I haven’t written much about the Carlos stuff because I wrote it – comparing Zambrano to Zito – back in December. The world just took two months to catch up to me.
I loved finding out the incentives in Z’s deal today
He would also earn bonuses for finishing among the top five in Cy Young Award voting, being named MVP of the World Series and League Championship Series, making the All-Star game, and winning the Gold Glove and the Silver Slugger award.
Maybe they were just standards, but I prefer to believe Z insisted on that one being in there.
On another note, I don’t know exactly why, but I’m far less excited for the first real day of the season. Single Game Ticket Day’s on Friday. I’m not excited about anything this week, but I think I’m not as hyped about this team as everyone else.
These are the games I’m thinking about going after
04/14 (SAT) CIN
05/29 (TUE) FLA
06/13 (WED) SEA
07/14 (SAT) HOU
The Houston game is an extra expensive game, the rest are regular priced, and I’m skipping the last two months again just in case (and I can always find tickets if I need ’em.) I went to a White Sox game last year, and I’m now scarred for life, so probably not again.
I need to track down my Kane County tickets before Friday and figure out if I got some duplicates.
