    Neither am I but it’s the going rate for superstar right now and with the DH being in the NL now, it makes me less hesitant on long term deals for position players

    Haters be like...

    “Man, eff this FO”

    AF trades for Mookie...

    “Yeah, but they’re too cheap to re-sign him”

    AF re-signs Mookie...




    ... “well, they’re still not gonna win a World Series because the FO doesn’t know how to win”

    Is there an escape clause?

    I thought you were pretty vocal about the front office not pulling the trigger on the mega deals that would push us over the top? That's weird.

    Wow.

    No opt outs and no No Trade Clause. We have 5 years to decide if we want to trade him wherever we want before he gains his 10/5 rights.

    That’s huge. It means that we could realistically have a bidding war for his services should we decide he’s not the future of the franchise at age 32.

    I was certainly advocating being more aggressive in getting the players necessary to put us over the top, but also being smart about it too. Anything longer than 7 years just seems a bit reckless. Look at Albert Pujols over in Anaheim or A-Rod's second mega-contract that began in 2008 with the Yankees. Obviously, if Betts can maintain his production into his mid-to-late 30's (similar to Adrian Beltre in Texas or David Ortiz in Boston), then that 12-year contract will be a success. But so many bad things can happen to a player in 12 years.
