That's about $35,000 per strikeout.
Was not able to get in touch with Adam tonight, but I did speak with his agent, Greg Genske, a little earlier. He provided one detail in particular that you'll probably find interesting: The 2008 club option is voided if Dunn gets traded. "Adam was willing to commit one of those free-agent years to the Reds, and not to any other team," said Genske.In addition, Genske said that $13 million option actually could grow to $16 million with incentives. He was at dinner and didn't have the specifics on hand, but said they were award-based. That usually means bonuses for winning an MVP and/or making the All-Star Game. From what Genske said, it sounds like Krivsky made getting a deal done before arbitration a top priority. "Wayne reached out as soon as he accepted the job to become general manager," said Genske. "We realized we had a lot of work to do in a short period of time if we were going to reach an agreement and avoid the arbitration hearing, which always is the goal.
