Re: Reds, Encarnacion Work Out Deal
Wow, 2 year deal at 5 million is fantastic. So often when teams makes these deals, they give away a contract that essentially has the player win 2 years of arbitration.
In this one, both sides "gave". If Edwin had gone Year-To-Year he would have gotten more. So by gaining the longer contract, he sacrifices some potential cash.
The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.
