It's pretty unrealistic to expect any team to have zero bad contracts.
Of those four I think the biggest mistake is Poti. His injury history was well known before GMGM signed him to that extension. What was he thinking? I realize it was before the Hannan trade, but still, the guy's groin is as fragile as a Pinto. The good news is he can be put on LTIR.
I don't care one bit about the King and Sloan contracts. Those are guys you can send to Hershey at any time.
Schultz is Schultz. Probably overpaid, but not by so much that I'm going to get worked up about it.
