LAT: $100-million men: Do mega-deals make for mightier ball players?

I think one thing about the article was absolutely correct.  Very rarely do players get better when they sign these mega deals.  In most of the cases, they are already at the peak of their game.  What you are paying for is the hope that they continue to produce at the same levels.  

 

In most cases, the player will see some form of decrease in production eventually.  And unfortunately for us, some will see a severe decrease.

The paper version of that article included a table that showed all the contracts and their average annual numbers before and after signing. Surprisingly most of them were reasonably close, although to be fair a lot of the guys are in the beginning of their current deals and will certainly tail off towards the end.

Yeah, that's the one thing I hate about the online version.  That was a good chart.

Pujols = on pace for worst contract ever?

That includes A-Fraud's 2nd big contract.

 

Absolutely. I don't see how this is in doubt.

Angels are currently on the hook for three of the four worst contracts of all time:

 

Albert Pujols, Josh Hamilton, Vernon Wells

 

$445M of Moreno's money for those three.
