Snider would be willing to have Drury shipped to the minors (and his cap hit erased) if Drury doesn't perform.
So what exactly is the downside?
Drury doesn't affect our ability to make moves now, at the deadline, or next year.
He COULD be an asset
He COULD be a total flop
But even if he's a total flop, it doesn't negatively affect the team.
If my team's owner is willing to spend $1 Million on a guy and it won't affect our team's future dealings at all, and there's a 1 in 1,000 chance the guy could help our team, why would you say no?
If it's my money, I probably say no, but it's not, it's Snider's money. And if Snider is willing to put it out there for Drury, it's fine by me. I know Homer wouldn't say no because it's just another player who could help out.
or they COULD just sign somebody who's healthy with that $1M
