Somehow, the Mets will be stuck giving him a million bucks a year through the year 3001.

Is there a clause requiring him to follow a conditioning regimen? Right now, if he got a hit, he wouldn't make it out of the box.

The bigger thing I got out of the article was that Tony Banks sold his Super Bowl ring. for 36,000. I know he was only a backup and sorta kinda didn't earn it but it is still something he worked his whole life for. He is a sideline reporter for the big 10 and surely cannot be that broke/in debt.

Its sad even for a backup....

I hate when articles talk about salaries from decades ago, and don't do the simple task of telling the reader what that would be, adjusted for inflation. It's a simple google search!
