Barry Bonds salary strategy

Postby Webster11 » Tue Feb 14, 2006 7:15 pm

When will Bonds retire? The reason I ask is that I just drafted him in an auction league for the price of 7,555,000 but the contracts in the league are structured so that a one year deal the first year contract is 7,555,000 but a 5 year deal the first year contract is only 6,044,000. If I sign him to 5 year deal the contract is void as soon as he retires so I would owe no more money on his contract the second he retires, the risk involved with this is that if he continues to play but doesnt produce I would still be forced to pay him a big contract. What is the best strategy for this situation? Thanks

1 Year contract
yr 1 - $7,555,000

2 year contract
yr 1 - $6,799,500
yr 2 - $8,310,500

3 year contract
yr 1 - $6,421,750
yr 2 - $7,555,000
yr 3 - $8,688,250

4 year contract
yr 1 - $6,421,750
yr 2 - $6,799,500
yr 3 - $8,310,500
yr 4 - $8,688,250

5 year contract
yr 1 - $6,044,000
yr 2 - $6,799,500
yr 3 - $7,555,000
yr 4 - $8,310,500
yr 5 - $9,066,000

sign him to a five year deal. He will either retire this year or next and you be will off the hook.

What is the cap?

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

I agree. I don't think he'll hang around much longer, especially if he doesn't have it anymore. I don't like him, but he just doesn't seem like the type to keep it going after he's lost it.
