    There is an injury clause in Lackey's deal, and there are also insurance policies for some high-priced players.

    What Larry needs to learn how to do, is to pick players who don't get hurt.

    Mr. Bill - Are you saying that if billion dollar corporations employing millionaire doctors with almost unlimited budgets mis-evaluate the health of potential employees they should have legal/economic recourse should their evaluations prove to be faulty?  Seriously?

    Are you also sure your former shipmates were laughing with you?

    Posted by Bill-806[/QUOTE]Belichick does not work that way because the CBA in NFL does not require guarenteed contracts, the MLB CBA does. Drew and Lackey both had pre-exisiting clauses in their deals but injury does not void a contract. Even in the NFL the team has limitations to how and when they can end a contract when a player is injured.

    I have spoken repeatedly about a tendency for management to roll the dice on high risk reclamation projects. This disturbing need to be considered a genius, (while everyone else saw trash...Theo was brilliant enough to see treasure!), literally drove Theo to make numerous costly mistakes. This in spite of a very obvious truth: the greatest predictor of future serious injury, is a previous history of serious injury. I like the Orioles model. After the Glen Davis+Albert Bell fiascos, they developed a screening process that goes something like this:

    1. If they have a serious injury history, just say no!
    2. If, after saying no, compelling reasons demand that the player be looked at again, LOOK AT HIM! That means exhaustive medical testing of the affected area. The player or agent doesn't want to submit? JUST SAY NO! Anyone without something to hide will agree and willingly want to prove their health. If they pass...
    3. Sign them to a contract acknowledging them as an injury risk. Why should ALL the risk be placed on the team, and none on the player?  And if an injury risk is signed, consider this when considering other injury history players. I don't know how many times I saw Theo add 3,4,5 shocking injury risk players to a team that already had a few. That's just a recipe for disaster! And it hurt us far more often than it helped us.

    While Peter Angelos has driven this once proud franchise into the ground with poor decisions and an unwillingness to spend, this is one area he got right.

    Ticket prices aren't dictated by player salaries.  They are dictated by this concept called Supply and Demand.

    All ball players make to much money, playing and winning aren't important to them anymore.

    Do not kid yourself, all these contracts are offset by medical insurance that the ownership carries on each. Best kept secret in baseball.

    Ticket prices are set to get butts into seats. They are not yet market-priced.
    Of course player salaries affect prices.

    The REAL problem is guaranteed contracts. You'd see a lot more butts on the field and in the conditioning room if pay was reduced/witheld.

    Of course player salaries drive ticket prices! It's especially obvious for a team like the Red Sox that sells out every year. Why do you suppose tickets are so much higher today than say, in 1985?
