Well, Ok. Close the books on this deal. All that is left is to pray that something miraculous does not happen with the Mets, and we end up watching GMJ win the WS with a walk-off grand slam off of Fuentes and secure the WS MVP. Not that I am gonna lose any sleep over that.
But what is GMJ's legacy as a Halo? Sure, there's some stuff on the field. A few good plays and a few good hits. And a metric ton or two of epic fail. How does that all add up against the albatross that was, and is, his contract? Here is how the $46.5 million that the Halos will end up paying 'Sarge Junior' per line item detail.
