Well, we still own his rights via rfa this year, and signing a contract, his first year under that one as well... Its not so much that scenario, at it is that both sides can attain a full market value on the contract. We may have high taxes, however we have been fair in our negotiations imo.

Carey will get his contract, but it will be based on a summary, not a work in progress midseason. Having his rfa rights affords us the luxury of that.
