    That saves almost $1M from his asking price in Arb. Wish he never accepted Arb, but that is less than I thought he would sign for.

    100k bonuses for games finished and appearances (he doesn't have the numbers). That and the standard all-star/postseason awards bonuses.

    He has now changed the numbers a bit:

    Reds reach deal with Weathers
    1-year, plus a team option for 2010
    2009 is 3.5 million
    Plus: $100,000 for 50gf; $150,000 for 55gf; $200,000 for 60gf; $250,000 for 65gf.
    Plus: $25,000 for All Star; $50,000 for LCS/MVP; $100,000 for WS/MVP; $100,000 for Rolaids ($75,000-2nd; $50,000-3rd).
    2010 is a club option for 3.7 million or a 400,000 buyout

    In other words, it is pretty much fixed at 3.5 million for 2009.

    Actually, $3.9 MM since you've got the 2010 buyout on the option...if they need Weathers next year, then there better have been a major disaster at AAA...

    Should have moved him before the trade deadline last year, for anything. Weathers is terrible.

    Re: Weathers contract

    I see this signing being the result of playing a gamble for an extra draft prick. Weathers gave all intentions he would not take arbitration and, test the FA market. I don't have the quote but the gist was he would no longer give the Reds a hometown discount. Unfortunately for us we got stuck when he accepted.
    "Last week I helped my friend stay put. It's a lot easier'n helpin' 'em move. I just went over to his house and made sure that he did not start to load **** into a truck."
