Worst contract ever?
Looks like the Dodgers will release Andruw Jones soon. He gets paid 36 million for one season of a .158 average 3 homers, and a defensive contribution that was a cruel joke of what he once was.
It's not the highest amount of money wasted, that would have to go to Mike Hampton or Barry Zito, who were paid over a hundred million for contributions probably worth 10-15 million over the life of the deal (I'm just guessing Barry will continue that path, 2 years into his deal). Considering baseball inflation, maybe someone like Wayne Garland is the worst free agent signing ever.
But Jones deserves some kind of recognition for his big contract and lack of production. The Dodgers would have been no worse off last year sticking the previous night's starting pitcher in the outfield for Jones' atbats.
