    I read on twitter that the deal is only worth $7m over the 5 years. (was on phone, so no link)

    Five years, $7 million. Three option years.

    The deal’s total potential value over eight years is $26.75 million, although that would require Perez to reach all possible incentives and performance bonuses. The base value of the deal, if all options are exercised, is $21.75 million.

    Unless he totally craters, it's a nice deal for the Royals. Relatively little downside for them, fair amount of upside if he's any good.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    If Mesoraco were willing to take a similar deal, I would do it in a heartbeat if I am Walt.

    Wrote about that this morning on my site. While I think Mesoraco would garner a higher money deal, would he turn down something like this:

    750,000
    1,000,000
    1,500,000
    3,000,000
    4,500,000
    7,000,000
    9,000,000 (club option, $2M buyout)
    11,000,000 (club option)

    Guaranteed money is $17.75M for 6 years.

    Nice deal from Royals standpoint. The Royals are not going anywhere despite there great group of youngsters - they may at some point get a division title but with their owner I doubt much more. He has a 'poor me' owner complex that I hate and I doubt the Royals ever keep any of their young stars like Hosmer or Mustakis or Gordon past their FA years. They'll be a perpetual star machine for other teams churning out superstars for prospects and always having a great farm system and a major league team on the cusp but without any anchor stars to carry them farther. He (Glass) is much worse than Cast about complaining about the costs of a small market and his inability to do anything - he openly talks about never being able to keep or to sign big stars. I love the Royals young players - they are a lot like the Reds but their ownership is a world different. Reds fans should feel lucky to have an owner who at least tries and and fights the current instead of just giving up and swimming downstream.

    What is the book on this guy? What kind of upside does he have this season? Anyone familiar with him as a prospect?

    Interesting. Thanks for the insight. I've always liked B-Cast but this makes me like him even more.
