Honestly, it sounds like a GREAT deal for the Reds.
Youkillis was "pondering" a one year deal at 12 million, thinking it might not be enough.
With this salary explosion in FA , if we get a good year out of Ludwick in 2013, it's almost like getting the second year for 3-4 million...
Thank you Ludwick for coming back, I'm sure you could've gotten more money elsewhere if you really wanted to. I think it's awesome that the Reds have returned to being a franchise that players want to play for.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
