    Still, this huge contract, along with Broglio, will barely get me over the 60M mark.

    I feel a pretty hefty bid coming up on old Eddie Mathews now! Still got some real decent seasons left in the old body.

    --Even with iron glove vs gold one, I'd rather have Hart and the difference in salary. That said, I had budgeted up to 17M on Robinson before making the Boyer deal.

    You're not kidding. I think I feel as good about Hart as you must have felt about Monbouquette after the Pizzaro signing.

    Actually, Hart is an average fielder range wise, although his error rating was a tad high. But after Brooksies 64 MVP season, Hart is better offensively every year and a LOT cheaper! The Boyer trade was an excellent one for you, Mark.

    --Last up in the live auction is Eddie Mathews. Eddie is slowing down a little, but still brings alot of pop to the 3B spot on a 3 year deal.

    Yeah, I couldn't believe I got Monbo for 2.5M. I was ready to go quite a bit higher.

    --It was great for 64, but he is strictly a rental. I won't be paying him 9M for his 91 OPS+ next year. Still a 4M platoon of Gilliam and Wert doesn't look too bad for 65 all things considered.

    I was thinking of giving him a run, but felt sure that nobody would be willing to give Pizzaro a multi-year deal. Oh well; just have to pick up some really cruddy innings eater for the back of the rotation.

    Mark;

    Where can I find the rules on contract buyouts? Is it in the rules thread?

    That should work out OK for you.

    Jim - It should be in the rules thread, but here's a copy of that section (Section 4, Sub. F):

    F. Players on multi-year contracts may have the remainder of their deal bought out for one half of the total remaining value of the contract during the non-tender perod. For example, a player on a 3 year/10M per year deal could have the 2nd and 3rd years bought out for a 10M cap hit in year 2 or a 5M cap hit in year 3.

    If you're wondering, it would cost Mac 9.75M (assuming a three year deal) to buy out the last two years, or 5M (rounding up to stay with 250K increments) to buy out just the third year, by my calculations.

    Gold Sox announce that Brooks Robinson will receive an unprecedented 5 year, 90 million dollar contract.

    That's what I thought. Heck of a price to pay for one year of a guy.

    --Basically Mac would be paying Pizzaro 19.5M for one season, but paying it out over 2 years. Pizzaro is very good in 64, but not THAT good IMO. He does shield Norm Cash, but Cash isn't worth 19.5M either.
