I've been thinking about this signing, and I wonder if the O's shouldn't have offered 2 yrs/$2M. if he bounces back, and it's reasonable to think he will, given his age and the impact Rick Peterson has on rehab pitchers. I have no doubt he would have taken the extra $500K and 2nd year. and if he's a bust, it still only cost $2M. at the very least, I would have added an option for a 2nd year.
