That saves almost $1M from his asking price in Arb. Wish he never accepted Arb, but that is less than I thought he would sign for.

100k bonuses for games finished and appearances (he doesn't have the numbers). That and the standard all-star/postseason awards bonuses.

He has now changed the numbers a bit:

Reds reach deal with Weathers
1-year, plus a team option for 2010
2009 is 3.5 million
Plus: $100,000 for 50gf; $150,000 for 55gf; $200,000 for 60gf; $250,000 for 65gf.
Plus: $25,000 for All Star; $50,000 for LCS/MVP; $100,000 for WS/MVP; $100,000 for Rolaids ($75,000-2nd; $50,000-3rd).
2010 is a club option for 3.7 million or a 400,000 buyout

In other words, it is pretty much fixed at 3.5 million for 2009.

Actually, $3.9 MM since you've got the 2010 buyout on the option...if they need Weathers next year, then there better have been a major disaster at AAA...

Should have moved him before the trade deadline last year, for anything. Weathers is terrible.

I see this signing being the result of playing a gamble for an extra draft prick. Weathers gave all intentions he would not take arbitration and, test the FA market. I don't have the quote but the gist was he would no longer give the Reds a hometown discount. Unfortunately for us we got stuck when he accepted.
