'Good' Jones gets superstar money
December, 6, 2007
Just a few observations in the wake of the Dodgers signing Andruw Jones for two years and $36.2 million ... • Not that we needed more evidence, but when you consider Jones' new deal with Torii Hunter's, it's apparent that MLB's economics really have changed, and somewhat radically. It wasn't long ago that only the very best players, the superstars, earned more than $15 million per season. But now Jones and Hunter are earning $18 million per season, and neither qualifies as a superstar.
