Wanna see something that will make you sick?

Its Pat Burrell's contract. Pat is due to make $13M plus bonuses. Bonus? Don't worry he won't see a penny of this bonus. When I was reading this over, I found it comical that the Phillies put in a MVP bonus for Burrell. Man, Ed Wade sure did have high hopes for Pat the Bat. MVP BONUS: $100,000 for 1st place, $75,000 for 2nd, $50,000 for 3rd. How much do get for 1243628917th place. Oh...nothing...damn.
