The way this guy is pitching, he will command a nice salary as a free agent. Will he be too expensove for the Marlins to keep? As of right now, he will be the top 2 or 3 free agent pitcher out there. My guess is that the team will not be able to afford him. That will be very sad. What a rotation we have going right now.

We need to start contract negotiations now.

Although I agree that his stock keeps going up as he pitches, I think he won't command an amount that our team wouldn't be able to offer. He still has a lot to do to prove himself as a grade A pitcher, so far he's doing a good job at it, though. He's still not recognized around MLB as a better-than-average pitcher. Second, we'll have some funds available next year, as we won't have to pay for Hampton, am I right?

We need to start contract negotiations now. i agree if we start negotiations now with pavano it will be much easier to sign him.

i disgree about his reputation. Many insiders (Leiter was one who called him a stud) saw his rise last year. More are joining the bandwagon (Kruk is one). His rep went way up after playoffs and series. This year it's more solidified.

 

Glad I bought his card last year :D when it was cheap

 

Fish may have blown it by only giving him a 1 yr deal, but we still have over 3 months to go.

PWNAGE.

 

... And a Nunez card that susprisingly, grouded into a double play. >_>

I remember in the offseason reading that Pavano was likely only to receive $3M in arbitration, but the Marlins were generous and gave him an one-year $3.8M deal. The same with Penny. Hopefully the two will remember that this winter.

yeah I remember thinking at the time that we overpaid, but hopefully that move will pay off in the end.

At the time, you could have argued that we overpaid Pavano but I think it's clear that he's worth every cent. And Penny, who should have been co-MVP with Beckett, has been worth it too. It's gonna be so exciting to see this rotation with everyone healthy.

I think that he will want to reamin on the team and he will take less money to stay. And also, we have to keep Pavano pretty much no matter what. So even if he demands a lot of money we have to give it to him. I don't want to mess up our starting rotation especially with all its potential.

I'm not saying that I didn't think they were worth it at the time, just the fact that they wouldn't have made that much in arbitration, but like I said hopefully that move pays off in the end.

Positives

- Stadium on the horizon

- Hampton pay off the books soon

- Pudge pay off the books soon

- I think Carl likes it here (Loria brought him from the Expos)

 

Cons

- Yankees will need pitching and WILL overpay for a young/proven arm like Carl

- Pitching is King, most team overpay for pitching
