Bobby Bonilla net worth, biography & wiki:

Bobby Bonilla net worth: During Bonilla’s 15 year playing career, he took home over $52 million in wages from seven different teams. His 1992 contract together with the NY Mets made him the highest paid baseball player in the league. The formidable threesome helped the Pirates win two out of three straight NL East titles from 1990-1992. His time in the Mets was quite successful from a personal point of view but not too much as a team. Bonilla subsequently went to Florida Marlins, where he helped the team to win the 1997 World Series. Bonilla also spent one season with Los Angeles Dodgers.By 1999, Bonilla had rejoined the Mets. Sadly the team had not been happy with his performance and Bonilla would frequently get into fervent feuds with manager Bobby Valentine. Bonilla played his last major league match on October 7, 2001 for the St Louis Cardinals. You might be surprised to discover that even though Bonilla has not played professionally since 1999, The NY Mets will be paying him almost $1.2 million per year for the next 25 years, beginning July 2011 and finishing 2035. How is that possible? In 2001 Bonilla was an aging expert with $5.9 million left on his contract who could be readily cut loose to free up a roster spot. Bonilla was stressed that $5.9 million after taxes and fees would not be enough for his family to live off eternally so he went to The Mets Management with a proposal. Bonilla and his representative proposed that instead of paying him $5.9 million in 2001, they instead pay $29.8 million over 28 years beginning in 2011. Why would The Mets consent to cover so a whole lot more than $5.9 million? At that time The Mets’ cash, in the direction of owner Fred Wilpon, was greatly invested with Bernie Madoff and bringing in double digit yields annually. The Mets did the math and calculated that at even an 8% yield, they’d make a $60 million gain on the deferment. Sadly, as all of US understand now, Bernie Madoff’s double digit gains were a giant ponzi scheme which will eventually cost Wilpon $700 million personally. However they’re still on the hook for Bonilla’s deal until 2035. Talk about clever retirement planning!
