    With respect to your point, can you quantify how you arrived at the "two times his market rate" figure?

    His AAV is $17.5 million. Qualifying offers are $15.3 million these days. In your view, Homer's contract should have paid him less than $9 million per season?

    Or are you arguing that the guarantee of years was above and beyond... looking at "total contract value" or something like that?

    Yep, this I agree with. It was ill-advised to pay market value on Homer when the Reds did, the way that the Reds did it. I just take issue with the people who claim he was insanely overpaid above and beyond what the market is currently bearing.
