Could be MORE if Bay gets to keep what Mariners pay too. >>>>
why wouldnt bay get to keep what he could get from another team?
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.
