It appears to have worked.
Here's a little info:

The real question is would he be willing to forego 2 years of FA and less total money for the security of a long term deal now? Preferably one that is front loaded.

Conversely, do the Reds believe this season was the real Scooter or just a fluke? Will they offer him a deal, arbitration or look to Trade him?
