Robert seems less likely to sign that kind of extension because of his massive signing bonus.
I agree thatís the most likely outcome, but really, what would their excuse be?

With Eloy, they legitimately could say he needed to work on his defense. They may or may not have been sincere, but we can all now see that Eloy still needs significant defensive improvement.

With Robert, his defense is already there. He could play CF at an elite level anywhere. And heís hitting as well as Eloy did.

The only thing they might be able to claim with any degree of credulity is that Robert needs to work on not jamming his thumb when he slides.

But though FRATER laughed openly, he wept secretly; and really he neither laughed nor wept. Nor did he mean what he said.
