You know how sometimes a post on the Internet doesn't actually need any body content after the headline? This is one of those times. "Joe Saunders Re-Signs For $6 Million." What else needs to be said? "Joe Saunders Re-Signs For $6 Million. The Arizona Diamondbacks have re-signed Joe Saunders. They will pay him $6 million." I don't know why you're reading this. You already got all of the information you are going to get! Writing this is probably a waste of my time. Reading this is definitely a waste of your time.
Here's Jon Heyman. $6 million. As we've established. Saunders made $5.5 million a year ago. The Diamondbacks non-tendered him because they didn't want to give him a raise to $8-9 million territory. In the end, they didn't have to. As a matter of fact, they barely gave him a raise at all. Remember when Ken Rosenthal said not long ago that a three-year contract was possible? haha
Critical to understand: "Joe Saunders Re-Signs For $6 Million" is not the same as "Joe Saunders Resigns For $6 Million." In the first one, Joe Saunders is getting paid to pitch. In the second one, Joe Saunders is getting paid to not pitch. That is not the case, yet.
