IS Cuddy worth 7.66 million??

Recommended Posts

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.

Actually take that money and pay for their own stadium no player is worth that amount.

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.

    • I have had great luck w/ my 3 yr old Big Horn. I have always said that the controller and hopper looked a lot like the Pit Boss       yeah... I'd say you've got options!
    • Actually I got a new 4 burner Char Grill with side burner this spring for up at the camper and a new cheaper 2 burner with side burner a week ago for at home, so alone with the new Char Grill smoker I got last year I have plenty of wienee cookers thanks.  😘  
    • what type of lenses? glass?
    • About 10 years ago I bought a boat that I had to track down a person that was not who I bought the boat from as they owned it many years before that!!!  But I am sure that I got the owners name from the DMV to then track down and had her sign a form, brought back to DMV, and then put into my name.  I am guessing things have changed as to how to get the name, but sounds silly to have to write a letter to get information that they could use proper discretion to give it to you or not.  Good Luck!
    • Traegers are super over-rated and over-priced for what they are. I would rather buy that big horn up above than a Traeger.    I'm fairly certain that Big Horn is just a Pit Boss. Louisiana smokers makes Pit Boss and a bunch of other stuff that other's put their own name on including PF's Cabela's model. I have a small Pit Boss that I am going to use for camping and I like it just fine. I bought that one from a friend for $50 but I'm sure that's still too much for Leech......
    • ok so story time...the one that got away but saw the fish.  I was ice fishing on Red when the eye fishing was still closed and we went out for an early season excursion about a mile out of Westwind.  It was Saturday evening when I my bobber shot down and the fight was on.  Now we were only in probably 5-7 ft of water if that but I "tired" the fish out where I was able to get it directly under the hole and all we could see was a monster northern head filling up the hole!!  No one would put there hand near that thing, let alone blindly through 2.5 ft of ice, so we just watched it for a minute or two float beneath the hole until I tried to turn it up the hole and the line just snapped when he decided he had had enough!!  That was painful not to touch but seeing it and knowing it was all of 44"+ was better than wondering.   Now to the not seen...Ice fishing Waukanabo by Leech in the deep hole on the north end and I see a mark on the bottom and I hook into it and could not budge it off the bottom.  I sat there for a few minutes with rod bent over trying to lift it with nothing but my line slowly moving away until pop it spit my lure!!!  I think the hole is over 40' deep and with 4lb test mono I guess as much as I applied pressure the hook wasn't in!!    What could have been~ so those are two stories that stick out in my mind and of the 2 the second stings more as I have no clue what it could have been and that runs through my mind but the northern as cool as it would have been to touch measure and what not, to see it and to know how massive it was, makes it "easier" to deal with. 
    • Sorry for the delayed response.    Checked in at the Lac Seul Resort on Wednesday, June 6, and checked out on Monday, June 11. Anticipating our usual needs, I preordered 200 dozen minnows and a pound of leeches from KA Sports & Tackle in Dryden for 10 guys to fish for 4-1/2 days.    This was the first time in 20 years that we actually had bait left over at the end. I gave away about 30 dozen minnows to a neighboring cabin because they didn't have any.    We found the morning bite to be slow for some reason but the evening bite was better. Most activity was found in moving water on the English River. On Friday evening another guy and myself went to Pelican Rapids and from 6:00pm till about 9:30pm we figured we boated over 200 walleyes and a few northnerns. Unfortunately, they were all between 15" - 17" in length and we were looking for the 17" - 18" size for the freezer. That's always our goal for fish we intend to take home.    The following night we went back and although the fish weren't biting quite as fast they were larger. Over the same time frame we figured we only boated about 100 walleyes but the size ranged more in the 17" - 22" size.    Overall we had a few walleyes caught in the 25" - 28" range with the largest of the week at 28.25". Northern pike were active with many caught in the 31" - 34" range. Didn't boat any in the 40" range as we usually do but those lower 30-inchers sure put up a fight.    Also found a few nice smallies and whitefish as usual.    Most fish were found in the 10' - 14' depth range, which was unusual compared to previous years when we caught them in shallow water along the shorelines.    Great weather with steady winds out of the southerly directions, which is what we always hope for but never get and nobody got hurt. Another successful year for us.
    • Seeing the fish is probably my preference since I would probably release it anyway. The only unfortunate thing would be not having a photo of it.
