    So are you not including the $250k due to Embree and the $500k due to Torrealba in these figures?

    Those figures were paid last year when the contract options were declined.

    When a person such as Francis has extended injury (non-performance) what are possible contact options? Outright payout, negotiated payout, other? Also, what may be player obligations (again the Francis case) to the organization outside the playing field? Public appearances, …..? Thanks.
