    Yah, there has to be player interest, first, good point. I didn’t consider that.

    Having never made a typo ever, I can wonder how much Martinez has to sing to get a quarter of a million dollars.

    I haven’t seen a breakdown of the bonuses anywhere else, so here goes:
    fox midwest

    The 30-year-old first baseman and outfielder would get $100,000 each in 2020 for 250, 300, 350 and 400 plate appearances, and $200,000 apiece for 450, 500 and 550.

    Essentially, if you put his ‘true’ 2019 salary at $575k, he can max out 2020 at $3,675,000 at 550 PA. Seems pretty fair.

    Not too much, as long as he’s better than Ditka, Roseanne, and Cuba Gooding, Jr..

    Also, you know how the g and the t are adjacent on the keyboard? Well, never sign a letter “Best Retards.”
    Worst. Typo. Ever.

    Not a back breaker salary wise to the team but even if Martinez put up a 5 WAR season I doubt he would get $3.6 million in arbitration. This was a very generous deal.
