  • Bauer's contract has a bonus of $3.4M, with a guaranteed value of $4.45M, and a maximum possible value of $7M. The "slot" amount recommended by Major League Baseball for the #3 pick is $3M, so Bauer received $400K above slot, or 13% above.
    It appears that Bauer has signed a split contract, so that his salary for Years 2-4 will depend on whether he plays in the Minors or the Majors. So the total guaranteed value is $4.45M if he never makes the Majors, and can be as high as $7M if he makes the Majors as soon as 2012. A guess at the breakdown is something like this:

    Signing Bonus: $3.4M
    2011: $0.15M
    2012: $0.20M, $0.50 (Majors)
    2013: $0.30M, $1.20 (Majors)
    2014: $0.40M, $1.75 (Majors)

      Thats an understatement haha.

      • There's been talks about the Royals acquiring BJ Upton... What a terrible move. The guy is just a negative play compiler who's living off a reputation he received from being a prospect...

        For a team that has a MLB-ready CF...just doesn't make sense to give up anything other than chumps for Upton. The only thing I can think of is trading almost nothing for him, then pulling a first round pick when he goes to whoever in free agency...

        • It pisses me off to no end that the Royals refuse to call up Lorenzo Cain.

            • BJ Upton would be a nice fit the Giants as well and likely will be cheaper than Beltran. We just need some sort of production at the plate. Even with his current stats he would be our HR leader and probably close to the RBI leader.

              • Know what would be great? If the Braves would win a game again. That'd be fantastic.

                These losses better not scare us into trading a high level prospect(s) for a Beltran rental. It's just not worth it, imo.

                  Well, they'll call him up and bench Melky until he has no trade value a la Wilson Betemit...

                    Amazingly, Davies pitched well and the Sox had plenty of chances to win the game in extras. It was pretty frustrating, but is really not a big deal. Can't win all of the games against garbage teams.

                      DO IT! You know you want to...

                      Also, please keep losing games. :D

                          • I wish Beltran would ******* get traded already. This is getting annoying.

                              Tell me about it. I'm sick of it. The constant back and forth between all the different writers is asinine.

                              • I love how ESPN was hyping up a King Felix trade as one of their big headliners. Then they get Olney on and he says there is a 0% chance of a trade happening.

                                Thanks BoneKrusher^
