You are correct that plans do change but Yamaha said they were not actively pursuing anyone and were intending to resign Spies (cue...upset Dovi). The real point is that even after a disastorous 2012, I believe that Yamaha (like many others, manufacturers and fans alike)still had faith in Spies' ability to do well. Some on here may argue but his 2 prior years were in an upward trajectory (although I thought/wished he should have done a little more in his second year). With that said a 2011 Valencia win would have added to his stock (Go Casey).
The dude is still good and I, for one, hope he does well on the Ducati....
