    With Jacob deGrom and Justin Verlander off the market — to the Rangers and to the Mets, respectively — Carlos Rodon is the clear top starting pitcher left on the free-agent market. As one would expect for a 29-year-old lefty (30 next week) who opted out of the second season of his contract on the heels leading the National League in strikeouts, the asking price appears quite high. Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports that agent Scott Boras and Rodon have been seeking a six-year deal at an annual rate of $30MM or more. (Notably, that report pre-dates Verlander’s new agreement with the Mets.) Heyman suggests that the Yankees are the large-market team that is most focused on Rodon at present.
    Makes the Gausman deal look like a steal in comparison

    Pretty much. He’s going to be known as one of the greatest Dodgers ever, spend his entire career there and have a chance at a WS every year. He doesn’t need 80M to move home to Dallas and play for a bad team.

    Yeah. He's the Dodgers all-time leader in Ks and is a couple years from being the franchise leader in wins. Cementing his legacy as the greatest Dodger pitcher of all-time and pitching for the best team in baseball is apparently worth it to him vs. going to Texas and winning 80 games with a mediocre team. I can't imagine wanting to leave LA if I were in his shoes.

    Insightful commentary, clear rational behind your reasoning, coupled with meticulously sourced evidence.

    I think he could get close to stupid money; the Rangers would probably offer even more than the 80 mil I threw out there and with a 0% tax rate in TX vs 13.3% rate in CA it works out to even more. I'm not saying he should or shouldn't I was just pointing out that the rich get richer and that he was leaving a ton of money on the table. Good for him though, it seems like 99% of players take whoever offers the most money.

    11 years for Turner is pretty crazy. Speed is a big part of his game.

    This feels like one of those 'mistake the moment the ink dries' deals.

    I think he's proven he's a good hitter and its not just because of his speed. He can probably comfortably shift to 2B in a few years and still be above average. Definitely a risky deal for 11 years, but pretty much any deal longer than 8 years isn't a great idea.
