And for Leake, I think you're overpaying. Especially given how good pitching isn't nearly as hard to find as it used to be. But you're overall plan ain't too shabby
Thanks. Both extensions would start / replace next year's deals. With Leake, I figure, he's likely going to get 11 or 12 million between the next 2 arb deals, then he'd get 10 million per year for his first 2 years of FA. It's a friendly deal, but an affordable one for the Reds, if they can go: 4, 5, 10, 11 or so to keep 2014 and 2015 a bit more affordable to sign a FA player.
