McCarthy...

Sorry guys this probably doesn't merit its own fanpost but I really want to know the CORRECT answer to this question about Brandon McCarthy... If he is activated and then immediately optioned to AAA for the rest of the year does that guarantee that the team will control him for an additional 3 years after this season allowing him not to hit free agency until after the 2011 season? I'd appreciate it if someone who knows the intricacies of how that works sheds light on the issue. If this is true, I don't see why we would not take this path, considering he has not performed well in the rehab assignments coupled with the fact that we don't need a #5 starter for a while. By the way, does anyone see Evan Grants prediction at getting sheets at 4 years, 64 million at all possible. I highly doubt you could sign him for that price. With this market a guy with his potential (even with the injury history), I bet it costs the winning bidder upwards of 5 years, 75-80 million. Thoughts?
