    That's EXACTLY what I'm getting at... For those "good" players (I've used that specific term in every post I've written about this), the "team-control" always get's taken care of before those 6 years are up, so it's essentially a non-issue.
    Scouting Report: Tools - Power: 30, Hitting: 50, Arm: 60, Defense: 40, Speed: 40. "Line drive swing and shows good contact and on-base abilities. Double's power at his peak. Strong arm from 2B or the OF, stiff hands. Not a fast runner, but above average instincts on the bases. Skinny body doesn't look the part, but can sneak up on you. ACL surgery sapped much of his athleticism." (Probably)
    Spring Training Regular since 2011.

    You were kind enough not to mention that on #1000 I typed "Hicks" when the subject line was for "Gibson". Guess that was one of the 153 (as if that number were really that low).

    If anybody achieves a percentage like that I would cease posting to avoid being embarrassed by comparison. (Actually, some do, yet I post anyway.)

    Yes, but having an extra year of control in your pocket is never a bad thing. Trade-wise or contract-wise it will get you increased value. Throwing out the Super-2 status of Butera has nothing to do with anything, as he's a non-asset, and I'd assume we're talking about players of value.
