2010-06-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Where does the Gary Matthews, Jr. contract rank among the all-time worst?
(Tom from Madison)
It's up there because it was so first-guessable. You had a 31-year-old journeyman with six full seasons under his belt who had had a year way over his head in a hitter's park. There was almost no chance that he'd do it again. Somehow the Angels missed that, or relied on scouting information that said, "Yup, yup! It's for real!" When considering these contracts, I always think back to one of the first free agent deals, that between the Indians and pitcher Wayne Garland for 1977. He was a 25-year-old coming off a 20-7, 2.67 ERA season for the Orioles, but with weak peripherals. The Tribe gave him a 10-year deal. He went 28-48 with a 4.50 ERA over the five years before his arm quit. (Steven Goldman)
