15 Worst Contracts in American Sports History

13 of 21

4. Denny Neagle, Colorado Rockies

Contract: Five years, $51 million

Four years after going 20-5 with a 2.97 ERA with the Braves, Neagle’s ship came in. He signed a lucrative deal with the Rockies, and he and Mike Hampton were expected to lead the team to the promised land. His time with the Rockies was, like Hampton’s, a disaster. He went 19-23 with a 5.57 ERA in three seasons. There was some good news for the Rockies, however. After three disastrous seasons, they were able to void the contract. They had thought to include a morals clause, and getting caught in a compromising position with a hooker in 2004 violated the contract. He never pitched again in the Major Leagues. —Johnny Goodtimes (AP Photo/Ed Andrieski)
