Well, we didn't really have to worry about this any more, with Fukudome signed -- this is just FYI.
ESPN.com reported that the option vests if Jenkins makes 925 combined plate appearances over the 2008 and 2009 seasons or 525 plate appearances in 2009. He would then earn $7.5 million in 2010. If that option doesn't trigger, the sides have a mutual option for the third year. The Phillies also agreed to a six-team, limited no-trade provision.
That's a lot of dough for a guy who's hurt as much as Jenkins is and who will be 34 next July.
