No info on what salary for option years is. I'm sure it's pretty team friendly. With options, takes him through his age 32 season. He doesn't need to be a superstar for this to be a huge win for the Rays.

Moore was removed from Monday's game with left elbow soreness in the middle of a fifth-inning at-bat and will have an MRI exam this morning to determine what is wrong.
Moore said he was hopeful that it might be just a hyperextension, and optimistic based on initial tests that there was no structural damage.
"At this point all the tests and stress stuff that they're doing on me, it's not really making me feel concerned in that regard," he said.
Manager Joe Maddon acknowledged after the 4-2 loss that they wouldn't know for sure until getting the MRI results. But he said head athletic trainer Ron Porterfield, after talking with the Royals doctor who did an initial exam at the stadium, told him he considered the injury less severe than last year's, when Moore was sidelined for more than a month due to soreness.
Moore, 24, said he felt only the soreness — and no pop or sharp pain — while throwing his changeup during the fifth inning, with no prior issues during the game or even since he started throwing in spring training.
After about 7 years of hearing about the genius of Andrew Friedman, you are now seeing the shine start to come off now that the high picks are more scarce. Neither is probably fair – they had an extraordinary hit rate with those high picks and, frankly, they've been just as successful with FA signings like Kotchman, Loney and the assorted bullpen guys they've cycled through over the years.@pgammo: The inordinate strain of losing Cobb, Moore and Hellickson enlightens fact that Rays system is thin. 2010(5 of 1st 79 picks) and 2011(10 of

Sure. The Rays thread is a haven of free expression and not easily taking offense, so call it whatever the fuck you want.TheYaz67 said:In honor of Big Papi can we rename this thread "Little Bitches - Your 2014 TB Rays"?
One of his real estate partnerships is now under contract to buy the last few residential properties in the immediate area, including three 100-year-old shotgun-style homes at the northwest corner of Cumberland Avenue and Nebraska Avenue, and a low-slung apartment building next door with four units.
The homes stick out as the last remaining residential holdouts between the Selmon Expressway and Channelside Drive in what’s now a sea of open-field parking where more than a few political players in town hope Vinik might usher in a baseball stadium.
