5. Because of the rules in the Collective Bargaining Agreement, the extension counts as a new contract that begins next year. Gardner’s current average annual value — in terms of calculating the luxury tax — does not change based on the extension. Gardner is making $5.6 million this season, and Cashman said that’s what the Yankees will be charged in terms of luxury tax calculations for this season. It’s not until next year that Gardner’s AAV will increase.
what am I missing here
why do so many suggest
the sox waited to announce the beckect extension ( not long enough)
and now some R doing the same thing about the lester & ortiz extensions
zac, the only thing I can figure is that the rules on Gardner's extension are different because his $5.6 million was an arbitration award.
It was well documented that the Sox waited on the Beckett and A-Gon extensions because by doing that the extensions weren't folded into the current year AAV calcs.
could B bob that's as good as any explanation I've heard
maybe the rules changed or
Bcash is wrong it's something that he isn't used to caring about
extensions to players still under contract is very rare in yankeeland
what's up with those sam horn wannabees
that page was dead 4 days
that thread was dead 4 months
he said I was to assume him ignoring my PM meant no
I assumed he wasn't around and didn't C it
maybe they just didn't like being schooled by a MFY
at least we all agree here that in the world of MLB
2000 was the start of this century ;-)
