this seems more like the Rays gave Balfour a hometown bonus!
The Mets extended an identical offer to Balfour, a source told ESPNNewYork.com, but Balfour chose the Rays because he lives in the area.
“We’ve had some exceptional teams,” Rays owner Stu Sternberg said. “We want to give this organization the best chance to win, and we know it’s going to cost us more than we can afford to pay.”
I can sort of see their point after signing Brian Roberts for 4 years and $40 million and have him play 59, 39, 17, and 77 games over that contract.
Seems like an odd quote from Sternberg there.
