As far as bargain signings go, Naps may turn out to be the steal of the century! I LOVE THIS DEAL!!!! The fact that he went along with it makes me a bit nervous, as it tends to confirm the seriousness of the injury.
Still..... Risk vs. Reward?? GREAT DEAL! Worth the risk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Due for a re-birth with Boston! He's gonna stay healthy. Sox will give him rest, but he still hits 30+ HR,
"I call that a bargain... the best we ever had! ! ! !! ! !"
I don't mean to rain on your parade
but what's up with all this 'steal of the century ' bargain talk
I get the part about being excited about napolis potential
just don't C why a fan would be so excited about a '' bargain''
a lopsided trade sure, I just don't get the excitement over a FA bargain
like you mentioned is it not more of a red flag than anything
skipping all that and staying with the positive
unless U know, I don't , what the incentives R
don't the odds favor
the better the year the less of a the bargain
never understood how both writers and fans
said he took less money to come here
without knowing what the incentives R
If he plays healthy season, he will earn up to $13M. that's his incentives. But that's it. Sox have previlege to either extend him before the season ends or tie him to QO and then negotiate. Ben signed him to a 1 yr/ $13M, without significant absense due to hip injury, instead of 3 yrs/ $39M. That's called bargain. Sox have nothing to lose. Well you guys won't understand this stuff...
I read if he doesn't hit the DL due to any hip related issues, he'll get the $13 mil.
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
