All his contract does is change from salary to bonus money regarding his arbitration status.

    Potentially, IF he reached his ceiling right away, it could cost the Reds an additional 10-15 mil over the life of his current contract, or what comes to an additional 3 million per year. If it goes the full 6 years, we are talking $45 mil over 5 years. He'll be paid 1 mil for this year. And if he does indeed reach said ceiling this year and maintains it, it averages 9 mil per year, but the big money won't take place until, what year 3? 4? Well after Harang, Arroyo and possibly even BP come off the books. Rolen too.

    I am soooo not worried about the contract. IMO it should be a non issue, especially regarding his development.

    The Reds retain his rights for six years (I believe) regardless. I really think there needs to be a sticky just for chapman's contract
    .
    Dear god, yes. Please. It infects damn near every Chapman thread. Everywhere.

    It's in the process of eating the latest Chapman thread on ORG. It makes me sad.

    Maybe if we didn't have so many Chapman threads, we wouldn't have so many Chapman contract discussions?

    Just a thought

    I think that in a year or two, one of these guys - Frazier, Dorn, Valaika, Cumberland, Stubbs - will be ready to replace Dunn. They won't hit as many home runs as Dunn, but they should have similar OPS. - 757690, July 22, 2008

    Alonso will be playing 1B for the REDS and batting 4th one year from today. - Kingspoint, July 9, 2009

    Horse hockey. There are just two threads on Chapman on page one of ORG. This thread isn't even directly about Chapman. And I only see one on Chapman on page one this forum. And yet, the contract zealots must high-jack every Chapman thread or even close to Chapman threads with arcane arguments over what may or may not be an issue. It is tiresome.

    Well unfortunately I think it is just part of the hoopla right now.

    So, I guess it's only in 3 threads. Whew!
