    They can still work all year to sign him long-term, but my guess is he's officially trade bait.

    This is just weird to me. If you're not going to sign him long term, at least sign him for two years. Who the hell is going to trade for him if he's UFA after this season? Not going to get much for him. Doesn't make sense to me. Ah well. I guess I'm happy they aren't committing to a player I'm not too into. Later fatso

    Why would Hayes sign for 2 years?

    At that dollar amount, he wouldn't.

    At $6 x 2 he probably does.

    why give him 5.125 to begin with even for one season? Why not squeeze him if you doing a one year deal?

    They did. That's about a million off market value and they avoid arbitration.

    This. Also, inflation.

    Because he's worth it. And because he filed for arbitration where he'd have gotten this anyway. The time for squeezing him is gone. They already did when they bridged him. It's put up or shut up time.

    Do we know what the numbers were going into arbitration from each side? If he was so confident he would get at least 5.125 in arbitration why would he settle?

    The same reason why he would sign for 5? More money? Because he wants to play here? Is confident in his ability to take a "show me" contract?

    Shit, why did he sign at all? If he is aimed at hitting UFA, why not cash in on arbitration, where he might have gotten more money?

    Not great, not terrible. Will be worse if they extend him to a huge extension (without a drastic step forward)
