What a mistake. 17 million dollars a year. 29 total homeruns. We have paid the guy almost 2 million dollars per homerun. Ugh.


The Mets never signed him. They traded for him, unless my memory is completely whacked.


You are right Trans. ;-D The Mets traded to get Vaughn and his contract.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Yeah. Both teams were looking to get rid of each player and it seemed to fit both needs at the time. The Mets even renegotiated his contract to give them a lower number in the present for future money. They are gonna remember him for a while. Hopefully, insurance will cover a big portion when he retires. I guess that the Gods are punishing them for signing Appier for something like 3 years/$30 million.

Mo Vaughn - 1B - New York Mets Oct 24

Mo Vaughn, troubled by a arthritic left knee, may announce his retirement this winter.
Since he has a year remaining on his contract, Mo may do the Albert Belle thing and spend the year on the 60-day disabled list. However, it appears tthat his career is over. "I've been preparing for it for a while now, and I've had a lot of time to think about it," Vaughn said. "If it has to be that way, I'm going to be fine. I'm doing a lot of different things already. Either way I'm going to be all right." Source: Boston Herald


If he'd retire, it would save the Mets some money.......


does he have a choice.... Last I heard, After the "8th" opinion is that he was done physically.
Well he was done physically a couple of years ago, but that is a different story.
I guess he could just ride out his contract, or is he a FA? I should check but I am to lazy . :-)


Vaughn is under contract. He can sit back and collect the money. Didn't you read the article? It's right there. It's that "Karma" thing again, isn't it? :-D

Here, I'll show you again:
