This seems like an excellent way to 1) get the Player's Union on your ass and 2) not ever sign a marquee free agent again.That would make a lot more sense considering his career high in ABs is 577.
Regardless, the Twins hold all the power because they can just bench him when they're out of the playoffs if they don't want his stuff to vest. & even if he's great in 10 years, he's going to be making like veteran minimum. He couldn't get a 6/$200m without these negative add-ons?
I quietly posted upthread, but I do wonder what this means for Royce Lewis' future. He looked ready to play at the MLB level last season before he got Swiharted. He's only played like 4 games off of SS his whole minor league career, and obviously Correa isn't going to move off the position. Does this make him tradeable for them, or is he too damaged with multiple major knee injuries to make him worth moving?
