According to John Fay:
The Reds and Scott Hatteberg on Wednesday agreed to an contract extension for next season that will pay the first baseman $1.5 million.
ThereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a club option for 2008.
This is a great move.
Signing a guy having a career year to a one year extension for $1.5M? Super.
And it means there is no rush on Votto being ready next year. If he is, great, if not…ok, there’s a fallback position.
