Aguilar and Marlins 250k apart in Miami Marlins Posted January 11, 2020 What kind of bad things would happen ? It pisses off the player - who you haven't had for very long - and sets a precedent to other players you're silly. I am all for negotiating hard and firm, but this amount is stupid. They did great with Villar and Urena (I would have guessed $1.5-2 million more), and maybe gave Conley $100-150k too much. They are well ahead on all of them. Just give the dude $2.45 and call it a day.
