from the same GQ article that that picture came from...

Quote:
Over there, in the Bronx, Reyes and Wright’s combined 2006 salary of $775,500 would have bought you a whopping twenty-four innings of play from Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez.
so in reality, who really is the most valuable player(s)?

Francisco Liriano: $327,000
Jonathan Papelbon: $335,400

I'm sure there are other strong contenders for the bang-per-buck award.

Gary Jr. ain't worth 10 mil per season.
Glavine should stay with the Mets. Things are different for the Braves since he left. He shouldn't go back there. The Mets will again be top contenders in NL. It's a bad move. But maybe good ol' Tommy's heart is in Atlanta.

That one catch on SportsCenter made him a really rich man.

The Angels must be out of their minds.

Years of failure to get protection for Vlad from GM Stan D Pat has caused him to forego all common sense and baseball logic.

take that back ! don't you say a bad word about Mr. Wright

He'll have plenty of post season heroics before his time is done.

Come on, he was a young kid playing in his first postseason. If David Wright stinks for 3 postseasons in a row then by all means pounce on him.

that's one post season appearance for Mr, Wright.

what has Arod done in the playoffs recently?

2-15 against the Angels
1-14 against the Tigers

.077 BA in last 2 post season appearances.

How is someone overrated who has only really played two full seasons and made one playoff appearance?

Give him a few more chances before comparing him to Peyton Manning.

No Zip, Wright's the real thing...I agree give him another playoff and see what happens.
