It's not just about his contract simply being longer. Gomez will be out of here (or perhaps stay with a huge, huge paycut and smaller role) in 3 years at the longest. Vinny has another 10 (Yes, TEN!) years on his contract.
Sure, he might retire before, but it won't happen within three years. He's also on the decline and has trouble keeping a pt/gp pace. In a few years from now, his production might drop down to what Gomez is actually now doing.

I guess we'll see how he ends up playing now that he's apparently completely healed, but I have no interest in Vinny.
