John Ryans Contract Debacle:Edit

The team's new ownership found themselves taking over a team with a decimated roster and a very low financial capacity. The team was deep in debt and saddle with a contract for 16.7 million a year for John Ryans, a former All Star who had lost the ability to play at the major league level. An man who owned the club for only a few months took on the contract of Ryans to meet a "payroll floor." The result of the financial problems combined with the salary kept the team from being able to sign free agents for the first two seasons. At one point, Ryan's contract was 1/3 of the total team payroll as he languished in the minor leagues.
