While it's a bit exhausting explaining the obvious, the minimization of risk IS THE BARGAIN! It SHOULD go without saying that I hope he EARNS all of the 13 Mil.
If the HIP, the big concern, becomes a problem, the risk has been factored in. Even if we ended up paying the guy the full 13 mil, due to chalking the injury up to some other issue, we are not obligated to keep him around.
Is this really that hard to understand. If the WORST happens, we have already freed up $8 mil in 2013, (13 - 5 paid = 8 mil for the really slow). PLUS another 26 Million for 2014 & 2015 under the ORIGINAL DEAL. YIKES!
This is nuts having to explain the obvious! :0
if you are saying it's a bargain compared to the 3 yr deal
you could of saved some energy and said that B4
Next time I'll paint a dot to dot picture :)
ok... exhausted was a bit of hyperbole. I'm home sick. Everything is exhausting me.
