Yeah ok. He's overpaid, no doubt. I was thinking his salary was in the

neighborhood of $8-10M which would be reasonable. At $15M...I guess that is indefensible.

Between his ($15M), W Davis ($18M), Bryan Shaw ($9M), M Dunn ($9M), and J McGee ($9M), that's $60M worth of mostly hot garbage. I guess any way you slice it, the Rox are paying several guys for production that is somewhere between Mediocre and Dumpster Fire. And I think most of those guys are locked in at least through 2020 which means they'll limp through next year much like this year since they can't afford to add anyone.

Meanwhile the Padres just keep calling up high-ceiling young talent and the Dodgers will continue to be the class of the division.

I guess it could be worse...the Giants are locked into big salaries for Posey ($22M), Cueto ($21M), Longoria ($14.5 - $19.5M), Samardzija ($18M), Crawford ($15M) and Belt ($15M) - all very blah at this point - through anywhere between 2021 (Samardzija) to 2024 (Longoria). So...I guess we don't have the WORST contract situation in the division...
