“Bobby Bonilla Day” was trending on Twitter on Friday as it does every year on July 1. Bonilla’s agent, Dennis Gilbert, orchestrated a contract payout for the third baseman that will pay him $1.2 million every year from 2011 until 2035. Bonilla was originally owed $5.9 million from the Mets in 2000, but the new deal pays him over $1 million annually, plus an additional 8% interest, according to ESPN.
