i'm happy to see that both sides appear to have reached a deal for the upcoming season. $14.575 million was right in the middle between the two sides and it would appear that everyone is happy. according to Papi's agent, Fernando Cuza:
both sides are very happy with the deal and we'll leave it at that. This is a process and once we got together and talked it out it made sense to get a deal done and move on.the pieces are falling into place, and, while i don't think anyone knows what the big picture is going to look like, i for one am starting to accept it for what it is and get jazzed for the season.
