Joel Sherman reported this morning that Randy Winn’s 900K in contract incentives are predicated upon hitting certain amounts of at-bats against left handed pitching. Eariler today, Rob Abruzzese explained the reasoning behind the highly unusual contract, and clarified how the Marcus Thames deal figures into the equation:

Assume you’re Brian Cashman for a minute. You’ve filled your 40 man roster by this point with plenty of able candidates to assume various roles.
