It's killing me that I still don't know if I'm driving to Detroit tomorrow or not. I think I might go, just because by the time I'd know for sure, it would be too late for me to get there in time

Has it been confirmed that he's dating Upton? Did he break up with his college sweetheart Emily?

He makes $20 million a year, plays on a contender, and Michigan is nice in the summer. When he negotiated his contract, he got a contract that was slightly bigger than the one that Felix Hernandez got.

Both Verlander and King Felix are set to be free agents after 2014. The money storm that off season will be glorious.

WTF Indeed: Both Verlander and King Felix are set to be free agents after 2014. The money storm that off season will be glorious.


Which is why I don't understand why the Mariners don't trade Felix now for a huge return... even if they did have the means to re-sign him (which I doubt), doing so would assuredly remove any chance they have of fielding a competitive team.

Any Mariners fan that says they don't need Felix has no idea about baseball. Felix is a once in an organization type pitcher, like Verlander, and when you get them you just dump money at them.

People don't know how badly Toronto misses Halladay. Unfortunately he wanted more than just money. If Felix is fine with more money but not the contender thing then just pay the guy and let him live in the space needle if he wants to.

WTF Indeed: Both Verlander and King Felix are set to be free agents after 2014. The money storm that off season will be glorious.


They were both free agents before the 2010 season and both signed 5 year deals. Felix signed first for $68 over 5 years and then Verlander signed for $70 over 5 years. Both make about $20 million a year now (back-loaded contracts). Sabathia's contract is a little bigger, $23 million a year, but it's not blow-them-out-of-the-water better.

That's kind of where the top pitchers are right now - Santana is at $23 million, Cliff Lee is at $21.5, Halladay is at $20, Zambrano is at $19, Zito is at $19, Lincecum is at $18.25.

You'd think a Mariners fan would remember the last time they had a shutdown ace. Randy Johnson got traded away in 1998 for the massive return of Freddy Garcia and Carlos Guillen.

Santana is done. Cliff Lee can't bribe his team to score a run, Halladay is drunk 24/7, Zambrano is loco, Zito is whatever Zito is, and Lincecum finally realized In-&-Out burgers and pot are not what pitchers need to succeed.

CC's contract is the bottom of the range for Aces. I'd take Felix or Verlander over CC any day of the week and I'm a Yankee fan.

That's comparing apples to oranges. Johnson was 34 at the time, was traded at the deadline, and was going to be a free agent at the end of the season. Felix is 26 right now and is under contract for another two seasons. So we're talking 2 months of an aging Randy Johnson vs 2 years of a young Felix Hernandez. Big difference

They still dealt an ace pitcher, who went on to have career years and pitcher another ten years. Which you would think would make them even more scared to trade Felix since he is only 26.

is a back loaded contract just a show of good faith by the player in negotiations? Why are they so common?

Teams do that hoping they win soon so they can off set their profit for when the player becomes older. Backloaded contracts are always a bad idea. Good God that woman is hot.

Yes, they are both aces. But not all aces have equal trade value and you can't just pretend that there aren;t other factors involved. Also, Johnson's longevity is the exception, not the rule (and no one in 1998 could have possibly known that he would last as long as he did). Could Felix pitch at a high level until he's 42? Absolutely. Will he? Well..... I'm betting against that. I'm not saying that they should trade Felix, just that the Johnson trade is a bad comp

There's an expectation that future revenues will exceed current ones, time-value of money, and players know that the contracts signed in two or three years are going to be bigger than now and want to make sure that when that happens, they're still making what someone in their situation should be making.

now I'm looking though some of my favorite players' contracts. The most interesting ones I've found are Prince Fielder's and Jose Bautista's. Prince's is interesting on how simple it is; it only goes up one mil after 3 years and stays steady. He'll make more money than god no matter what. Jose's was only (snert) 8 mil the first year then went up to 14 mil through 2015 with a 14 million option afterwards and a one mil buyout.

Simply put, this looks like fun maths if it were my career.

I'm leaving for MI (from NYC) in an hour, so I'm hoping the Orioles win A. because I don't want the Yankees to win... being a Tiger fan in NYC during that series isn't all that fun and B. because by the time anyone wins I'll already be most of the way to Detroit because I have tickets if the game is there tomorrow.

Most of the time, the player is trading money thats not guaranteed for the team guaranteeing money owed to them, I still find it funny that the Mets have to pay bobby bonillia a few million for a few decades.

Are you referring the extra arm above Michigan? I know people say Michigan is a nice outdoors man area but I dont give a shiat about that at all.

The biggest problem I have with the state is how nasty it is in the winter, some places people call a winter wonderland but the places I were just made the entire state look filthy and disgusting.

Not in baseball, baseball contracts are all guaranteed. Usually it's the team equivalent of putting everything on your credit card. This might be expensive in 4 years, but look at all the stuff we can buy now!

Umm Freddy Garcia was pretty damn good for a few years, and Guillen was a solid SS. That was a great haul for two months of a guy who was going to leave anyway.

Well yeah but I mean it will also kick in team option years most of the time as well, and holy fark, I just read the Mets have to pay him $1.19 million a year until 2035! If I were a Mets fan I would gather up people to just harass their owners anytime they are in public and at the games until they sell them to a real owner, but being a Braves fan I find it hilarious since we just know they will suck.

I know. Last year I found myself cheering wildly, alone, in my apartment when the Tigers won. I'm suppose I will do the same this year, if it comes to that.

At least if we get to the World Series I'll be with friends. We'll be at EPCOT, but I'm sure there will be much checking of scores and cheering or groaning.
