A lousy half million. DOH!
Texas last offer was $6.5 million over two years, and he's going to sign with Atlanta for $7 million. That stinks. It's not even a full half million difference since we don't have a state tax in Texas.
No state tax? Lucky bastards. In Ontario we pay 15%
Nope, no state tax in Texas. That's why some deals are so dumb. Remember the deal Randy Johnson got with Arizona? I believe it was $44 million? Texas offered $42 million for the same number of years (I think the numbers are right, but I'm positive that the Rangers offered $2 million less). Guess what? RJ would have made more money here because of no state tax.
One of these days, the players will realize that. I blame Ranger's management for not making sure that the free agents they are talking to know about it as well.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
