Baseball's 'awash' in money
Look no further than Scott Eyre's new contract.
It might, on its face, seem preposterous for the Cubs, a team without an outfield, to commit $11 million to a 34-year-old relief pitcher with a 4.52 career ERA. As one wag put it, "If Eyre is getting this much, what are Farnsworth and Gordon going to get? This is just crazy. Absolutely crazy."
