The deal bought out only one year of free agency, so he's not really comparable to McCann's deal, though. It's still a pretty solid deal for the Reds
He was on pace for something like 18 given 450 ABs in 2013.
Being unable to generate power through the hips may have also had something
Yeah particularly because even on steroids, he hasn't hit more than 18 since 2010.
Mesoraco gets 4 yr $28mil extension with the Reds. 26 yr old catcher making $40mil less than soon to be 31 yr old McCann the next 4 years. Great deal
sports that are more entertainment than 'exhibition of human ability' care about PEDs less.
