A poster over at Sons of Sam Horn has the details of Hideki Okajima’s contract, supplied by an "unimpeachable industry source". We love some of the incentives:
- $50,000 for Gold Glove
- $100,000 for MVP ($50,000 for 2nd; $25,000 for 3rd)
- $150,000 for Cy Young ($100,000 for 2nd; $75,000 for 3rd)
We figure the Sox can dole out that 300K somewhere else (urinal cakes with a certain team’s logo on it throughout the basins at the Fens, for a start?). No reason to save the cash for the rainy day that is never coming.
