#11. Bobby Bonilla Hits the Jackpot
Date: 7/1/2011 - 7/1/2035
Question: Who will the Mets pay more in 2011, Ike Davis and Josh Thole combined or a clubhouse cancer from the last century who hasn't played a major-league game in almost a decade? After getting rid of Bobby Bo once, the Mets inexplicably re-signed the "slugger" in 1999. After—surprise, surprise, surprise—Bonilla didn't do shit for the Mets, the team bought out the remaining $5.9 million owed to Bonilla during the 2000 season. Instead of paying him the rest all at once, the front office deferred the payments, so starting this July, Bonilla will collect $1,193,248.20 every year FOR THE NEXT 25 YEARS. Let that sink in for a minute.
