    Re: Yasmani Grandal

    I wonder if they could somehow make a promise that he'd be added to the 40 man roster after '11. I'd consider that. Less risk for the Reds but more importantly it would give plenty of time to open up some spots. But now? Noway.

    I thought about that also. I'm guessing MLB wouldnt let that be included into a contract, but I dont see why they couldnt use the honor system if they really wanted to.

    Guys get it put in their contracts all the time that they have to be called up by May 1st or whatever, I don't see why MLB would deny the caveat that the Reds have to add him by a certain date if both parties agreed.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Just talked to my "friend"...

    Deal is done. He is probably going to Arizona for a week then Carolina or Lynchburg.

    Thinks part of the deal is a 40 man spot by the end of next year.
    If you can't be a good example... then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...

    Those guys sign as free agents though not exactly the same thing. I would guess if MLB allowed it to happen it would happen more often, and I cant think of a single time its happened.

    Now that I think about it it is possible that they could say "if not on the 40 man roster by such date he receives X amount of money as a bonus"

    I doubt they could say "x amount or released" but I could see it being a bonus amount of money.

    Technically, GIDP is right. They wouldn't be able to make that kind of covenant. Here's why:

    If you sign a Major League contract, you can sign for multiple years. You could stipulate such a covenant at the end of the Uniform Player Contract... however, since you're giving him a Major League Contract, this is a moot point.

    When you don't sign a Major League contract, however, you're technically only signing a 1-year deal. You're signing a minor league contract that the club can renew from year to year. You can't really specify a covenant for a year that isn't covered by the contract itself.

    So there are probably two things they could do: specify that he be added by a certain date this year (i.e. September 30), which would mean they have to release someone the last day of the regular season (ish), or they could simply make an oral promise to add him in November when the clubs submit their protection lists for next season.

    There is an open 40 man spot already I think, but honestly I'm really surprised they gave him a 40 man spot.

    Hes on the 40 man and only on the 15 day DL. The Reds would just have to option someone.
