Some want the money (Sanchez)
Some want the ring (Hunter)
Adios Anibal. Have a nice life.
Won't bother me one bit. But I would like to add another starter thou.
Sanchez will suck where ever he goes.
Now that Grienke and Shields are off the market, I wonder how much longer we wait on Sanchez's decision?
I still think he comes back to Detroit on a $5yr $65/70 mill deal and then Porcello gets traded for a CL
The Angels and Rangers will have something to say about Sanchez.And who knows. Maybe another team comes in on him.I honestly hope we don't give him five years if we do make him an offer. Three max. In my opinion he really isn't worth it.But thats what the market is saying.

Remember, he is only 28-years-old, and could very well be on the brink of entering his prime. The prime version of Sanchez could mirror Zack Greinke, or possibly even Felix Hernandez if he logs a few more innings a season.
Since 2010, Sanchez has ranked in the middle of the pack based on basic stats, as his earned run average checks in the mid 3.00s. But if you dig a littler deeper, Sanchez has been better than just a middle of the pack pitcher over the past three seasons. His FIP (Fielding Independent Percentage) of 3.40 ranks 18th in baseball since 2010.
FIP is a stat that basically calculates what a pitcher’s ERA should be without bad luck and errors. His 3.40 mark fixtures him into a broad group consisting of Chris Carpenter, Gio Gonzalez,Tim Lincecum, and Mat Latos. Those are some highly respected and accomplished names.
Additionally, his stellar postseason performances (3 Starts, 1.77 ERA increased his value greatly. Not only did he produce on the big stage, but he did it against formidable offenses in the New York Yankees, Oakland A’s and San Francisco Giants. All three of those teams know how to score, whether it’s through the long ball or small ball. Sanchez, though, kept their respective scoring outputs to a minimum.
Basically, Sanchez is worth the hype of a massive contract, as the right-hander is essentially a rich man’s version of Hiroki Kuroda, except Sanchez will sign for more years. Talent-wise, he vaunts the potential to become even better than he currently is, and could make for a really nice number two starter in any team’s rotation. While many fans may disagree, Sanchez is worth all $90 million.
I wouldn't give him $90M but I definitely think he's worth 4yr/$65M.
Sanchez is easily worth $90 million over 6 years if Greinke is worth what he got, it's not even close when you're talking about value.
Onley just reported that the Dodgers are out on Sanchez.
