Most of those deals you only get one year maybe two past the years the team controls their movements.

If Taveras is as advertised, in 6 years he will want a Pujols sized contract. and the Cardinals will not be in any better financial situation to give him $250-$300 million.

If he came home with 2 D's and an F, that's 3 fingers (and this was a big dude). Does that sound hideous and disgusting? Absolutely. Did the kid ever get anything worse than a C after this rule was implemented? Not a chance.

I'm not saying it's morally right or wrong, but does it make the child because of it? Think about that for a second.
