t ours…

Bailey gets $50,000 for 50 games finished. As opposed to 50 games saved, so I gather– incl. non-save opp’s, etc., I guess. OK, interesting. I am still hoping that Padilla does not sniff the Bosox mound this season. I’d like to see Aaron Cook have a rebound year with us, but I don’t expect it. I hope he does– I liked him with the Rockies. I would like to see Andrew Miller progress and become more consistent this year, but again, I am not so sure. We’ll see!
And yeah, I am with you, TooSoxy, I am glad we don’t have another mega-contract in Da Prince.
Let’s play ball, already! GO SOX!

if carlos silva is making thirty starts ,then the sox will be having much bigger problems to worry about ..

maybe ol’bud can work up a contract like these for the theo compensation . If the cubs win 75 games we get a shortstop , if they win 80 games we get a shortstop and a starting pitcher , etc..

No real superstars, the rising contracts is not good for baseball fans in the long run.
