Fernando Tatis Signs Mega-Extension


Recommended Posts


I know this kid is great but hasn't he only completed like one season's worth of major league time? Seems a bit of a rush and a real risk. I don't know how I feel about this. If I'm a Padres fan I think I'm excited today but scared shitless that this might be a big problem for my team a few years from now.

This takes balls. This is commitment.  I'm cheering for the Padres to succeed. I hope the Marlins are paying attention.

where are the Padres supposedly getting their money from ? aren't they a small market team ?

I mean, remember we signed Stanton to a mega deal too......

 

 

 

----

 

I'm interested to see how it's structured, and if it's done similarly to Stanton's or if it's more evenly spread?

 

I also just remembered they have Machado and his $300M deal......

 

2021:

Machado - $32M

Myers - 22.5M

Hosmer - 21M

Darvish - 19M (it's 22, but Cubs are paying 3M of that)

-----

94.5M in just those 5 guys before this Tatis deal........

 

I'd have to imagine the Tatis one is backloaded to help them out with some of these other deals.

 

 

Who backed up the Brinks truck at Petco?

It's not a bad move but it's not guaranteed to work and if it doesn't... oh boy!

Padres will end it up as the Phillies did, mega deals to position players and no pitching

Oh, dude ... they've got arms on arms coming up. They're much better positioned than Philly.

So do the Marlins have to think about doing deals like this sooner than later? Maybe not this big but a long extension for their younger stars like Sixto?

In 2023.

We ask Loria the same question when he gives Stanton the 13/325, he says just don't worry because always got the stupid teams to eat that contract.

This isn't the same.  Loria back loaded the deal with no intention of keeping Stanton long term. That's no what the Padres are doing.   At least I hope not.

I'm not big on going all out on Free Agency. Keeping your young core players under contract through their prime years is where the money should be spent.

The contract itself is fine... they're guaranteeing they keep Tatis for 14 years at a reasonable and pre determined price because imagine what teams would have to pay him if he were to hit free agency, this is basically a savings for the Padres believe it or not. They're essentially getting him at a discount. I'm just saying they better hope this guy doesn't fall off the face of the Earth.

I haven't seen anything on the breakdown of the contract.

 

But with the other hefty contracts they have on the books (which I pointed out above), I can't see how it doesn't start small and increase heavily as the contract goes on.
