I've got two guys in Mantle who will both be arb-2 next season. Exact amount of ML service time, since they were called up together. One's a 75 OVR, the other's a 78 OVR.
My guess is that the LT demands of the 75 OVR will be greater than the demands of the 78 OVR. We'll find out in a week or so.
Here are the two guys:
Maicer Rosario - 75 OVR
John Weston - 78 OVR
Well, I stand corrected. Kind of.
Rosario (the 75 guy) has an arb-2 demand of $4.5m, and long term demands of 5 x $5.8m (total of $29m).
Weston (the 78 guy) has an arb-2 demand of $378k, and long term demands of 4 x$6.5m (total of $26m).
So the arb demands are performance based (which we already knew), but the long-term demands do seem to be tied more to OVR.
The higher OVR guy is asking for more per season ($6.5m vs $5.8m), but for one less year for a slightly smaller total contract value. I suspect that may be because he's 2 years older than the other guy.
