@LookoutLanding Kuo's deal : 500K. Becomes 1M if he makes 25 man. With 2.25M additional incentives. (From Taiwanese News Outlet)— David Tiao (@davidtiao) February 6, 2012
There's an additional $2.25 million available in incentives. The bigger point here though is that Kuo could just up and leave the country forever and the Mariners would have no choice but to give him half a million dollars. If Kuo did that he would still be more valuable to the Mariners in 2012 than Chone Figgins was in 2011.
