and now my head hurts. I wonder if he gets extra if he pitches on July 4th, during a hail storm, followed by a stampede of elephants and one baby zebra?
The Mets confirmed Monday that Tom Glavine has restuctured his contract to include an option for 2007.
Glavine's 2006 salary was reduced from $10.5 million to $7.5 million under the terms of the deal. The new contract contains a 2007 player option at $5.5 million and a $12 million team option, both with a $3 million buyout. The player option would increase by $1 million each for 180, 190 and 200 innings this year, and the team option would increase by $2 million if he throws 180 innings this year. If either option is exercised, and Glavine's 2007 salary is less than $14 million, he could have performance bonuses that would raise his earnings that year to $14 million.
