    Considering past contracts signed by other elite free agent catchers (which is what Grandal is) I don't think so, so long as he gets at least 3 years and 42 million next year, he'll have broken even.
    Considering he's going to a very good offensive ball park, seeing him get an AAV worth less than 14 million doesn't seem like much of a stretch.

    And I think the thing that can help grandal is that his bat actually plays. He's not just a good hitter for a catcher, he's just generally a pretty decent hitter. So as long as his bat stays somewhat close to where he's been at for most his career, he's playable at 1st or DH to an extent. So while 30 isn't young for a catcher, he may age fairly well considering his bat plays elsewhere. Which probably can help him maybe get another longer term offer.
    Yeah, this is true, to an AL team with a DH and another solid catcher, he could have legit value. IDK maybe Toronto next year if they feel they're close to competing again.
    Bring him in to start and to mentor Danny Jansen. Splitting time at catcher and DH.

    Another thing to consider is he's likely making more this year in total dollars than he would have if he signed with the mets, since the mets deal had an AAV of 15 million and he's making over 18, on top of that the mets likely back loaded that contract, so had he taken the deal he probably would have only made 12-13 million this year, instead o the 18 and change he got. And it's still above the QO the dodgers made to him.
