Personally, this is harder to find out, but I think getting married in the off-season has an adverse effect.
If you think about it, not much is as big a life changer than getting married. So now, you are distracted, establishing a household, you have another person's conisderations etc. It makes you career seem a little smaller.
These aren't baseball examples, but they are off the top of my head. Tiger Woods and Donovan McNAbb had "off seasons" after getting amrried, I believe Shaq did as well.
In other words, I believe the contract year thing. But its too hard to predict, as some people really thrive on pressure, while others perform better when they don't have uncertainty. Without being in the locker room, its too tough to tell.
