    The players union needs to fire Tony Clark because this was day was coming and when teams weren't spending in 2015 and 2016 and 2017, it was under this guise of "waiting for the big year" when anyone knows that MLB is finally run by 30 fairly competent GMs that know you don't have to spend the extra money in years and AAV to get a guy because no one really wants to offer it.

    Flaming moron couldn't read the tea leaves and now he's locked in to a terrible deal that is going to drastically change the sport.
    Better front offices across the league are a major factor, but when you see 30 teams all doing the same thing offseason after offseason, it does raise the appearance of collusion. MLB should be concerned about potential lawsuits and being subject to discovery.

    It was a fuck up. Going in a large chunk of his value was tied up on D. He was never a threat as a hitter.

    I don't agree. If you are a 70 win team you are better off getting worse to aim for a top 5 draft pick. Vs spending 30M to get to 75 wins.

    Cubs are over tax.

    A team like the Dodgers doesn't make sense as such with the Yanks. They already reset tax so there is nothing to gain by staying under.

    So I see it as the minority might be involved in it. The majority have no reason to waste payroll

    It just makes me think that the giants or whoever might consider trading for him are waiting to see what these two goofs get before asking for the balance due with a trade, or how much bad we need to take back.

    That is fiction. I see them shopping Madbum in June. Nothing else.

    They hurt themselves by not having a team option

    At 26 that is an exception. Heyward going in held 1/2 of his WAR in Defense.

    Not really...

    Sure the first 4-5 yrs of such deal would/could be great , but then being tied up for another 5+ years after that is what these owners and management most likely dont want anymore
