BP will command around $9-10 mil per. Someone will give it to him if the Reds don't.
Amen. Just another case of the non-flexible budget. One of the Reds' best players should be rewarded. Jay Bruce gets what I considered a huge contract given his on again, off again performance, and there are more examples. Like many other Reds, appreciate Brandon. Flexible budget be damned. Put the product on the field and watch the success. Cheap it and take players off the trash bin (Freddy Lewis comes to mind) and you get what you deserve.
