Reportedly between $21 and $25 million

I don't think it matters now, but for those wondering, the contract only contains a limited no-trade clause of 8 restricted teams he would have to approve.

In other words, unless the Reds are on that list of eight, they theoretically could still acquire him. That obviously seems highly unlikely for a number of reasons.

That's an aggressive contract.

That's an aggressive contract.

"Aggressive" here is a nice euphemism.

Good. Now the JJ Hardy speculation can end for at least this season.

And in related news, Renteria is starting for the Reds tonight.

Ugh. Double ugh.
