Joey Votto 5 years, $60 million
Jay Bruce 5 years - $33.5 million
Edinson Volquez- 2 years w/ option for a third $18 million
Johnny Cueto - 3 years $9.5 Million
Mike Leake - 4 years, $25 million (so hard to say after 4 starts)
Homer Bailey - 4 years $16 million
and just for fun, Aroldis Chapman - about what we signed him for, maybe a few more years

Votto gets a little more I think. Maybe 5/75, depending on who is bidding on him.
