not going out on a sour note like Reyna.


Claudio played 6 games in 08. He wanted an extension?

He was too broken down to contribute, but IIRC made it very difficult for the team to cut him and free up the salary cap space we desperately needed.  They eventually worked it out  in time for the summer window.   Maybe I'm misremembering.

You are correct. IIRC, his retirement didn't actually clear cap space -- he got paid off. It just cleared a roster spot.

Players in all leagues expect to get paid in full when cut.
I do not see a problem with that in Reynas case.
The difference here is that BWP supposedly asked for an extension, when he was not scoring when playing, is currently injured and the team is winning without him.

Reyna couldn't play anymore. He retired. He didn't get cut.

I remember the hypothermia game, but don't remember if it was Conway or Watterus that went off from the cold.   Torrential rain.

It was Waterreus who had the hypothermia. I remember thinking to myself at the time the irony in him falling victim to cold water, being that his name in Dutch translates to "Water Giant".
