The Vlad story is...............

I think the Benitez talks could have some effect on Vlad. I recently read an article which stated that Vlad was looking for a substantial Latin community and a Team with fellow dominicans on it. Currently Luis is the only Dominican on our team. Benitez would be the second. All of a sudden Benitez is looking a little better.

 

As far as fitting Vlad in our budget I think it could be done as follows:

 

JP2.3/LC4.5/VG10/ML6.5/MC0.3/JC3.0/AG3.5/RC0.4 = 30.5

JB2.5/BP3.0/DW0.3/CP3.0/AB2.5 = 11.3

AB2.5/CF1.2 3.7

 

Total 45.5

 

Which leaves 4.5 for bench, #5 starter and minimal bullpen help.

 

Vlads deal 2004 10.0/2005 11.0/2006 12.0/2007 13.0/2008 14.0

5 year $60 million without deferred money.

There is no official word yet on whether this story is true or not. I don't understand why the mods deleted the original thread concerning this, as there are about 100 threads concerning "will the Marlins sign Pudge" or "Castro's career numbers" etc. Why delete an entire thread without a reason? I love this message board, but I do question some of the decisions in the way that it is being managed around here.

That doesn't sound bad, but Montreal made a 5-year $70 Million offer, and this may be asking for too much of a hometown discount.

 

I was thinking along the lines of 6-years $81 Million, that comes to this: '04- 11.0/'05- 12.0/'06- 13.0/'07- 14.0/'08- 15.0/'09- 16.0

 

I don't know if that would cost us too much over the first 2/3 years, but if it did, you could always take maybe $2 Million off the first two years and spread it toward the back two or three years, when we have a stadium.
