$1.25 M contract extension keeps Valentin with Reds
Javier Valentin has decided he would like to end his career as a Red.
The club didn't exactly give him a lifetime contract, but the Reds did extend his deal through 2007 with a club option for 2008. The extension is worth $1.25 million per year.
"I'm happy," the 30-year-old Valentin said. "I can go home and relax and know I have a job for next season. I like this team. It's a good organization. They gave me an opportunity."
