    By getting Bruce they will spend the payroll $$ plus he gets to say we tried to sign Edwin and Fowler

    His injuries and age have killed his value, the QO is more like a nail in his value coffin.

    Thing is, Bautista has had the unfortunate timing of being a late breakout star. As a result he never had his prime years when he was 22-28 and command that massive FA payday that players crave. Instead, he broke out late out of nowhere and signed what turned out to be a very team friendly contract that took well into what is normally a players decline of their career.

    Isn't that exactly what's happening?

    FFS just give him 2-3 years.

    Again, one year removed from near .400 wOBA and 40 HR. He's still potentially an elite bat.

    There's absolutely no reason to give him the 3rd year anymore. Turner just signed for $16M and he's a far superior player. 2 years $30M is about as high as we should go for Jose. Nobody else in baseball is going to give him that much + a draft pick. He has no options left. His arrogance backfired immensely.

    It looks like the team is placing a lot of value on the 1st round pick.

    Bautista is the type of player who would sign a shit contract on a shitty team just to save face and ego. He won't be back here

    Then why aren't others lining up to lock him down? And don't tell me the 1st rounder...cause you're quoting .400wOBA and 40HR's...that's clearly worth the first rounder.

    His arrogance and chest puffing at ST really backfired big time. He should have signed an extension, it's probably going to cost him 50-60 mill.

    Though the shittier the team, the less likely they are to sign him, right? Atlanta or Minnesota would have to lose damn near first overall pick in the draft, isn't that how it works?

    No, those teams would have a protected pick.

    No it's not. The top 10 picks are protected. Those teams would surrender their next highest pick.

    Rockies surrendered the 11th overall pick to sign Ian Desmond. They are dumb.

    No, the top teams are protected. They would surrender a second round pick.
