Interesting Contract Situations

By Cot;s Baseball Contracts here is our contract situation and some interesting side notes:

Contract ends 2008

  • Jim Hendry
  • Jim Edmonds ( We only paid 290,000 for his services)
  • Ryan Dempster
  • Rich Harden ( Club option for 2009)
  • Kerry Wood
  • Bobby Howry
  • Scott Eyre
  • Jon Lieber
  • Henry Blanco ( Club option for 2009)
  • Chad Gaudin
  • Reed Johnson
  • Daryle Ward
  • Michael Wuertz
  • Chad Fox
  • Neal Cotts

It then goes on to state that Fontenot, Hill, Marshall, Pie, Soto, Theriot, Cedeno, Hart, etc.... all have 1 year contracts, but I believe this is misleading because aren't they under club control for so many years because of MLB years of service????

Interesting tidbits from the contract info:

Soriano and Fukudome have perks in their contract. Soriano gets a suite on road trips and 6 tickets to each home game. Fukudome gets 8 first-class roundtrip air tickets from Japan to Chicago for family each year, personal trainer, masseuse, interpreter, visa expenses, $25,000 annually in moving expenses, vehicle during spring training and regular season
