With the recent Upton contract it just blows my mind. 15 million a year for a player who averages .255 20 HR and 75 RBI. Not to mention other recent contracts from other years such as Werth's contract. If anything it shows we actually are getting a good deal with Wright if you go by today's value of mediocre players bc he will be only making 3 mil a year more than Upton. I remember when big name players who hit .300 30 HRs and 100 RBI were the type of guys making this money and it was only a short 5-6 years ago

it's insane how much players make PERIOD. Looking at it from a baseball salary perspective however, the Wright deal is fair.

Wright's deal is still less than 70% than what Ryan Howard's annual value is.

Amazing how a bad economy hasn't impacted MLB player salaries.
