Soriano may be a bad example because of the kind of guy he is but Athletes milk it and they also have perfomance clauses that might not mean **** when you already have collected the bulk of your cash.
    I think like you have pointed out here the cause of a player playing out his contract in full effort would be more indicative of the character of a player rather than how his contract is structured.

    Yea I just saw the report of the numbers. All of the sudden I forgot about Sanchez fiasco. I really can't express how I feel through writing but Jesus my thoughts are with those kids and the parents of those kids, such a tragedy.

    I'm not sure I agree. I mean, yes, the money is fundamentally worth more now, but when dealing with MLB payrolls it could easily be worth that trade-off to ensure maximum flexibility down the road. Particularly for an organization in the Cubs position, with tons of current payroll space and a team that isn't likely to be competitive in the immediate future.

    True, I would prefer our organization not to be signing those cases but in a perfect world one could wish for many things.

    Can we lock and delete this thread so I never have to think of the prospect of Sanchez in a Cub uniform again?

    Thanks,
