55-Year-Old Bobby Bonilla Will Receive His Annual Payment Of $1,193,248 From The Mets Today

Happy Bobby Bonilla Day!

Like every player on the New York Mets, Bobby Bonilla receives a large paycheck every July for their services on the diamond. Only difference here? Bobby Bonilla doesn’t play for the Mets and hasn’t given them his services in decades.

Every July 1, the Mets pay a 55-year-old retired player of theirs a whopping $1,193,248 due to the more infamously, arguably greatest sports contract ever negotiated.

The deal originated from the Mets owing Bonilla $5.9 million for the 2000 season, but instead of paying the slugger that money, the team negotiated with his agent to pay him later, attaching an 8 percent annual interest rate to deferred money. The first payout of the money came on July 1, 2011, and the Mets have been paying the same amount every July 1 since, and will until the year 2035, meaning that original $5.9 million turned into $29.8 million for Bonilla.

Bonilla retired at the end of the 2001 season.

  10. Boeing will cut production of its 737 MAX by one-fifth and has appointed a special board committee to review the development of its new aircraft. The airline giant said on Friday that it will cut its maximum monthly production by 10 to 42 by mid-April. Boeing plans to produce 57 737 MAXs a month this summer.

  11. It seemed like a reach at the time, particularly with Haskins still on the board and the Giants also holding the No. 17 overall selection. Given how atrocious Manning was last season, it might not be long until Jones is thrown into the fire.

  12. Saban first revealed the hip injury at Alabama’s spring game last week, and said it started bothering him at the beginning of spring practice. The injury lingered throughout the spring, slowly getting worse.

  13. A dog’s face can very easily give away their guilt. It doesn’t help when they are standing directly in front of the mess they just created. But admit it, you stay mad for about 10 seconds and then you have to laugh at the situation standing before you.

  14. I couldn’t be more in agreement. I’d like your opinion, do you see more of the same for the days and months ahead? I am really intrigued by your site and your posts.
