I know it should seem obvious, but in MLB today, it really doesn't seem to catch on. You see guys like Eric Milton and Juan Castro who have better, cheaper options behind them getting guaranteed spots on a roster just because of the amount of money that they are making. I sincerely doubt that either of these two guys will be very instrumental in helping the team win ballgames, and maybe, especially in Little Miltie's case, may actually cost the team more victories than they would directly impact. So here's the question, with guaranteed contracts in baseball, if there is a track record where a guy has shown you that he's not going to be very good, and goes out and gets rocked in spring training, doesn't it make sense to cut your losses and give him his release? He's going to make his money regardless, but wouldn't you rather have someone in his place who gives your team a better chance at winning than he does? Shouldn't that be a policy of a competitive team? Or maybe I'm crazy.
