i am pretty sure pujols set the record for third year players at 900k. i am surprised miguel was less than 500k. i would have guessed 600-700k.

"I'm happy," Cabrera said. "You have to
put up your numbers every year and see what happens. My time
is coming, you know?"
Be excellent to each other.

He'll get his money once he hits arbitration. The thing of it is, Florida already doubts they can afford him once that happens, and he'll be dealt. I seriously doubt he stays in Florida long-term. Name one guy that has...

not as much as you might think. state income tax is only a few percentage points and he would still have to pay tax on income earned in other states (ie away games).

The Associated Press reports the Florida Marlins signed 3B Miguel Cabrera to a contract that pays him $472,000 in the majors. His contract calls for a $296,000 salary if he's in the minors.


The bolded part actually made me laugh.

I just don't know if he has what it takes to be a success in the majors. He'll be lucky if he makes the team. ;-7

This is just how the system works at this point. Teams get rewarded for bringing players up through their minors by being able to pay them minimal money for their first few years and then getting arbitration. Of course, they get punished once the players reach and go beyond arb. (see: Jack Wilson)

I guess so. I'm just praying this kid doesn't get hurt. How much do you think Cabrera's perceived attitude problems of last year are effecting his relationship with the Marlins at this point?
