$17.5 million will be paid to Frankie if he finishes 100 games between 2010-2011. He will no doubt reach that next year unless he hit the DL for an extended period of time. With his recent incident this was a perfect way to suspend him for the rest of the year slowing the vesting option from the inevitable. Sherman makes a good point with Castillo,Ollie and Beltran off the books for 2012 the $17.5 million for your closer is ridiculous. But when your GM and Manager are playing for thier jobs "now" This has terrible ramifications for the future.
