Worst Deal Yet
This is the deal I was referring to yesterday, and now that the Washington Post is reporting it, I’ll stick it on the blog. The Yankees are going to sign Jaret Wright to a 3 year contract that, with incentives, will be worth around $23 million. The guaranteed money is quite a bit lower, but this is still an insane amount of money to give a guy with his track record.
It appears that the winners of this offseason will be those who avoid the middle class entirely. It’s a great time to be a midly effective right-handed pitcher.
