CANO 10 YEARS, $240 MILLION TO MARINERS
Glad to see the Mets are still making stupid deals.
Had to do something.
Guess you're right, and I think the immediate impact will help. The last 2-3 years won't be fun though.
In this market, 15 Mil per for a guy who can give you great defense, 25-30 HRs at Citi, and is a great clubhouse guy is a pretty good deal. In the grand scheme of things, it's an overpay but not by a whole lot. I saw a good write-up on the current market and an outfielder makes between 5 and 17 Mil per WAR point with the League average for all positions being about 5.5Mil. Taking into account age and decline, I think it's safe to say he can be a 2.5-3 WAR player from here on out, that's on the low end of average in that price per WAR range. I would say it's a pretty average deal.
Grandy's deal is fair in this market, but that just speaks volumes about this market.
the hell.... and we couldn't find a trade partner for him?? this seems really wrong.
Poor Baltimore. Webb is going to be absolutely atrocious in the AL East. Last year was a fluke and the only good number he had was his ERA.
Napoli is staying in Boston
That's actually very reasonable...
I guess LoMo just lost a suitor.
That's a LOT of money, even for a short term deal. I wouldn't want even half that much money tied into the payroll over the next two years. Napoli isn't THAT good of a hitter that he's worth $16 million per year.
I think it's pretty reasonable. It's not a stretch to predict that he'll hold up production for 2 years. It was the 4 or 5 year deal that I was afraid of.
Beltran to the yanks.. 3 years $45 Milliion PER MLB TRADE RUMORS
So what is there to do in the Winter Meetings?
The Yankees are acting like that person who gets revenge from being dumped by sleeping with everyone else.
Qualls to Astros 2 years 6 million with third year option plus incentives
would like to have him back another season but oh well. Glad he was able to turn that Marlins season into a nice deal.
Damn Qualls would've been a nice guy to keep but good for him.
good for qualls. liked that dude. He's a much better signing than Webb.
Still curious why we didn't trade him at the deadline
That's big money for Chad Qualls. Good for him.
