Re: Would you take a flyer on Kerry Wood? At how much?
I think you would have to be pretty creative if you wanted to get him (w/o throwing around money)
2 year deal
1st year: $2 million guaranteed
- 60 IP+ : $1 million
- 25+ saves: $500k
- 40+ saves: $500k
- ERA under 3.50: $1 million
- ERA under 3.00: $1 million
- All Star apperance: $500k
- Saves leader: $500k
* If 4 of these 7 incentive deals are made a 2nd year in the contract kicks in with the same incentive stipulations except the base salary is $4 million
So basically if he pans out and turns into a dominating closer, the maximum that we would have to pay would be $7 million (not bad for a lights out closer IMO)
The likely hood of him reaching all of the incentive goals would be pretty low I think... if he had a good season we could be on the hook for about $5 million which is okay by me..
I dunno, I'm bored lol
