    Is this the off season prior to 2008?

    When it comes to Edwin it seems like we Reds fans are always hoping he puts it together. His footwork is there but he can't make the consistent throws. He had some very good months. He is ready to post an OPS+ of ... The key with Edwin is whether the hope becomes the reality.

    The two year deal isn't bad and I wouldn't be surprised if the Reds signed him long term during this season.

    He's never going to be anything but respectable on defense, more than likely pretty poor.

    Still, pretty good deal for his bat.

    Encarnacion should have a clause placed in his contract that stipulates he gets his original uniform number back ... the number that was swiped from him last year.

    As it stands, if it's 2 for 5 then that'll work.

    If the Reds offered 2.55 this year, there is no way EE accepted $5 for 2 years....that doesnt make any "cents"

    EE's ego is delicate enough without being subjected to the trashing that occurs during an arb hearing.

    This takes some pressure off EE, hopefully will allow him to relax and just play ball, and also seems to be a fair deal, at least, for the Reds.

    This team really needs for Eddie to step up and play well at 3B. IMO, he'd make a great #4 hitter b/w Bruce and Votto.

    Sure it does. To get a higher guarantee (5 mill) he takes less per year. Now he doesn't have to worry about injuries or poor performance.

    Clubs should do this every time: Give me an incentive to not go Year to Year.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    Hmmm...


    10:24am: Troy Renck of the Denver Post has details:

    Encarnacion will receive $2MM this season and $4.75MM in 2010 with an $850K signing bonus payable between March 29 and November 2009. Also will get $25K for 600 plate appearances.

    That's still a solid deal for both sides, IMO.

    I'll do 2 years for 7 million any day of the week for production like Edwin...

    Re: Reds, Encarnacion Work Out Deal

    Things I'm told
    The Reds avoided arbitration and reached agreement on a two year deal with Edwin Encarnacion this morning.
    Edwin made $450,000 in 2008. He had requested 3.7 mill in arbitration. The Reds had offered 2.55 mill.
    Total deal: $7,600,506
    2009: $2,000,000
    2010: $4,750,000
    Signing bonus - $850,000, payable between March 2009 and November 2009.
    Plus: $25,000 for 600 plate appearances
    Plus: $25,000 for All Star; $50,000 for LCS/MVP;
    $100,000 for WS/MVP; $50,000 for Gold Glove; $50,000 for Silver Slugger.
    Edwin will donate 1% of base salaries and signing bonus to Reds Community Fund.

    I'm pulling for that incentive.

    which team will pay it, though?

    If the 850K is in addition to the rest of it, the Reds shouldn't have gone for this deal.
