That's like going to buy a car, seeing the sticker price of $18,000 and offering the dealership $20,000.
Perfect turn of phrase.
I will say that I think most speculation is assuming the Reds would be able to extend Wright. You are, of course, correct that there is no guarantee of that. But when people are proposing packages like this, I believe that is the assumption for the purposes of speculating.
