If I thought Dewitt was capable of shame I would be heartened by this development. Instead it will probably just get Boras a candygram with a copy of the ledger showing a $75 million profit and a xerox of Dollar Bill's taint.

Dewitt doesn't care about being called out - he's got bank to make.
Sounds to me like Boras is having issues this year finding his mystery team. He knows you can’t shame Dewitt into spending money.

Kimbrel apparently wants 100m for 6 years. Someone is going to sign him, but he is one guy that is difficult to asses risk. Now, I would never ever put up 9 figures for a relief pitcher, particularly one that just hit 30 years old. However he doesn't show the decline or "frayed edges" that other closers can show after over 5-7 years of heavy use. I bet someone pays him.

If you want to throw up a little in your mouth he made a million dollars less than what we paid Greg Holland last year.

He picked the wrong year to wade into the market seeking a massive deal as a reliever.

There was NOBODY signed last during last off-seasons 'relieverpalooza' that paid off. That was a complete shitshow. Davis, Holland, Morrow, Reed, Nicasio, Shaw, Swarzak, McGee, Hunter, Neshek, Kintzler, Gregerson - those eleven guys totaled -.1 WAR.

The cream of last year's free agent reliever crop was worse than just hucking 11 organizational relief arms at the problem. You know what the outlay on those guys last year was? About $110 million in AAV.

$110 million for teams to literally make their teams worse last season. You wanna know why people parrot that stupid "A win is worth $8 million on the open market" bullshit? There's your answer. 11 absolutely idiotic contracts given to guys who literally did nothing for their teams. Better than half that lot was below replacement value.

The only team to actually get some value out of a relatively expensive off-season relief pitcher was the Cubs getting 2+ wins out of Steve Cishek at $6.5 million.

I agree, paying FA relievers has a bad history period, especially big deals. Ironically, he may be an exception (just not a 100 million dollar exception).

He should get something like 3 for 45. Those other turds should have gotten something like 3 for 12.

Y'all deserve to see this since FSMW got so thoroughly eviscerated for it last night that they deleted the post within in an hour. God it was beautiful.

Ladies and gentlemen, FSMW presents "Give Dex and his smile a chance...it's the right thing to do"

I'm serious....




I'm genuinely embarrassed to be a fan of this team right now.

Do you recognize now how ****ing lunatic stupid that sounds when you see someone else try it?

No, Goldschmidt changes nothing and anyone that thinks he did is simply not paying attention.
