Jason Giambis' contract

Postby eftda » Fri Dec 03, 2004 4:19 pm

Lets say the Yankees void the contract (not saying it will happen, but just saying: What if)

What if the void it, who will play first base? Olerud? Yankees can do better then that. Has anyone thought of Delgado?

Even if Giambi stays with the Yankees it wouldnt suprise me if they sign another 1st baseman anyway. Giambi has not performed well for the past 2 years and no with all the steroid issues we have a little more understanding why. I would be suprised if George dosent go throwing some extra money around to get a more guaranteed player.

My best guess as well as my hope is that they sign Tino Martinez.

That would make the most sense to me, but snagging a guy like Delgado for long term would be a smart move too probably since Tino has maybe 1-2 years left in him. :-?

if they were to void the contract then i think sexson and delgado would be the options. of course, they may decide to just use that money on beltran and pitching. it would allow them to send more money with vazquez to get unit or they could pay someone to take brown off their hands and with enough cash get some decent prospects in return. if they were to spend it on pitching then tino is a short term solution.

but i dont think it matters too much. i dont think there is way in hell that contract gets voided.

If we could void Giambi's contract than I would be thrilled.
He is a bum and that has to be one of the worst signings ever. We over payed for a bum on roids :~(

I want Tino Back- we should have never gotten rid of him in the first place

I don't think the Yankees would be able to sign Sexson or Delgado. Maybe this is wishful thinking but the Giambi situation is not going to be resolved quickly. By the time it is resolved Sexson and Delgado will most likely have been signed. With Tino the Yankees can preemptively sign him and it won't be a major burden if they get stuck with Giambi's contract.

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'm a lawyer and can say there are several ways to try to get out of a contract. The operative word, however, is "try." It ain't easy. Usually the easiest way is to read every word in the contract twice to see if there are any terms, representations, or warranties that Giambi violated that would constitute a "material breach" or otherwise give the Yanks the contractual right to terminate. Technically, that's not "voiding" the contract because a "void" contract is one that in effect was never valid to begin with. No doubt the Yanks have a dozen lawyers scouring the contract for any "outs" right now. The other way -- fraudulent inducement -- is much more difficult to prove. The theory would be that Giambi decieved the Yanks in some way in order to secure his contract. In the end, I see this settling outside of court. I doubt neither Giambi or the Yanks want this litigated in public. It would be embarrasing for both.

They are already in talks with Delgado and Sexson.
