3 year/50M

5M signing bonus, 11M in 2020, 16M in 2021, 18M in 2021, $4 million differed

why are they weighing the cost toward the end when they will have LESS financial flexibility?

Don't love the guaranteed 3rd year, but ok.

Damn. Would have prefered going year to year, 2 year with an option tops. As long as he knows he's mostly DHing after next year.

What does this mean for Vaughn?

Vaughn will take over 1B when he’s ready. Abreu will slide over to DH

I was going to ask this, but then I just figured Vaughn will still be the future 1B, with Abreu moving to DH.  Or we could end up trading Vaughn.

Also does anyone think it's a possibility Vaughn is dangled to try and plug RF up?

Abreu should DH, wouldn’t affect Vaughn playing 1B. Collins is now the 1 you have to wonder if it’s possible to get AB’s. He’ll likely be a trade chip

Not really, they just don't bring back McCann next year.  But that would mean Collins shows he can be a backup C.

Until Abreu isn't batting 3rd and playing 1B i'll believe it, Ricky seems content letting Jose keep those spots as long as he likes.

I don't think Collins would be enough to get you a possible long term RFer, but as a package it's possible.
