whoa, lets not get carried away there. Champions? The Red Sox have won one championship in the past 90 years.
btw - if Mirabelli making only 750K is what it takes to be a champion what does this say about Manny and the $17M he is getting this year?
Or the $13M+ that Ortiz, Schilling and Drew are getting? Those guys aren't champions I guess. $9M for Mike Lowell?!?!? $9.5M for Matt Clement?!?!? Looks to me like they are being cheap with Mirabelli - 750K is an insult.
And your team payroll is $145M, more than 4 times the $30M payroll of the Marlins. Yes, the Florida Marlins who have won 2 championships in the past 10 years, those guys are champions.
So put a lid on the enthusiasm over Doug "Champ" Mirabelli
