The Thieving Bastards: Baseball’s All-Time Worst Contract Team

June 18, 2008

A sample, starting at third base, Bobby Bonilla.

Third Base: Bobby Bonilla – Team Captain
Team: New York Mets
Contract: $1.19M/year from 2011 to 2035
No, you’re not reading that wrong. When Bonilla was released by the Mets, he was due $5.9M. Instead, the Mets agreed to pay him the above sum for the above length of time. You can’t make this kind of stuff up.

Only 2 Detroit Tigers on here…now if this was football……

Big contract, little reward
