Angels - Reportedly Signed Sarge Lite
Los Angeles Angels - Signed “CF” Gary Matthews Jr. to a 5-year, $55 million contract.
I am aghast. “The Gary Matthews Jr. Contract” should be the baseball equivalent of The Aristrocrats for years to come. I’d say more, but I think the resultant nannying would single-handedly shut down the internets, the google, and all the pipes and buttons that make the internet go. If anyone here is a fan of HBO’s The Wire, think of the scene where McNulty and Bunk are investigating the murder of the young woman who was trying to get hush money from Avon Barksdale in the first season. Based on relative ability, J.D. Drew should start asking for a 17-year, Eleventy Billion dollar contract.
Quiz Time! Which following players have a worse career OPS+ than Gary Matthews Jr.?
Armando Rios, Mitch Webster, Darin Erstad, Marvin Benard, Wes Ferrell, Barry Bonnell, Alex Ochoa, Darryl Hamilton. Answer at the bottom.
Answer: Barry Bonnell.
