Guillen's Contract

New, comments

$5m for 2007, with $3m in incentives and a $9m 2008 option.

That's pricier than I thought it'd be. We won't have to worry about the option unless Guillen totally flips out (in a good way), but incentives are generally based on playing time instead of performance, so there's probably a decent chance that he ends up costing $6m+ against next year's payroll if Hargrove uses him as a semi-regular.

Provided he's used properly, I still like the deal, but unless Ben Broussard or someone else moderately expensive goes away, it inhibits our ability to frontload a Jason Schmidt contract, which is what I'm rooting for at this point. We'll see. Anyway, yay, Guillen. Please just don't kill anyone while you're here.
