I haven't been posting often lately, but today I stumbled onto a website I thought some of you might be interested in knowing about. It's a treasure trove of information on almost every MLB player and manager contract as well as those for prospects still in the minors. It tells you the individual's complete salary history, what incentive clauses are in each contract, what perks the superstars get (example: Dice-K, who has the use of a Lincoln Town Car at Red Sox expense during the season, plus the right to eight first-class round-trip plane tickets per year between Boston and Japan), their up-to-date MLB service time, who their agents are, etc.

Interested in knowing what Pedro Alvarez must be paid each year he's in the minors? Or how much A-Rod is still owed in deferred compensation by the Texas Rangers? Or what Troy Percival's deal requires the Rays to buy for him? All of that's in there, too.

I've bookmarked the site for future reference. Some of you may want to as well.

Here's the URL:

That's a great site. They had a write-up on ESPN.com a couple of months ago.

Good to hear from you Bob.

Too bad they couldnt put some incentive deal in Adam LaRoche's giving him bonus money if he's hitting over .260 with 10 HR's by June 1st

He would be the poster boy for a contract with monthy incentives.
