Bad Contracts

0

John Perrotto

John reviews the biggest deals from this winter, and names his list of the ten worst free agent signings of all time.

Enough big-money contracts were given to free agents this past offseason to make anyone's head spin. Barry Zito and Carlos Lee became beneficiaries of two of the only 14 nine-digit contracts in baseball history. The Giants lured Zito across the bay from Oakland for seven years and $126 million, while the Astros got Lee, the slugging left fielder and Panamanian cattle rancher, to stay in-state by signing him away from the Texas Rangers for six years and $100 million. In all, nine free agents signed contracts worth at least $45 million despite the class of available players being considered below average. However, the deals given to Zito and Lee were as much head scratchers as head spinners.

While Zito is seemingly coming into the prime of his career at 28, he has been on a downward trend since 2004. In his first four major-league seasons from 2000-03, Zito was 61-29 with a 3.12 ERA in 119 starts, and boasted nine-inning rates of 7.2 hits, 10.9 baserunners, 7.2 strikeouts, and 3.4 walks. Over the past three seasons, Zito went 41-34 with a 4.05 ERA in 103 starts and his nine-inning rates were 8.3 hits, 12.5 baserunners, 6.6 strikeouts, and 3.7 walks. PECOTA doesn't expect Zito to suddenly transform back into the pitcher who went 22-5 and won the American League Cy Young Award in 2002, projecting mediocrity in his next five seasons. Most telling is that PECOTA projects Zito's worth, in terms of MORP, from 2007-11 to be $34 million. Conversely, the Giants will be paying him $80 million in that span.

Christina is more optimistic about the Padres' infield switcheroo than most, and the Yankees reverse the natural course of things by swapping salary for prospects.

The Red Sox make some minor moves, perhaps warming up for something bigger. The Braves get a lot healthier, as do the Padres. Plus, Al Leiter comes full circle.

In a transcript from BP Radio's interview with Pete Rose, he talks candidly about reinstatement, steroids, the current state of the game, and more.

[Editor's note: Unlike most BP Q&A's, this was originally done for the radio format. We have edited interjections, pauses, and vocalizations for readability. You can hear the full version of the interview on the May 14, 2005 edition of Baseball Prospectus Radio.]

Joe Sheehan

Joe Sheehan checks in from New Orleans for the first installment in the series of daily reports he'll be filing from the winter meetings. Today, a look at the Kevin Brown trade, the Miguel Batista signing, and the Mariners' botching of their outfield situation.

So regardless of what happens over the next few days, what big trades get made, what bad signings occur, or whatever other events may transpire, I'm going to have a hard time wiping the smile off my face.
