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.

People like Hendrix, Lennon, Cobain were executed by the government (Illuminati) because they were the real movers and shakers, they were the ones the people responded to...
