Should we extend Bernie Carbo and work on making him a long term member of the Red Sox. We are currently 96K under budget. Carbo is making 125K this season.

Please keep in mind that any deay struck would rip up his 1974 contract. So a 3 year deal would be for 74-75-76.

I think it's worth locking him up. We are weak in the outfield and even if we get Rice and Lynn up and they are ready and productive, I am happy to have Carbo as a 4th outfielder/platoon and occasional DH.

Market Value, three years seems like a good deal as long as he stays off the drugs.

I'm in favor of the 4-year, 125K per year option. Since we're including 1974 in the calculation, I want him through 1977 (can't expect his precise historical production, but he's rated well enough to be extremely useful), and that's a very reasonable price.
