Phillies go all-in on Brad Miller’s bamboo magic, giving journeyman’s career new gusto

first_imgThe bamboo seems to be working, but Chase Utley’s bat-awakening display on the floor of the visitors clubhouse at Yankee Stadium in June 2010 remains the champ in efforts to break a team from a slump.— Todd Zolecki (@ToddZolecki) June 26, 2019Utley, though, already possessed a permanent identity. He’d long established himself as a perennial All-Star and Phillies legend, winning the World Series two years before.Miller needs the magic to be long-lasting. He’s fighting to extend his career, and becoming a cult hero on the back of a potted plant is a ticket to job security.After all, you can’t cut the bamboo guy. Brad Miller has long sought a permanent MLB identity.First he was the promising prospect who couldn’t stick in Seattle. Then he was the one-hit wonder in Tampa Bay, blasting 30 long balls in 2016 before injuries and diminished production made his success there short-lived. He made brief, unmemorable appearances in Milwaukee and Cleveland. Now, Miller is trying on a new persona in Philadelphia: the bamboo guy.So far, it’s working. After losing their seventh straight contest this past weekend, the Phillies have gone 4-0 since Miller purchased a potted bamboo plant Monday morning to place in his locker. The run has come against the sliding Mets, of course, but it has nonetheless rejuvenated manager Gabe Kapler’s squad.Miller’s teammates have been quick to identify the bamboo as the cause for their turnaround, and seizing on that momentum, the utilityman on Tuesday bought a larger version of the fast-growing plant to place in the middle of the clubhouse.MORE: Watch ‘ChangeUp,’ a new MLB live whiparound show on DAZNIt’s the great BAMBOO🎋— Rhys Hoskins (@rhyshoskins) June 26, 2019Us: We’re not going to go overboard with this bamboo stuff.Also us:— Philadelphia Phillies (@Phillies) June 26, 2019Miller has been active for the Phillies since June 14, going 4 for 9 in a bench role.He hit his first long ball for Philadelphia in the sixth inning of Tuesday’s 7-5 win. On Wednesday, he scored the tying run in the seventh inning and watched from the bench as Jay Bruce’s walkoff double in the 10th sealed a come-from-behind win. On Thursday, he went 0 for 1 but Jean Segura hit a walk-off three-run home run.Bamboo boys at it— Sporting News MLB (@sn_mlb) June 27, 2019If the bamboo keeps working its wonders, Miller could find himself in good company in franchise lore. The last notable outside-the-box clubhouse scheme came in 2010, when Chase Utley’s spiritual summoning coincided with the team winning seven of nine games.last_img read more

Patrick Mahomes contract details: Here’s how much money Chiefs QB will actually make in ‘half-billion’ dollar deal

