Yeah seriously, Ted Williams couldn't make contact with that knuckler irght now
No way is Cespedes going to the minors...too much investment, the A's need excitement, nad since they're not going to be competitive this year, why not let him learn at the highest level?
As alluded to towards the end, even the best offers seem below current market.
At worst, they don't pan out and become good MLB regulars, so you get saddled with a Werth contract (bad but not crippling). At best, you get modern day Pujols-esque productivity for $100 million less.
With their competitiveness, drive to be the best, and all-out effort on the field, I'd go all-in as well (if all-in < 9/$200).
Those ARod seasons aren't even within sniffing distance?
Ackley deserves to get called up to the bigs in a couple weeks. He definitely looks like at least a .280 hitter in the majors. Agree?
Thought this was a fair deal for both sides. It mitigates the risk for both sides. For the Mariners, they eliminated the possibility of Felix leaving after 2 years to sign a more lucrative, longer term contract. For Felix, he got a market rate for his next 5 years and locks that in regardless of injury or under performance.
