  • Mike Hampton season likely over

    Linkage

    I really like Hampton but hate the Braves so its a wash in my book.

    I think that will hurt Andruw Jones in the MVP voting.

      Ugh - and how much do the Braves owe him next year? Or is he a FA?

        13.5M in 2006 (2M paid by COL), 14.5M in 2007 (2M paid by COL), 15M in 2008 (2.5M paid by COL), and in 2009 a Team Option worth 20M or 6M buyout (buyout would be paid by COL in 1.5M annual installments from 2009 to 2012)-

          The Braves owe that piece of shit $46 M from '06-'08. He's 53-48 since signing his $124 M contract after the 2000 season.

            Yaks is going to be less than happy.
            But, this just proves that Andruw deserves the MVP because he carried the Braves on his back and pitched in the number 3/4 hole the rest of the season.
            He's just clutch.

              36.5 by my calculations but who is counting. Either way that contract was absolutely horrible.

                  The ultimate bad free agent contract, and it keeps on giving.

                  And how close were the Cards to signing him: thank barry for STL schools.

                        Funny thing to is that Hampton ended up moving his family back to Houston after a few months of having them live in Denver. That was a BS excuse any damn way and everyone knew it. All about the Bengamins.

                          Atlanta is responsible for $13.5 in '06, $14.5 in '07, and $15 in '08. Florida and Colorado are completely off the hook for those seasons. I don't know who's responsible for the $6M buyout in '09.

                          I'm happy that Shuerholz has nothing to show for the 'free' years.

                            Hampton will come back and win the Cy Young... and inspire kids everywhere to throw their arms out and get T-J.
