"Bay will hit a game winning home run in game 7 of the World series and Oliver Perez will get the Save"

Don't think he can sign for a million isn't he getting paid by the Mets? Usually those players sign for the league minimum which is deducted from what the Mets are paying him.

Depends on deferred $$$ deal Bay & Mets worked out. Might get to keep what other team gives him plus Mets payment. No way to know what that contract stipulates.

Contract modified to arrange for deferred $$$. No way to know what agreement says. Bay guaranteed AT LEAST what Mets owe him. Could be MORE if Bay gets to keep what Mariners pay too.

Whatever original contract had for total $$$ plus whatever Mets gave in modified contract for deferred $$$. Buyout probably included.

found these.

Sherman says that Bay will lose some present day value through the deferral, but now he can sign with a new team for more than the league minimum
The union doesn't allow players to reduce the guaranteed portion of their contracts unless they get something equal or greater in return.

he is a normal free agent. thats what he got for agreeing to the deferral.
