View Full Version : Swisher question

Does anyone know how much money swish had on his contract. i know he had like three or four years left on contract. does this trade free up money for a free agent??? If dye, vazquez, paulie, or thome is traded that would free up more money.

All I know is that the Sox releive themselves of a hefty $10 million pay day coming for him in 2011 (9 +1 buyout for 2012).

Another sucky year like this one and Kenny would have been stuck with that crappy contract. Yuck.

I saw it was a 5 years 26 million dollar deal and this is what is left:
$5.3 million in 2009,
$6.75 million in 2010
$9 million in $2011.
a $10.25 million club option for 2012, with a $1 million buyout.

I really like this because it makes keeping Dye and Jenks more likely. Kenny now has about $24 million to play with, and only 2B and CF to fill. He's got lots of options. He could even still trade Javy and actually sign a stud if he wanted, because there's still money to spend.
