    Prices might be starting to drop some. 3 for 39 is a fair FA deal.

    Whose price is going to drop enough for the Jays to sign him? Cain seems like a long shot, even though heís probably looking at a four year deal now. JDM will get paid because Boras and because Dumbrowski. Not sure who else is worth it thatís out there. Lots of platoon bats and non difference makers.

    Cain at 4/60 would be a pretty good deal.

    Anyone hear about the agent who just got fired for filming his clients in the shower. Just slightly disturbing.

    This is a fantastic article by Kiley McDaniel (and Eric Longenhagen, but mostly Kiley) about the scouts or stats debate:

    I'm guessing scouts are more righter considering the source of the article but Kiley can fuck off because KATOH is the only scout I love.

    Imagine you’ve a national crosschecker with 25 years of experience in the game. You kill yourself with one day at home a week for four straight months trying to learn everything about the players in your region leading up to the draft — this, after seven months of preparation scouting these players in the preceding summer and fall. Then you get in the draft room and start stacking the board as a department when a couple guys from the office who saw zero players — who don’t know how to scout and first started working for a club a few years ago — have more weight in the room than you do.
    So this is a completely feelings based argument, gross. Why is Kiley writing for Fangraphs again? Thought he was with a team or something.

    JD Martinez says he's willing to "hold out" until spring training.

    ... And then what, JD? You'll sign anything you're offered?

    I wonder when agents will start crying 'collusion'

    Maybe team realize its not a great idea to give a below average outfielder who likely will end up at 1st or DH a huge contract of 6+years

    True. But when have bad decisions stopped GMs before. Collusion has happened before. I have no doubt it could happen again.

    I wonder if the PA will fight to get years of control to drop to 5. They fucked themselves by agreeing to the spending caps in the draft and IFA. Teams will still pay for players, they just understand the aging curve much more.

    I think we're already seeing a trend of players (at least stars) not willing to sign away FA years on pre-arb extensions.

    Dombrowski will give him a 6 or 7 year deal. Just a matter of when.
