Cant wait for more details, hopefully its a smart one.
I'll say 3 years around 20 million.
While I wouldn't cry if Votto were to get into a car wreck or whatever, an injury bad enough to force him into retirement is really the only possible saving grace for this team. They NEED to get out of that contract.
Without seeing the details...this is an excellent move! It keeps a star player happy (Philips loves Cincinnati), and it gives the Reds one of the best young players in the game.
Great deal. It's good to see that this organization has it's priorities straight. He deserves this deal, no matter what the salary.
-LTlabnerIf you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.
Absolutely Awesome!!! i love it!
this team is finally heading in the right direction, and with not living through the big red machine era, i gotta say, i'm lovin it!!!
I've been waiting for this for the whole off-season. It finally came.
It is surprising Phillips got a LTC before Dunn.
I hope this is true....I have a hard time believing Hal's sources since his "Beatty New Reds GM" news break
Getting Brandon long term could be the smartest thing this team has done in a while. It's great that Brandon wants to be in Cincy for the long haul.
Let's hope that this all pans out.
I have a feeling this will buy out 1 FA year at most. I think it's going to a a slightly overpriced deal based on the market of newly signed multi year contracts by arb eligible players.