first_imgThe contract extension Patrick Mahomes signed with the Chiefs this week is such that it can only be described as massive no matter how it’s viewed.The 24-year-old quarterback’s new deal is the richest contract in NFL history. With an average annual salary of $45 million once the extension kicks in starting with the 2022 season, no player in American team sports will make more money on an annual basis. Patrick Mahomes for Mahomes’ cap hits over the next 12 years, the amount will peak in 2027, when the QB is scheduled to count for $59.95 million against the Chiefs’ salary cap.Below is the breakdown of Mahomes’ cap hit in each year of the contract. The figures include Mahomes’ $10 million signing bonus spread over the next five seasons.YearMahomes cap hit2020$5.347 million2021$24.807 million2022$31.45 million2023$42.45 million2024$39.95 million2025$41.95 million2026$41.95 million2027$59.95 million2028$44.45 million2029$44.95 million2030$50.45 million2031$52.45 millionMahomes’ incentives are simple. Each year starting in 2022, he can earn $1.25 million if the Chiefs reach the Super Bowl and an additional $1.25 million if he is named NFL MVP for a maximum of $2.5 million per year in incentives.Which means in order for Mahomes to the full $502.631 million his 10-year contract extension offers, he needs to lead Kansas City to the Super Bowl as the league MVP in every season for a full decade.Patrick Mahomes guaranteed moneyThough Mahomes’ contract features $141.428 million in guarantees over 12 years, he was guaranteed only $63.082 million at signing.That $63.082 million includes Mahomes’ signing bonus, his base salary for the next three years and his 2021 and 2022 roster bonuses. Which means Mahomes’ contract essentially will be a year-to-year deal starting in 2023.What are guarantee mechanisms?Multiple reports of Mahomes’ contract extension used the phrase “guarantee mechanisms,” which are just fancy words to describe the timeline of when chunks of money in the deal will become fully guaranteed.Courtesy of Spotrac, below is the breakdown of when Mahomes’ guarantees for 2023-2031 are scheduled to kick in:2023 salary, roster bonus and workout bonus fully guarantee on third league day of 20212024 salary, roster bonus and workout bonus fully guarantee on third league day of 20222025 roster bonus and workout bonus fully guarantee on third league day of 20232025 salary and workout bonus fully guarantee on third league day of 20242026 roster bonus fully guarantees on third league day of 20252026 salary and workout bonus, plus 2027 roster bonus, fully guarantee on third league day of 20262027 salary and workout bonus, plus 2028 salary and roster bonus, fully guarantee on third league day of 20272029 salary, workout bonus and roster bonus fully guarantee on third league day of 20282030 salary and roster bonus fully guarantee on third league day of 20292031 roster bonus fully guarantees on third league day of 20302031 base salary fully guarantees on third league day of 2031As the contract sits now, the dead cap charges on Mahomes’ contract end in 2024, but that’s before any of the above guarantees are activated. (Getty Images) And yet, this is still a good deal for the Chiefs, who now have the reigning Super Bowl MVP locked in for the next 12 years. Mahomes will count for only $5.347 million against Kansas City’s salary cap in 2020 as the team attempts to repeat as champions, and the contract is back-loaded in a way that accounts for what’s expected to be a rising salary cap over the next decade.So, in short, the Chiefs will never be overpaying for Mahomes as long as he continues to be the kind of player he has been since he was selected with the 10th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. If anything, he eventually will be underpaid.Below are all the details of Mahomes’ massive contract extension with the Chiefs, pieced together with reporting from Pro Football Talk and Spotrac.MORE: The QBs who are next in line to get paidPatrick Mahomes contract detailsIn total, Mahomes could earn up to $502.631 million over the next 12 years if he hits all of his incentives. The base value of his contract, including the next two seasons before his extension kicks in, is $477.631 million for an average of $39.8 million per year. Starting in 2022, Mahomes will make an average of $45 million per year.Below is the amount of cash Mahomes will earn in each of the next 12 years, because we all know the cold hard cash is what matters. The total cash each year is made up of Mahomes’ base salary, roster bonus and workout bonus, not including signing bonus pay and incentives.YearTotal cashBase salaryRoster bonusWorkout bonus2020$10.825 million$825,000N/AN/A2021$22.807 million$990,000$21.717 million$100,0002022$29.45 million$1.5 million$27.4 million$550,0002023$40.45 million$5.5 million$34.4 million$550,0002024$37.95 million$2.5 million$34.9 million$550,0002025$41.95 million$2.5 million$38.9 million$550,0002026$41.95 million$2.5 million$38.9 million$550,0002027$59.95 million$10 million$49.4 million$550,0002028$44.45 million$13 million$30.9 million$550,0002029$44.95 million$20.5 million$23.9 million$550,0002030$50.45 million$27 million$22.9 million$550,0002031$52.45 million$38 million$13.9 million$550,000At least until the late years of Mahomes’ contract, most of his money will be paid in the form of roster bonuses that will become fully guaranteed a year or two ahead of time. (More on those guarantees below.) (Getty Images) Patrick Mahomes longest contracts in NFL historyIn terms of years, Mahomes’ contract extension with the Chiefs is among the longest in NFL history. The only comparable deal in terms of length among active NFL players is left tackle Tyron Smith’s eight-year contract (2016-2023) with the Cowboys for roughly a quarter of the money. After Smith, 14 active NFL players are on six-year contracts. Even though the Chiefs have Mahomes locked in for the next 12 seasons, the extension is for 10 years and is not unprecedented.PFT cited Donovan McNabb’s 12-year deal with the Eagles in 2002 as the longest in NFL history in terms of years. Other quarterbacks — Brett Favre (Packers in 2001), Drew Bledsoe (Patriots in 2001), Michael Vick (Falcons in 2004), Daunte Culpepper (Vikings in 2003) — have signed 10-year contract extensions before Mahomes. Of course, none of those deals can even sniff the amount of money in Mahomes’ contract with the Chiefs.In 2001 I gave Brett Favre a 10-year deal averaging $11.25M when Cap was $60M (18.75% of Cap).Today Pat Mahomes gets 12-year deal averaging $37.5M (450/12) when Cap is $200M (18.75% of Cap).— Andrew Brandt (@AndrewBrandt) July 6, 2020The Chiefs did not need to complete this extension when Mahomes had two seasons left on his rookie contract, but their doing so in 2020 maximizes the amount of years they can tie themselves to a quarterback who needed just a few seasons to take over the league.Barring something unforeseen, Kansas City is now set at the game’s most important position for more than a decade at a reasonable price.last_img read more

