Yes is was...even if Rizzo's motivation was simply a salary dump, he got lucky.

Huh?

Escobar 2015: $5 million
Clippard 2015: $8.3 million

I see where you're coming from (I guess) but then

Escobar 2016: $7 million
Clippard 2016: $0

Escobar 2017: $7 million club option ($1 million buyout)
Clippard 2017: $0

So from where I'm sitting, Rizzo shed $3.3 million in 2015, but took on $7 million in 2016 and at least $1 million in 2017. That's no salary dump, the NPV of Yunel's contract obligations are higher than Clippard's.
