After some of the contracts Krivsky gave out that Lettuce Bob was forced to eat, I'm not sure he or his wallet is ready to eat some of Jocketty's contracts.
What does that mean? Lettuce Bob's paying Taveras $4M for 2010, and it'll be to play for the Reds, rather than not playing for the Reds.
Probably a discussion for another thread since this is about Stubbs, but maybe Bob and Walt see those empty seats and get the message that eating Taveras bucks and letting him go would make the fan base a little happer. Take the $4 Million from the Marketing budget and not penalize the player budget for it. Fewer ads on TV and Radio and no more Willy. Its worth it IMO.
