Help with mutual option Topic

I'm so confused on how I'm losing this guy:

Hardball Dynasty – Fantasy Baseball Sim Games - Player Profile: Don Stevenson

I traded for him at the start of Season 10 (we're now beginning season 11)

As far as I could tell, he signed a $9.3M contract for 5 years back in season 7, meaning his last year under contract would be Season 11, but he has a Mutual Option.

We roll over, and I see he declined his mutual option and now does not want to resign with me. What did I do wrong? I don't remember seeing him listed as an FA last season for Season 11-- surely if he was I would have tried to resign him.

Did he just opt out of his contract and there was nothing I could do to keep him? Was he listed in the Option report for season 10 and I neglected to do something that would have kept him here?

Yes, he declined the option.   Nothing you could do.

Ok, that's reassuring. Thanks Mike

It sucks, but it sometimes happens.  That's always the risk you assume when you issue or trade for a mutual contract.
