It's official... The Diamondbacks are CLOSE to locking up Snyder for at least three more years. The deal is expected to be around $14 million but it could exceed $20 million with the fourth year option.
Personally I think this is a great deal. We get maybe the league best defensive catcher at 5 mill per. I think he also lowers our team ERA quite a bit, if that is even possible. Sure his offensive production is the best but he should quite a lot of power splitting time and has potential for 25 homers playing all the time.
This could mean the end to Miguel Montero though, who we've been shopping anyways. I love Miggy but I say we dump him if the price is right (i.e. one of Boston's many great young arms.) Maybe, if were lucky, we can throw that blonde-headed stepchild in left field in.... ;)
