Re: Dave Roberts seeking 3 year deal at $5 million per year
Thats just how I feel about it. Worth is a relative term in todays MLB [actually I guess it's always been a relative term] and things have been kicked up a notch [all apologies to Emeril].
We were counting on an increased payroll in last years and years past's market-place, but we are getting an increased payroll based on old salary numbers, we're getting an increased payroll on current salary numbers. That equates to next to nothing in the grand scheme of hopes for being improved and competitive.
Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
Chicago Blackhawks - 10
University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
Cincinnati Bengals - None
Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
