Mike Napoli 1B / C Red Sox 1 $5.000MM
Angel Pagan CF Giants No 4 $40.000MM

I thought the Swisher, Haren, Dejesus and Jackson deals were fair, too. Looking back, some deals turned out to be great that I didn't expect when they were signed.


I agree on the Chen, McCarthy, Napoli, and Haren. I think you already know how I feel about the Cabrera and Pagan deals.

Did anyone pick 2013 as the year that Alex Rodriguez's contract became toxic?
