Contractual ethics will always be fun to discu s. Whether they be service time (Dave Tra Carson Jersey covers that) or based on incentives. The philosophy of providing playing time incentives is fairly simple. The only method the gamer can generate the money (or added option year, new car, regardle s of the two decided on) would be to play well, stay healthy, or have a manager who hates his owner. It seems like losing on a playing time incentive is impo sible for some time. Either the player earns the money and the additional advantage, or else you simply dont play him. Simple right?

It is, except when the player is 35-years-old, doesnt really fit anymore, and shows indications of reducing. Oh, and also the option is for 18 million. The problem here's that Magglio Ordonez isnt a bad player, per se, but the concept of paying him the coming year when he turns 36 is, well on the 1-10 scale of unattractivene s, the proposition ranks as cat.

So Jim Leyland has 50 games to juggle Ordonez playing time sufficient to avoid the option from P.J. Dawson Jersey vesting. Ordonez has 990 plate appearances since 2008, the clause needs 1,080 during 2009 and 2008 to kick in; Ordonez also offers 231 starts and the clause requires 270. 50 games, 90 plate appearances or 39 begins to avoid.

To avoid using a grievance filed on behalf of Ordonez, the Tigers require an excuse to demonstrate they are only sitting Ordonez because his performance is detrimental to the teams succe s. Thankfully for them, they have an excuse built-in. Ordonez is hitting quite poor against right-handed pitchers. His line .253/.322/.339 this season with two home runs and yes, we must always use multiple year data, but when grievances are anything like free agency compensation rankings, arbitration, or awards, or anything else in baseballDre Kirkpatrick Jersey based on stats, the only thing that matters is batting average, home runs, and runs batted during this season while Ordonez teammates, Clete Thomas and Marcus Thames, are batting .253 (with increased home runs) and .252 (with more home runs). Ergo, both of them are more lucrative and should be playing over Ordonez.

Unle s the American League Central plans to force the Tigers hand by intentionally starting southpaws against them*, the Tigers can make it known they merely desire to give Ordonez plate appearances against lefties. Theoretically ending any hope of 39 starts or 90 plate appearances. Obviously, theres always the i Eric Winston Jersey sue whether the Tigers should worry much more about the playoffs compared to money, but, thats for an additional day.

*The Tigers take part in the Royals nine more times. How amusing would it be to determine the Royals distribute random minor league lefty after random minor league lefty to force the Tigers hands? I am talking about, they've already to on guys from baseball, like Bruce Chen but nonethele s.
