pretty surprised darvish turned NYY down
it's gotta be between texas and LA now
If they can't get rid of Ells then they are out either way. They are obsessed with not hitting the luxury tax. He'd obviously be a welcome addition but they are good with or without him.
Can't fault the guy for shooting for the moon, especially now that he's in his early 30's.
A one year deal for JD?
Great, so we get to go through this all again next year?
I believe he'll be a free agent next offseason.
You're probably right, and seeing as how the team seems reluctant to sign him to a long-term deal, I guess we can enjoy JDs swan song season in Toronto.
The way this off-season has gone, it might be a short one.
I think they should trade him, but who knows.
Yeah trading Donaldson might not be such a bad idea. At least get something for him.
Donaldson signed the one year deal to avoid arbitration. He was only ever getting one year unless he signed a long-term contract. The one year deal to avoid arbitration makes sense for both sides - Donaldson remains eligible for free agency next offseason and the team will have at least to July to assess whether Donaldson will be a part of the team going forward.
Does darvish have any idea what's going on? Lol
I saw something along the lines of a 7 year, 160, and then someone refuting it by saying 7 year, 120.
I still would have to imagine that him getting 7 years would be something of a coup. It's hard to tell... my guess is that he might be waiting a little bit on a Cole trade, since that would basically make him the only impact option available (I don't think there's even a chance Archer or Fulmer are moved now).
So it appears the Padres are moving out of the 'trade everything for futures' phase and have entered the 'try to retain your talent to build something' phase.
Lot's of people seem to be turning them down.
guess they'll just sew bruce and gonzalez together.
did @MurrayBannerman see what Contreras said to Lester at Cubs convention
he autographed it on a few people's bats as well lol
Its unfortunate Shatkins don't care to pay Donaldson what hes worth over a 4-5 year contract. The best player they've had since Alomar and they don't care to keep him around.
Makes zero sense. Former AL MVP, and the Jays have taken him to arbitration twice.
Almost as if their aversion to five year deals is still in place, years after AA left town.
nats close to 2 year 7 mil deal for howie kendrick
Yeah, keeping Donaldson long-term would be key but I doubt Toronto does that. I think he's gone at the trade deadline if Toronto's out of the playoff race.
RIP to the umpire known as God
Deep bench is key.
