Tim Dierkes obviously hit a nerve with his post about the 45 worst contracts in MLB. In BtB's quest to tackle mainstream topics from a saber point of view, I'd like to create a similar list, with BtB readers determining the 25 worst contracts. Here's how I see the process working:
- You suggest the worst contracts in the comments of this post. Feel free to add commentary to persuade others.
- You Recommend comments to "second" the nominations you agree with.
- Assuming we get enough nominations, I'll take the top fifty by rec's and create a poll where you can pick your top ten. That should yield a good overall ranking.
I'm open to methodology suggestion, so throw them in the comments.
So, which players are signed to the worst contracts in MLB?
Update (five minutes after posting): To make things easier, let's use only current MLB contracts, name one contract per comment, and list the contract's value, length, and any other relevant information. Thanks.
