2 years $35mm
That's a lot of money for that guy.
Maybe this will be enough for people to realize the Reds won't be able to re-sign Homer.
2 years was an exceptional compromise.
Interesting move for both. Giants limit risk on the years, but give him a higher AAV than his recent performance merits.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
Huge overpay if you ask me. Not been very good the last few years!
Wow! Huge overpay for what he has been the last couple years...
No - I am not from State Farm!
Is he still a starter or are they making him a reliever/closer?
Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
Cincinnati Bengals - None
Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
Bodes well for Arroyo.
