Glavine's option for next year

Postby Rirruto » Thu May 05, 2005 5:53 pm

I understand that he gets another year on his contract if he reaches a certain amount of innings pitched. I've heard numbers of 150-160 all the way to 200. Does anyone what it is definitely? I dont think I want to endure another seaseon of this guy.

The option clause in Glavine’s contract states he needs to pitch either 200 innings in 2005, or a total of 600 innings in all three seasons combined.

OK, the exact wording:

the deal includes a Mutual Vesting Option for 2006 worth 6.5M or a 3M buyout- + 2006 option can vest at 10.5M if he has 600IP between 2003 and 2005 and with at least 200IP in 2005- + if he pitches between 580 and 600 innings between 2003 and 2005, with at least 200+IP in 2005 then the his contract for 2006 will vest at 9M with the oppurtunity to earn 1.5M in bonuses- + if he pitches between 560 and 600 innings between 2003 and 2005, with at least 200IP in 2005, then his 2006 salary would vest at 8M with the oppurtunity to earn 2.5M in bonuses- + if none of the above veting options are achieved the two sides can exercise the Mutual Option worth 6.5M by Nov. 1st, 2005- + if he exercises the Mutual Option, then the team must make its decision by Nov. 10th, 2005- + if the Mutual Option is exercised by both sides then he has the oppurtunity to earn 4M in bonuses in 2006- + BONUSES he has received: 50K bonus for 2004 All-Star selection- + he has a complete NO-TRADE clause

Wow. Thanks for posting that. Great find. The 200 IP for 2005 is a little more important than I had originally thought. The way he is pitching there is a chance he might not make it. :-)

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

What if they just like random skipped some of his starts and put in Heilman or someone? Tell him they wanted to give him a 'day of rest' or something

On the left hand side with all the stats, the last category is the "Tom Glavine 2006 Option Countdown". Yikes, he only needs 133 2/3 innings left.
