    I'm guessing they increased the years to lower the AAV for CBT reasons, but holy shit, 11 years for a guy about to turn 30 is crazy.

    He was expected to get 300M over fewer years. This might be a little more team friendly than people thought.

    Philly probably already accepted that they'll be trash in the back half of the deal anyways.

    Gotta take advantage of your window.

    Nice landing spot for Trea Turner's fantasy value.

    Why didn't you just say that in the first place!?
    Yeah, back to square one, let character issues come down to quantifiable things (crime, accusations of criminal activity)
    At least this guy can be shamelessly honest though. Canít say the same for these d-bags hiding behind votes

    Toddlermeyer just slings F-bombs and sound like some unhinged loon. By his own admission, his hate is opinion based and nothing to do with merit.

    Every time I have gone after you for something it has been a counter argument supported by facts or experience. Nothing to do with your personal opinions not related to this board.

    Yea donít get me wrong great player. He could go back into the Outfield as well. I just didnít see the 11 years coming. He just wonít be the level of player he is not in the final 4-5 years of that contract. Good for him though.

    Back to Turner.

    People were gasping when Diaz got his deal.


    It is the new market folks. You either go that extra $$ or term or someone else will.

    Similar to the housing market in desirable locations... .. Insane prices but unless you want to rent the rest of your life (not cheap either), you need to pay or someone else will.

    Really it comes down to not what someone is worth or longevity of the contract. It is what someone else will pay to obtain the same thing and if you want it, or want to deprive someone else (competition of it) you need to pay.

    All I think about when I hear these deals is how it will impact the Jays ability to sign anyone of significance. They're not going into luxury tax territory... Trades it is.

    Schilling has some offensive views but what makes him worse than Kirby Puckett, Roberto Alomar or even a drug addict like Roy Halladay? Those guys are just off the top of my head I'm sure there are guys in there that are much worse.

    Listen, you big loser. You opinions are outdated. This is the Toronto Blue Jays after signing George Springer and Kevin Gausman, two top of class free agents.

    Remove your whiny, second tier loser fan head from your loser fan anus.

    Ryu was signed the year before that too. We basically sign one top tier FA each year now. We aren't LA or the NYY but are otherwise considered a big market team now.
