He likes the Mets picking up Alou. He thinks its clear that every team is rolling in money and have a lot to spend.
    Chris chirps about a lot of things. How is $5.5M over 2 years a lot of money. That's practically the league minimum in this market.

    Agreed.

    According to CBS Sportline, the MLB average salary for 2006 was $2,866,544.

    That figure will rise this year.

    At $5.5 million over two years, Stanton will average $2,750,000 per year.

    So if Staton is a little below average, we'll be paying the going rate.
    Makes all the routine posts.

    Average salary for what? Middle relief? $2.75 million is a lot for a 39 yr old reliever. I think other positions raise that average up just a tad.

    I'm not liking this signing at all.

    You're right. Russo reported that it was 8 mill. for two years. Typical.

    Me neither. This is what we got Cormier for. The cash goes quick buying and tossing RPs at over $2 mm a pop.

    (Yeah, I know Cormier isn't good...but then why'd we get him...contract extension and all).
