Re: Bailey signs 1yr/$5.35MM Deal - Avoids Arbitration
Said it in the other thread, but I think Homer is pretty foolhardy to turn down long term dollars given his injury history and (other than last year) fairly mixed bag of results.
If I were his agent, I'd have told him to jump all over a 4-5 year deal if the finances were even remotely competitive.
A 4 year deal still leaves him hitting free agency at 30, in prime position to sign a 5-6 year deal if he pitches well. And, if his arm explodes or he underperforms, they can't take away the ~$35m he'd likely earn on a 4 year deal ($4 / $7 / $11 / $14 ish)
23 Years and Counting...
