I had to start a new thread after this Giancarlo Stanton deal.
So the Marlins are cheap as fuck but they decide to give Stanton the biggest contract in years and dollars in MLB history. Insane deal. A bad one too. Marlins better hope he opts out at 30 though I can't see a team giving him an 9-10 year deal at 30 to make that so.
No big deal like this has ever worked out. Granted players were a bit older but the clubs that signed them also had the financial stability to cover this. Didn't the Marlins trade all those Free Agents they signed a few years back because they sucked and nobody showed up? They even included a no trade clause so the Yankees can't bail them out.
Other MLB notes.
-The Nunz is pissed Hewyard got traded to the Cards. I am too but for different reasons.
-Russell Martin went to the Jays for 82 mil/5 years. Only club willing to give him the 5th year. Glad the Cubs passed.
-Maddon coming to he Cubs can't be said enough.
-Jose Canseco shot off his middle finger cleaning a gun(so he says), got it reattached, then it fell off during a poker tournament.
Free Agency will probably be boring outside the 2 big pitchers. Trades is where it will happen. Thinking the Cubs may be big in this.
