Mark Sheldon just posted details of the recent contracts signed by the Reds. In Ryan Madson’s contract you’ll find a performance bonus of $100,000 if he becomes the WORLD SERIES MVP.
One year, $8.252 million, $11 million mutual option for 2013. ($2.5 million buyout) $6 million in 2012, with $2 million deferred without interest.
Performance bonuses: $25,000 for All Star game; $50,000 for LCS MVP; $100,000 for World Series MVP; $100,000 for Rolaids relief winner ($75,000-2nd; $50,000-3rd)
How great is that.
A player on the Reds who reasonably contemplates being the MVP of the World Series.
Is it April 5 yet?
