Wow. $46M. That’s $9.2M per year, if you do the funny math. That’s Josh Beckett money (starting next year). Or slightly less than Gil Meche Money. Or it’s Daisuke money, if you do funny math for Kei and not-funny math for Daisuke. Or it’s three times JC Romero money, if you do the unfunny math and forget to include the Luxury Tax hit, which then turns it into 75% Matt Clement money. Though I have now lost interest in doing math, so who knows what it is.
In any case, that’s a lotta scratch for a guy who might be mopping up this year. Or spending the bulk of his downtime in the Sheep Meadow scaring the bejeezus out of a bunch of hacky-sacking stoners from Collegiate.
