    I wanna just buy out 2 or 3 FA years. He'll still be young enough when it expires. Want no part of thirty-something Vlad, tbh.

    He's still only 23, and the bat should age well
    For luxury tax purposes, any Vlad extension should begin in 2024 so it doesn't impact 2023 lux tax payroll, so now that his 2023 arb figure is taken care of, maybe they will start the extension talks.

    Shorter deal anyone would want higher AAV

    You'd prefer say 6-7 years x35M (about what Correa just got) over say 12 years x 28-30M?

    Are you sure his body will age well? I don't trust fatties.

    I've said it before but any Vlad extension needs to be structured similarly to Zion Williamson's in the NBA where he must be under a particular weight number or else the contract can be voided.

    The worse sign is that his father didn't age that well and he was in better shape.

    Combination of ARB and FA years will lessen the AAV. Don't pay much attention to arb awards but offhand $35M AAV seems high in this scenario.

    He's just so damn young I'm not terribly concerned about a 10 or even 12 year extension for him as long as they AAV is around 25 mil or less. That would be through his age 33-35 seasons. Even if he's a 1.5 to 2 WAR player by the time he's 33 a deal like that won't kill us.

    I think I'd be fine with a 11-12 year deal for Vlad, even acknowledging the weight issues and possibility for some dead money towards the end. He had a 132 wRC+ at age 23 in a down year. We all know what the ceiling is. Seems like a worthwhile gamble to take. Maybe a 11/285.5m extension would work. Once you add his 2023 arb figure it comes out to 12/300, so it's a round enough number for Vlad, and it's $25-26m AAV from 25-35, so it wouldn't be like Pujols or Cabrera where you're running him out there in his late-30's/40's. I'm guessing he would sign a deal like that. Whether the Jays would offer it, I have no idea, but that's probably what it takes to get it done.

    Probably felt like he came into last season in great shape and didnít hit like he wanted toÖ and the lesson he took away was donít bother trying to stay fit

    Yeah thatís never going to happen. A weight clause? Get real

    That's what it seems like to me to but that doesn't really jive with "bringing the fences in" does it?
