Here's a guy who signed a $24 million contract to play for the Cubs, and in the first year of this contract hit .187 and played no defense. Yesterday he was named the Opening Day starting catcher, despite hitting under .180 this spring (when everyone else is knocking the cover off the ball) and despite Joe Girardi, a seasoned veteran, hitting over .350. And Girardi is much better defensively. Let's face it -- the only reason Hundley is even on the team is because of the contract the Cubs signed last year. And we as fans are subjected to Hundley's embarassing presence because of it. When will the revolution in sports take place in which baseball and basketball players do not get guaranteed contracts? Or when players are paid for performance? I recommend a system in which half of a player's compensation is based on team results. You make the playoffs? You get a $1 million bonus. You win the championship? You win $5 million. You hit under .200? You're fired.
