A-Rod's contract details

Postby KCollins1304 » Thu Dec 13, 2007 1:33 pm

http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=3153171

Rodriguez receives salaries of $27 million next year, $32 million in 2009 and 2010, $31 million in 2011, $29 million in 2012, $28 million in 2013, $25 million in 2014, $21 million in 2015 and $20 million in each of the final two years.


I like the way this breaks down, I think $20M will be pretty ordinary by 2016 and 2017.

I like the breakdown as well.Yanks usually back load contracts(ie-Giambi) so maybe this will be a new approach.

I wish every GM would pay the least money at the end of a long contract , instead of saying "stuff the next GM , lets defer all the cash to when I won't be running this place"

In a funny way it's well done Cashman.

(In 2009 A-Rod will be getting paid twice the amount of the Marlins entire payroll :-D )

That makes the 10-year deal easier to swallow. ;-D

Alex Rodriguez said during an interview with 60 Minutes that he and agent Scott Boras are not speaking to each other.
Rodriguez indicated that he's upset over the way Boras handled negotiations with the Yankees. "The whole situation saddens me a little bit," Rodriguez said. "There hasn't been much back-and-forth talking. When I realized things were going haywire, at that point I said wait a minute I've got to be accountable for my own life. This is not going the way I wanted it to go, so I got behind the wheel."

I don't think Boras will care a whole lot for A-Rod, now that he has pocketed his cut of the $270 mil +.
What he did was pretty reckless ,and he still got rewarded :-t :-t :-t
A-Rod should tell him to get lost.

I like the way this breaks down, I think $20M will be pretty ordinary by 2016 and 2017.

This is definately better than backloading it, but I'm not sure if $20M will be ordinary for players in their 40s as will be ARod's case. I think a little levity is order here. Fact is NYY probably got desperate and ARod took advantage. Putting the signing bonus into the seasons they come due adds to the tallies posted. Also the incentive bonuses can only be looked on one way. They should be so easily attainable that they are essentially guaranteed dollars-if he doesn't reach them they got royally screwed on the $275M, did they not? Lets make the following extremely conservative projections as ARod ages thru the contract. He hits 46HR next yr, then loses 2 off that sum for each of the 1st 4 yrs, 4 less each of the next 4, and 6 less eash of the last 2. Here's how his salary REALLY reads:
2008 - 27M +2M signing = 29M (assume 46HR to 564) turns 33 in Jul
2009 - 32M +1M signing = 33M (assume 44HR to 608) turns 34
2010 - 32M +1M signing = 33M (assume 42HR to 650) turns 35
2011 - 31M +1M signing + 6M for passing Mays = 38M (assume 40HR to 690) turns 36
2012 - 29M +1M signing + 6M for passing Ruth = 36M (assume 36HR to 726) turns 37
2013 - 28M +1M signing + 6M for passing Aaron = 35M (assume 32HR to 758) turns 38
I'll assume Bonds gets to 780
2014 - 25M +3M signing + 12M for tying and passing Bonds = 40M (assume 28HR to 786) turns 39 -almost a difft kind of 40/40 :-o
2015 - 21M (assume 24 HR to 810) turns 40
2016 - 20M (assume 18 HR to 828) turns 41
2016 - 20M (assume 12 HR to 840) turns 42
That's $305M that he either earns easily or was woefully overpaid to fail

What I meant by ordinary was ordinary for a yearly salary for a decent player in free agency, compared to $12-15M that decent free agents make now (like Guillen and Rowand). As far as the $305M, the Yankees are going to make a killing off of A-Rod while he pursues Bonds record and over the length of the contract. Plus, I'm not too worried about the money since it isn't mine. :-b

20 million should look great 10 years down the road especially for a guy chasing the homerun record.

The main factor is to have the image of A-Rod in a Yankees uniform if he breaks the record obviously. It's all about legacy and the contract will be worth every penny to have the all-time homerun champion in all of the history books with a Yankees uniform on.
