Is the per month figure all year round or just the months of the season. What about spring training?

Baseball contracts are only paid during the season. They get expenses for spring training.

Something I’ve always wondered but never heard discussed:how come teams don’t front end the money on deals. If the team has money to spend today, it becomes a win-win situation for everybody: the player gets his money sooner, and as a player’s production decreases with age, the contract will also reflect his true value. Makes trading an older player a lot easier too, as it is difficult to move a $25 million per year contract of an aging slugger.

Bill, the most likely reason they don’t front end the money is because of the time value of money. Money is worth more today than in the future. So it makes sense to have more of the total value in the back end, because that money is worth less in the future, because of inflation, interest rates, opportunity cost, etc. It is really more financial than baseball related

if we could see more minor league contracts as they are announced that would be awesome. im one of those that likes to see that sort of thing

So, Schneider gets $100,000 if he’s the league MVP? I’d have negotiated that figure at about $100,000,000.

And Furcal signed with the Cardinals for 2 years at $12 million. Jimmy? Running out of options.

How hard would Schneider have to play to get league MVP?? Seems kind of insulting. “we really doubt you’ll get this one BUT on the 100000/1 off chance that you do….”

What does “Agreement for Major League contract for $135,000. $495,000 in Majors”, mean? What is the differnce? Thanks.

Let’s see if Sanchez can revive his dying career. Hopefully, Dubee will be able to figure out the cause of his inconsistancies and help him get back on track.

If you want to buy expensive pearls which might be
perfectly matched, an unbiased gemologist certificate is essential.
In being married event, many folks are involved aside from
the bride and groom. These elements can weaken
the silk and result in a potential break point.

Their rarity has historically made fancy colored diamonds very
highly prized in comparison with colorless crystals normally related to these gemstones.
Even in those very early times, the requirement of humans to
wear ornaments is evident. Consider, for instance, a good looking
diamond-studded cross pendant.
