I think what I got from that is that we will probably avoid going to arbitration with Ryder. Gainey offered $2 mil and Ryder wants $2.5 mil. Both agree that a one year deal is best because both sides want to see what Ryder can do without his injury.

I hate when players sign a one year deal because they want to get better money the year after...I saw a Ribs interview where he said Gainey offered him a 2 year contract and he asked for a 1 year deal because he wants to negotiated something better next year.

At least both guys will be in contract years. Should mean good numbers from both.[/QUOTE]

Ribs was on a contract year this past season