Councillor concerned over high crime rate in Zeelugt

first_imgCouncillor of Constituency Number Four, Zeelugt, Poorandai Sukhu on Tuesday vented her frustration over the village’s alarming crime rate, which she claimed is not being addressed by the Police Division.Sukhu told Guyana Times she is certain a robbery occurs at least every three days in the community.It is due to this fact that the Councillor noted that the matter was brought to the attention of the D Division (West Demerara-Essequibo Islands) Commander, who only reportedly committed to meeting with the Neighbourhood Democratic Council (NDC) members in June, but never showed up.“The crime rate is very very high. Extremely high I would say because is like everyCouncillor of Constituency Number Four, Zeelugt, Poorandai Sukhunight someone house is (being) broken into. Every night…,” she said.Sukhu said on Monday night a villager’s house was broken into and several items were discovered missing. “One week prior to that they went in his shop and clean the entire shop with all the goods and everything and couple days after, they went back there. Earlier in the month they went to a supermarket in the village also,” she stated.The Councillor said despite reports are being made of these incidents to the Police, little or nothing is being done to remedy or even investigate the occurrences.According to her, a number of reports were made by villagers to police stations, which is often to no avail.“I know of (a case) where one resident caught a thief man in his veranda and called the Police and the thief man claimed that he was going there to look for something to eat (because) he is very hungry and after two (or) three days, the Police loose him,” she explained. The woman said the crime rate is so high and has become so scary that many times persons are forced to stay away from family activities and forums because whenever the home is left unattended, the thieves take advantage. It is because of the same reason, she said, that persons are now refraining from wandering on the streets after dark.“This is really frustrating. Persons should not have to live like this in fear. The Police ought to look into our worries,” she added.The Councillor added, “where I am living in my street, this is about seven days ago, they went in (somebody’s home), break the window and those people were in their house sleeping. They carried away bottles of water, them two litre bottles thinking it was kero and they carry away that. Carry away the fan and even the people groceries.”Meanwhile, when contracted, Divisional Commander Rishi Das dismissed the claims made by the Councillor. He said he was never contacted to attend any meeting by the NDC.“Nobody never invite me to meet with the members of Zeelugt (NDC). I did Community meetings in West Demerara Station District. I went to Bonasika, I went to Santa Mission, I went to Canal (and) I went to Par Faite Harmonie… I never promised anybody to go anywhere,” Das said.He even said that based on their records, the crime rates are not as high. On Monday last, a man was nabbed with several items he stole from the Zeelugt Shiva Mandir.A caretaker of the building who visited the temple on Monday at about 06:00h to switch off the lights found the idols stripped and the building ransacked. She raised an alarm, and the incident was reported to the Police.The devotees who suspected the man went to his home with a team of officers and unearthed the missing items in his fowl pen. Taken into custody, he subsequently confessed to the crime at the Leonora Police Station.A public-address system and over $200,000 in decorations and other items were stolen.last_img read more
