incentive based contracts ?
maybe a stupid question but i'm in the dark on this ?
okay let's say you have 4 levels:
level A ......pujols,ortiz,santana types ( stars)
level B ......harang , arroyo types ( almost to level A )
level C ...... EE, cano, fielder ( emerging )
level D ......castro,clayton etc (bench)
i am not talking about your level A and B type players but C and D.
instead of signing a "jason larue " type to say a 4-5 million , why not a 2.75 with reasonable incentives to get to your main figure?
many times you hear it discussed regarding injury projects like gagne or wood but looks like it would be good in other contracts as well.
i understand now it would probably be hard to change but why couldnt this have been done years ago...
of course maybe there is more now than what i think there is .
