Agreed.Legally, he can take off any time he wants to without owing the Twins a dime...
A decent person who was paid $4.5 M to stay for up to 11 years IMHO would not do that, though.
That's my point.
Maybe, then, the only decent player ever in the game of baseball was Lyman Bostock. I know I wouldn't be decent, especially since the Twins (and all of MLB) under pay all salaries of all minor league players. Hey, I never liked the pick, especially in the first round, but Stewart gave up the opportunity to be a Division 1 quarterback, on scholarship, get a university education and gave his unreplaceable college age years, to the Twins, and the agreed upon unrefundable carrot was the bonus. There is no indecency in the whole arrangement, in my mind. And the agreement is not for 11 years, when the Twins could unilaterally end the arrangement at anytime, even if Stewart wanted to stay for 11 years.
