Or would it be 2/$15M with an $8M option for a 3rd year with a $2M buyout if declined. So, in essence, that contract would be 2 years, $17 Million guaranteed.
Right, I'm guessing it's $6MM/$7MM, with an option for $8MM and a $2MM buyout. $15MM guaranteed. Good shot at getting value out of this deal.
Now get Fowler and Hannahan, maybe a lefty reliever, and that would be a perfect off-season for WJ.
