Leonys Martin of5 years/$15.5M (2011-15)
5 years/$15.5M (2011-15) signed Major League contract with Texas as amateur free agent from Cuba 5/4/11 $5M signing bonus 11:$0.5M, 12:$1.25M, 13:$2.25M, 14:$2.75M, 15:$3.75M
I thought I read somewhere that after Martin's contract expire's he still has abrition years...etc
Anyway, think OLT + MARTIN + MARTIN PEREZ is how they should expand the deal.
We get two guys for our outfield, plus we'd get a young lefty pitcher to join a furture rotation of Wheeler/Harvey/Neise
Certainly we'd have to add in more than just Dickey to get all three guys though.
As Michael Douglas said in the movie WALL STREET, "Greed is Good" ... lol
Seriously, why not reach for that gold. All they can do is say no. And who knows, if you make them the right offer, they might say yes.
When the Rays made the deal with KC, everyone thought it was just an accomplishment enough just to get the Royals to give up Myers, but they expanded the deal and got Ordorizzi too...etc.
Yes, I could be satisfied if we just got Olt and Martin, but I'd at least shoot for more.
