    Reds RHP Belisle gets $1.25 million deal, avoids arbitration

    CINCINNATI (AP) Right-hander Matt Belisle agreed to a one-year, $1.25 million contract Thursday, leaving the Cincinnati Reds with one player left in arbitration.
    The 27-year-old Belisle went 8-9 with a 5.32 ERA in 30 starts last season. He is one of several pitchers who will compete for a spot in the rotation behind Aaron Harang and Bronson Arroyo.
    Belisle made $390,000 last season and was eligible for arbitration for the first time. He asked for $1.65 million, and the club offered $1 million. His deal includes a chance to make up to $100,000 in bonuses for innings pitched.
    Belisle pitched a career-high 177 2-3 innings last season. He would get paid an additional $25,000 bonus for reaching 175, 185, 200 and 210 innings.
    Second baseman Brandon Phillips is the only Reds player left in arbitration. Phillips asked for $4.2 million, and the Reds countered with a $2.7 million offer.

    True. But if he doesn't, the Reds are only out $1.25M.

    Probably the best/most economical for the performance he will provide deal that the Reds will make all season.

    Wow. It is now written in stone that our 5.32 ERA starter who allowed 212 hits in 177 innings is a bargain. We are lucky.

    And if you think Belisle will duplicate his 2007 in 2008, then you're sadly mistaken.

    Belisle will put up better numbers than Bailey in 2008.

    We are lucky to get Belisle at 1.25 million.

    I will bet you $100 that Belisle allows fewer than 10.8 H/9 in 2008. I'll even give you 2:1 odds.

    Guys who have the control of Belisle and strike out the amount Belisle strikes out simply don't get hit that hard over the long haul.
    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.

    Belisle's not great, but he is a value without question.
