Resolution for big contracts
Posted 23 July 2013 - 03:36 PM
Would the MLBPA approve of deals with a base salary with more money, years etc as incentives. Example would be Cano gets 10 mil a year but if he hits20-29 homers he gets an extra mil and 30+ an extra 2 mil or say 100 RBI an extra mil and 120+ an extra 2 mil. I just see alot of players in their contract years play very well to get a nice pay day but once they receive the large contract, their production seems to slip. I just see this idea allowing teams to not pay out the arse and a reason for players to have an incentive to produce at their highest level. Not saying all players don't play at a high level it seems they just don't care as much after a large contract.
Phil Hughes will demand a good amount but he's nothing great. Same with EJax, is he really worth what he's making right now? It will also help teams with possible PED suspensions like Arod and Braun so it saves teams some money

That work if a single team is doing the negotiations but the problem is the open market. Players will likely grab the most guaranteed money so that is what teams are offering.
Yeah, no matter what, it will still benefit players the most. That is just how the market is right now.
