Realmuto updates and rumors

Another thing, there's still time for them to make that last offer whether JT and his agent wanna hear it or not. Offer him 5/90 just to be safe and then trade him when he turns that down.

Yeah, I've accepted the fact he'll be gone soon.  What I'm more concerned about is the optics of it - like I said above, right now it looks like we low-balled and then didn't try further once we were turned down.  Throw out your best offer and make him turn it down (or not respond).  Then that's your narrative going forward - we offered a fair deal, they weren't willing to negotiate.  Right now its "well, we offered a deal....that counts, right?"

The Marlins need to make (at some point) a VERY public final offer to JT for public relations purposes.

I agree to a point but I also don't think it'll matter to many. Even if they offered 5/100, they'd be called cheap for not giving JT whatever he wants.

MLB.com has learned that the Marlins have been willing -- as a starting point in talks -- to strike a five- or six-year deal with Realmuto that would -- after covering his remaining two arbitration seasons -- have an average annual value (AAV) during his would-be free-agent years (starting in 2021) of at least $16 million. That's in the range of the $16.4 million AAV that Russell Martin got when he signed with the Blue Jays. Martin signed a five-year, $82 million deal with Toronto in 2015.

McCann previously signed for five years and $85 million with the Yankees -- a deal that ran from 2014-18, and had an AAV of $17 million.

Miami was prepared to place Realmuto in the Martin-McCann range.

You should have read his entire post. He said "for public relations purposes."

It's weird man because JT is better than Martin and McCann plus it's been like 4 years since those deals happened. Even if they think he's as good as them contract values go up so he should be getting more than what they got and not the same.

Agreed. 16 AAV is not enough in the FA years. Should be 20 for those years.

5/$70 is where they should have started, not the "third" offer.

5/$80 is the sweet spot for everyone, which has been a broken record for half a year. Maybe you go to $85 to pay an incompetence Marlins front office tax for offering such BS initial offers (and fighting him in arbitration last year for $600k), but past that it's, no thanks. He's not worth more than that and trade him to a team he will sign that exact deal with.
