Realmuto traded to Phillies

Recommended Posts

If you were JT Realmuto, would you sign an extension with the Marlins or sign a multi-million dollar contract with a team that’s not in a rebuild?

It is a tough call because he's 2 years from free agency. He's taking a gamble if he actually turns down a big extension from the Marlins.

It's not always as easy as whether or not he's gonna be on a rebuilding team. There are other factors that can lead a player to accept an extension.

If the agent is taking his direction for JT — and any decent agent of course should be taking direction from the player they represent — then this is a dickkkkkk move. Even if it’s a negotiation tactic to get a better deal from the Marlins, it’s an ugly, ugly way to do it. More than likely JT wants out, and his agent is creating pressure for the Marlins to do so.

If that’s the case, then whatever, fuck you and the bicycle you rode in on.

This lowers his trade value a bit since teams know Miami is now more desperate to move him, it is a dick move all around by the agent.

Right. The Marlins leverage point is something like: “Well, we aren’t trading you, so take the extension or risk getting hurt or having a down year and thereby leaving tens of millions of dollars on the table.”
