What's bad about that? He's still the greatest hitter in the game, he just started off the season in a slump. Besides, he still has a .488 OBP because he gets walked all the time. This makes him EXTREMELY valuable to the Giants and definitely worth 18 mil. You must still be bitter about the whole 'roids thing, huh? :-b

Werent Belle and Vaughn being paid like 10 million for a few years when they never played a game?

Hampton's isn't that bad. The Braves amortized the money so they're only paying him 8 Million a year. Considering the price for an average pitcher nowadays, 8 million a year for Hampton, who was getting pretty damn good before he got hurt, isn't too bad.

Kerry Wood p
3 years/$32.5M (2004-06), plus $13.5M 2007 option
$3M signing bonus (paid $1M annually, 2004-06)
04:$7M, 05:$8.5M, 06:$11M, 07:$13.5M mutual option ($3M buyout)
2007 option vests with 400 IP 05-06, but Wood has right to opt for free agency
no-trade clause 2004-06
$75,000 for All Star selection

Over the span of the contract...

11W, 216.1 IP, 230 K, 3.99 ERA

$32.5M for a total of one season's worth of work. :-P

Throw in Brad Radke as well...

Brad Radke p
2 years/$18M (2005-06)
05:$9M, 06:$9M
no-trade clause

Even though Sexy's struggling for the moment, I don't think his contract was that bad.

the one deal that stands out of my mind is a few years back the A's signed David Justice, I dont know how much he got, but he sure was a dud, coming off the year playing in the world series against the d-backs, the A's had high hopes on him, but he was really bad

With Jason Kendall, it's not a bad deal, he turned around the season for the A's last year, guiding the rookie pitchers(haren,blanton)

As for E. Loiza, right on the money. Suprised you dont have on higher, I wonder why we signed him for that much, I bet no one was thinking of giving a mediocre nats pitcher that much money, He is a dud now too
