Not every player makes $18 million dollars per year over the life of an 8 year deal.. He's already a horrible defensive outfielder and he still has 5 years left on his deal after this year! The contract is nearly impossible to move, what happens in three years, does the team dare move him to first base? Will he still have any offensive game in 3 years let alone 5???<quoted text>
I was OK with this until the last sentence. Soriano has already ahd a better career than that; and isn't every player a major injury away from those ranks?
Mike Hamptons contract saddled the Rockies for nearly a decade with a tight payroll. The Cubs are already feeling the effects of his contract at the trading deadline in year 3.
