Mason Raymond cant even get a guaranteed job and yet Read is going for 4-5 million?????????
Read is an incredibly versatile player that teams would highly value on the open market. All it takes is one team to value him at 4-5 million a year for that to be his value. Like I said, there are a lot factors that go into his next deal, and it being his only big deal of his career might be the biggest. If he takes a team friendly deal, it's because he really wants to stay here, not because he's already banked millions.
