    Well they say you spend the first third of the season figuring out what you've got, we just figured it out in the first 4 games

    Rosenthal: Mookie and LAD in agreement: 12/$365

    Right, and he's FAR exceeded that $35mil/yr value through his career so far, even with our hand-wringing in this thread about defense or 'only' being a top-10 offensive player. If he continues to exceed $35 mil in value the first half of the contract, then the back half is likely still worth it...

    Rosenthal: Mookie and LAD in agreement: 12/$365

    Well, the best data we have indicates otherwise - and even if you want to take out the 10-WAR MVP season and put him at his usual 6, you'd need to assume $/WAR of $6 million to make him "not worth" the money ... and $/WAR has been above that level since 2011. You can argue about the...

    Remember that the specific comment I replied to questioned whether the CBA could be enforced at all - and my "it would be a huge problem ..." was about necessity of fighting breaches (by either side), i.e. enforcement. Of course the 'answer' is suit for breach (or whatever alternative remedy the...

    Compliance and enforceability are two totally different things - I agree we don't know whether management complied with the terms (we also don't know the terms) but that's not DJBMHR's argument at all, which is why I asked that specific question.

    Why wouldn't it be enforceable? We're talking about a binding contract entered into by sophisticated parties - it would be a huge problem if the owners of a lifestyle website can ignore freely-negotiated contract terms simply because they don't like it, or it doesn't make them enough money...
