I dont think so either. They should be putting money out there for big players. I dont think that he has the skills, and can carry a team on his back, so i dont think hes worth that much!

The truth of the matter is most players are overpaid. It would be unfair to single 1 player out, saying he isn't worth it. If you want to go in that direction, start a list of overpaid players. Oh and Good Luck to ya. Finding them will not be an issue, finding enough room on the page will be the issue.

He was when they wrote the contract.....

IMO just a tuff start to the season. Remember he missed almost half last season. Just has to get back on his feet.

Right now, NONE of out position players are worth what they are being paid. Our bats are like "fun noodles". It sure would be nice to get a stinking hit.

Is A fraud worth 30 mil a year? That is the real question. Wow do these boys make some money. I don't think any of them should be paid as high as they do.

If your talking about the Cuddy on the show House then yes I say she is worth it after all she's really hot, if your talking about the baseball player then I'll say no. smile

way too many sports figures get overpaid. cuddy is a good example of one but I'm sure there are worse offenders.

that being said, you've got to wonder how long he can continue to play based on his performance. I think it's safe to say that he's benefitting from being the 4th highest paid player on the team so they need to give him every opportunity to play. I can almost guarantee you that if you switched his salary with any other person on the team that plays in the o/f that he'd be riding the bench. he's not a bad player to have on the team but he's definitely not the 4th best player; only the 4th highest paid.

Absolutely not! This is just my opinion, no ball player should get paid that high.

so, the owners should keep more money for themselves and give less to the players even though the players on the field are the product?

no, not keep it to themselves, but spend it on the right players!

Just my opinion

They don't. That's just my opinion, that's what drives the ticket prices up so high for the fans. It wouldn't cost so much to go to a game if the players weren't paid so highly.

Capitilism at it's finest. Hey look, I'm not trying to have a one on one argument with you, I stated my OPINION and you jump all over me like I just ran over your dog. Chill out, it's just my opinion, and from the sounds of it, a pretty bad one.

And I'm jealous, I don't make 7 million a year for doing what I do. That probably has something to do with it.

Baseball salaries have gotten way out of control...

the NHL is talking of lowering their salary caps.. and MLB just continues to tip theirs higher and higher..

It is breathtaking to realize a guy can sit on the bench and watch every game all season long from the best seat in the house.. play catch with a couple pitchers.. and make WAAY more then I do in a year...

sigh.... I am in the wrong business

No hard feelings or ill intentions, I know you know more about baseball than i do, i can tell from reading your posts!!!! It was more of a life statement than a baseball one on my part. But I hear what you are saying, as far as revenue goes.

YES baseball needs a Salary Cap!

Imagine how much more fun it will be to see MLB with parody!

Front office moves, brining up your own talent, coaching....it would almost be like a real sport then!

Baseball should have enacted a salary cap after the strike in 94, but since they didn't and contracts have been written for umpteen years, it is too late now. That would have been the perfect time, the Yankees were a horrible team and weren't spending too much and Steinbrenner woulda probably thought it was a good idea back then.

    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
    • Concrete. Way easier to plow. My parents have a gravel driveway WORST THING EVER! Impossible to snow blow because of all the rocks always wet and muddy. Sure it's cheaper but in the long it's not worth the cheaper price. 
    • I have used a Lowrance XOG (no longer available) on my boat and on my snowmobile for years now with no problems with cold or speed of tracking. I use a Lakemaster card for Minnesota lake for fishing, a Navionics card for coverage in Canada and LOW for winter and summer fishing, and a Red Pine snowmobile trail map for riding. Have ridden at 30 below without any problem with the touchscreen, it is hooked up to sled power, so it probably is getting some heat, and I put it inside my jacket when I get off. I recommend that you do a little research on the available chips for where you are going because different manufacturers use different chips. My use pretty much limits me to Garmin, and expect to pay couple to $300+ for chips for where I travel.
    • So are you saying what happened to me did not happen ? We not talking about a 4 inch concrete slab , it is a thin layer of gyp crete that covers the pex , it has the consistency of water when poured and sets up fast, it is self leveling and any movement in the pex shows up and cant be undone . Yes if it was fastened continuously it could not move but that would be ridiculous . As so this discussion !  
    •   Just like all the other teams do. He gets the same shot over and over against every team. Not sure how you let a guy with 18 power play goals float like that. Doesn't hurt Bakstrom is setting it all up. You leave him and just cover Ovi and he will light you up.
    • Good looking driveway always enhances the value of the home and attract friends and neighbors. Nowadays, the commonly used paving materials are concrete slabs and paving stones. Concrete slabs are easy to install, but the material takes a time to dry and cure. Whereas, paving stone installation are ready to use immediately upon completion. Like, last month my neighbor had hired the services of driveway paving in Suffolk County contractors to lay a brick paver patio in their garden area. After the completion of installation, it has appreciated the value of their property.
    • Caught a 19" Bass fishing for Crappie last night!!   I was using 2.5" Gulp Minnows on a small Jig catching Crappie and i couldn't get a good pic as it was dark and couldn't get flash to come on my phone.   4 pound test .... nice little fight .... Had a few nice swirls nip my Bobber also five minutes before that.   Crappies were 10" and thin (hungry)  all returned for some catch n release recreational fishing!!   
    • Just wondering if anyone has done this and if so I'd love to see pictures I'm going to make this my spring project 
    • Dude that's pretty awesome data and pics/video.   Way cooler stuff than when I was a middle school kid.
