Walt getting short changed?

Postby Pogotheostrich » Fri Jan 28, 2005 4:40 pm

The Cardinals seem to be trying to lowball Jocketty.

It's been an amazing run of unparallel success by Walt Jocketty and the fact that the Cardinals contract offer of a three-year, $2.1 million extension — paying him $650,000, $700,000 and $750,000 — is well below market price considering Jocketty's tenure and his contributions to the St. Louis Cardinals.

Wow, I'm not sure what other GM's make, but considering he's made them arguably the third best team in baseball that is a really bad offer. :-P If the GM of the Tigers and Rangers make $2million+ a year Walt should be making $4-$5million per. 8-o

Ow, that's a pretty insulting offer to a class guy.

It's even worse that they let the offer get public. They should quickly retract it and at least put him up in the top third of GMs.

Larussa makes $1.5 mil/yr. link

They have to do better than this.

Terrible. Do they want Jocketty to follow Renteria out the door?

:-t

Show him the money!
