In his pregame presser, Bochy just said he has no idea when Matt Cain will throw again or be ready to pitch in a game. The Cainer is a big question mark. Can someone figure out how much Cain has earned for each of his two wins so far this season?

FYI, Rich Lieberman just wrote me an email saying Cain so far has earned $10 million for each of his two wins.

    Is that how his contract is structured, $10 million per win?

    Major and humongous fatigue has set in. Too many errors, too many concussions, too many Sabean lapses in judgment, no clutch hitting and too many holes to contend the rest of the way.

    Interesting to observe though – Giants tout their 300 plus sellouts in a row, open premium bars – Gotham
    Club ($2500 per) – and provide an extraordinary number of bobble heads. Their other park amenities are unparalleled in the majors.

    Maybe I’m too old school but I find good, solid hitting and pitching trumping ball park shenanigans which are designed just to bring people to the ballpark.

    My wish: Reset priorities from providing an amusement park to winning games. Try to win now by making meaningful trades rather than plugging holes with washed-up players.

    And don’t tell me again that salary issues preclude the Giants from doing so. Their cross-bay rivals, whom The Giants
    continue to block from moving south, are doing just fine by following a winning script – raw sewage and all.

    For his entire major league career, Cain has earned about $740,000 per win.

    Hope you had a lovely vacation. Glad you’re back. I wrote here prior to your vacation that Cain was on pace to earn $12.5 million per win. I based that on $25 million per year, which is $5 million off for 2014 (his contract is backloaded and escalates in the latter years). Is it possible that Cain’s contract will prove worse than Zito’s?
