Whenever I stumble upon a website that I think is valuable for any current or aspiring Sports Agent, I post it on this blog.
Recently, I ran across Cot’s Baseball Contracts, a site dedicated to disclosing the fine details of contracts for every team in Major League Baseball. There is also some contract information about select minor league players, manager, and GM of each team. On the top of each team page, the site displays what the owner(s) bought the team for and what Forbes magazine values the team at currently.
In addition, Cot’s Baseball Contracts also discloses information about some international players’ contracts and some notable retired players’ contracts.
This website is extremely valuable for an agent when at the negotiation table. Comparing players is a very useful tool when hammering out the fine details of a contract. Now that you have this information at your fingertips, you should be able to value your clients more precisely.
