For those wanting him cut in spring, I don't remember all the details, but I believe he really does have to be completely, utterly awful for us to get out of paying the full contract. If he's merely mediocre or kinda bad in spring training and we cut him, Hoch would be able to file a grievance with the union to get his full contract paid and probably win.
