Guillen details emerge
$5m base, ~$3m more possible in incentives. $9m option for 2008. He expects to play right field.
I’m not too distressed over the money, since there are a lot of ways they could have spent a lot more over a longer period of time. And, I’m about 50% annoyed that this likely means Snelling heads to Tacoma/the bench despite being generally awesome and 50% hopeful this means they’re thinking Guillen plays right the bulk of the time, Snelling plays left, and Ibanez moves to DH… or something happens along those lines. I’m willing to give this some time.
As now quoted many places:
“It’s to play in right field,” he said. “All of the discussions we had were about me being in right field.”
