    Other way around:

    Three weeks after the right-hander reportedly agreed to a major league deal with the Orioles, the club announced Friday night that it has instead signed Jurrjens to a minor league deal with an invitation to major league spring training...

    According to sources, Jurrjens and the Orioles agreed to a one-year, $1.5 million major league deal (with $2.5 million more available in bonuses) on Jan. 25, pending a physical. The results of that physical became a sticking point, though, especially because of the nagging problems Jurrjens has had with his right knee.

    But the team still felt good enough about Jurrjens’ outlook to give him a minor league deal.

    Once again, the two seasons prior to that he played in 150 games.

    Travis Hafner is a guy that "can't stay on the field." Brett Gardner has not proven to be that type of player, and it's disingenuous at best (downright dumb at worst) to paint him with that brush. But hey, it fits your narrative. Were you one of the posters that thought Gardner was (is?) a 4OF for a bad team?
    We'll have to ask Nick Johnson if bone injuries qualify a player as fragile. Both Johnson and Gardner have had their share.

    There is no comparison between the health of Nick Johnson & Brett Gardner.

    Babe Ruth and Brett Gardner are both lefties who have played the outfield for the New York Yankees.

    Clearly they are similar players.

    I just called him. When I told him about your comparison, the amount of dumb in it made his spleen rupture.

    KFC@KFCBarstool The 2 highest paid #Mets outfielders this year are Jason Bay and Bobby Bonilla. That is literally unbelievable.

    That can't be true. They're still paying Bobby Bonilla?

    Mat Gamel has re-torn his his ACL and will miss the entire season after missing all but 21 games in '12. You've got to feel bad for him.

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/sports...286_story.html
    PHOENIX — Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Mat Gamel has torn the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee for the second time in less than a year and will miss the season.

    The 27-year-old was injured May 1 at San Diego when he hit a wall while chasing Nick Hundley’s foul popup, cutting short his season after 21 games. Gamel reinjured the knee Saturday during Milwaukee’s first full-squad workout this year.

    An MRI Sunday revealed the extent of the injury.

    “It’s a tear of the middle portion of the repair, “There are failures — 10 percent seems to be the historical number. But of those failures, they’re mostly at either end” of the ligament.

    Ash said Gamel’s knee checked out fine in late January in Milwaukee and again during a spring training physical on Feb. 12.

    They deffered a lot of money at a pretty nice interest rate. I believe because they were making much more in their Madoff hedge fund. Oops.

    I read up on it. Instead of giving him a 6 million buyout, they decided to give him $1.19 million per year from 2011-2036. Unreal.

    He's got to be devastated. After 2 ACL tears, I'd probably hear "footsteps" every time I really pushed it.

    The unhappy outfielder, owed $5.9 million in the final season of his contract, was placed on unconditional-release waivers Monday after agreeing to defer his salary for 12 years. It will compound at an 8 percent annual rate.

    "It was a distraction and a problem we needed to address this off-season," Mets General Manager Steve Phillips said.

    Bonilla, 36, will receive 25 equal payments of $1,193,248.20 each July 1 from 2011 to 2035, according to the revised contract, a total of $29,831,205.

    That was, and remains, completely mind boggling. How on earth the Mets' FO saw this as advantageous is an absolute mystery.
