What does $76.5 million buy?

What does $76.5 million buy? Not much when Ruben Amaro is doing the shopping. Cliff Lee, Roy Halladay, Ryan Howard, and Chase Utley are collectively making $76.5M this season.

Collective 2012 Stats: 
Offense- .255 AVG (12-46), 3 R, 2 RBI.

Pitching- 21 GS, 143 IP, 4-8 record, 130 K, 3.59 ERA, 1.10 WHIP.

The Toronto Blue Jays, Arizona Diamondbacks, Tampa Bay Rays, Pittsburgh Pirates, Kansas City Royals, Houston Astros, Oakland Athletics, and San Diego Padres all have lower payrolls than those four players.

I am sick.

how much salary on the DL right now?

ACSmitty79 said...

too much of that Salary is on the DL for me to blame Amaro.

GM-Carson said...


$20M of that is for Howard. Howard's contract is solely Amaro's fault. Imagine if Howard were set to hit free agency after that injury in the NLDS. Yeah, he might still be a free agent right now, and sure as hell wouldn't have gotten 5 years $125M.

When does football season start?

I see Utley is going to start playing real games in Clearwater. Anyone have any insight on just what he has been doing to the knees that got him from hobbled cripple to this point? And will all his off seasons have to last longer than his seasons from now on?

GM-Carson said...

Utley is actually dead. They are just reanimating him to sell tickets in Clearwater.

Ben said...

If he's dead, we should trade him to the Yankees where they have no soul!!!!!!!
