Adam Eaton gets lots of money

Bad news for Chris Martin...

The Phillies have signed Adam Eaton, giving him a pretty lucrative deal:

A source told ESPN The Magazine's Amy Nelson that Eaton will make $6.875 million in 2007, $7.635 million in '08, and $8.5 million in '09. He has a $1 million signing bonus and there is a $500,000 buyout of the mutual option for 2010. There are incentives clauses for each year, with $250,000 for 200 innings pitched, and an extra $250,000 if he surpasses 220 each year.

Okay, Phillies...good luck with all that...

At least they don't have to worry too much about having to pay out the $500K in innings pitched bonuses each year...
