[QUOTE=DSpivack;3041244]While I think 4 years, $80 million for Navarro is an exaggeration, to say that the baseball market has outpaced inflation since 1997 would be quite the understatement.[/QUOTE
I would think given Navarro's age and previous couple seasons, the contract he received from the Sox, had it happened in 2010, would have neen very similar to the amount they are paying Dunn. I think , at least for this particular argument, the contracts are non factors. Pretty much a wash.
