Okay, now it's getting Ridiculous

...the Angels have reached agreement with center fielder Gary Matthews Jr. on a five-year, $50 million contract...

Per Fox Sports, that is just an eye-popping amount of money and contract years for a player who's really only had one above average season. Does anyone recall that Gary Matthews Jr. was a utility outfielder for five years - and he wasn't really that impressive in that role. This has reached the point of madness. Are the Braves in danger of being priced out of the free agent market?

Remember, back in 2004, the Braves didn't even want him.
