O's bench Rafael Palmeiro because....


Recommended Posts

I just heard on ESPNews the O's have benched Rafael Palmeiro because there is a clause in his contract which states if he plays a certain number of games he automatically receives a 1.5 million dollar bonus or something along those lines and he is very close to reaching it, so they benched him because the O's don't want to pay it.




Let Raffy play!

John Smoltz has a clause in his contract where he has to close out at least 55-60 games this season to pick up a pretty big bonus, he just has to appear regardless of whether it's a save situation or not which is good for him and Bobby Cox is putting him in as much as possible to get him that bonus, i'm pretty sure he already got it.
