Re: Per Hal, Phillips and Reds agree on long term deal
SO, 3 years $15M - LOVE that, much better than the 3/20 people have quoted.
4th year at $11M. Maybe a TAD too much, but 4/26 hard to argue with.
5th year option for $12M. Love it. He'll be on the flip side of 30 by then, and we'll have to see if he is still worth the $$, if so, $12M might look like a ridiculous bargain.
I think that in a year or two, one of these guys - Frazier, Dorn, Valaika, Cumberland, Stubbs - will be ready to replace Dunn. They won't hit as many home runs as Dunn, but they should have similar OPS. - 757690, July 22, 2008
Alonso will be playing 1B for the REDS and batting 4th one year from today. - Kingspoint, July 9, 2009
