    I’d like to realistically pay $1.99/g for gas. It’s like $1.50 in the 2nd rate countries I was in. If I only it worked like that
    Won’t be fun signing any big names

He was already due $60M over three yeees if he opted in, so really it ended up being a 1 year $30M extension. Just a total misalignment of value.

    Like if they offer him $150M over 6 years or something in Spring Training, they probably sign him and it would’ve been a fair value deal that would’ve aged incredibly well in this market.
    Bloom fucked up twice here: the biggest mistake was not getting it done before last season, and the second mistake was holding him at the deadline with Boston out of contention. Once those ships sailed he was right to let him go.
