Yoan Moncada Declared a Free Agent (To Sign w/Red Sox)

Recommended Posts

Wade Miley's career numbers are similar to Tillman only because by the age Miley reached the Majors, Tillman had struggled for 180 mediocre innings.

Rick Porcello (116 ERA+ at age 25, which was his 6th full season in the majors, had 35 ML wins at an age where Kevin Gausman was still in college).

Wade Miley (career numbers extremely similar to Tillman)

Joe Kelly (only 26, been solid, has upside, think Bud Norris)

Clay Buchholz, been up and down, electric #1 stuff when healthy

Justin Masterson, former #1, all depends on his health, still only 29

Matt Barnes, been a stud in minors, ready for breakout season?

and I actually fully expect the Red Sox to add another starter maybe even Cole Hammels, as they have a glut of OF'ers

The 27 Year Old Catch to signing Moncada. And how to avoid paying more international penalty.

http://nypost.com/2015/02/22/the-27-year-old-catch-to-signing-cuban-phenom-moncada/

However, there is a catch to landing the 19-year-old, switch-hitting Cuban second baseman: Carlos Mesa.

According to people with knowledge of the situation, Moncada wants his future team to sign his mentor, a 27-year-old outfielder who played in Cuba for two years as a teenager, was inactive for three seasons, spent three years in the lower levels of the Pirates system and last season worked for Camden (Independent League).

“You might have to keep [Mesa] around to help him,’’ a source said.

It also appears that the Red Sox may have paid as much as 10 million dollars to the player and 10 million dollars to the league more than the next highest offer.

So you only see the negatives in the Orioles but positives in other teams?

MLB.com's Jesse Sanchez reports that the Red Sox have signed Cuban infielder Yoan Moncada.

The bonus will be in the $30 million range, and then the Red Sox will have to pay double that amount in penalties for eclipsing their international signing limit. The Yankees and Dodgers had been viewed as the favorites for Moncada in recent weeks, but Boston was always lurking (along with San Diego and Milwaukee). The 19-year-old Moncada is a five-tool infield prospect with the goods to rise swiftly through the Red Sox farm system. It's a huge get -- and a huge risk at $60 million -- for Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington.

AndI assume they have to pay all 60 million right now. No way a team like the Os could do this. He would take up half the teams payroll this year.

They can split up the payment to the player over three seasons.

    • It’s a supply and demand thing.  Whether someone offers X amount of dollars is irrelevant.  The Os And their structure, could use his bat and his production.   Most teams don’t have that combo of at bats and money they can spend on a player with his skill set.     The Os do...and the idea that other teams chose not to do it is irrelevant to his value to this organization.  The idea that they may be looking into Puig (conjecture) and brought on a LH DH type at REINFORCES the idea that this is salary driven, not producing driven imo.     My only argument with this decision is that this isn’t solely or even largely driven by roster management despite what Elias says.  He is lying for management.
    • Your tone of authority when you are clearly in a fog is admirable.  Anyone who thought his arbitration number was a bargain, as you suggest, could have offered a warm body to secure his services before he hit the open market.  What won't make sense is if any team offers him 2M or more now that he's available to any team that wants him.
    • There are three vaccines, possibly four or five, if you trust the Chinese and Russians. Every factory on the world is going to be producing them. We may delay the start of spring training(only three months away) but I don’t think the season will start late. We may have distanced crowds, though.
    • No, it absolutely is the formula and what’s he’s worth.  That’s a fact. However, there are only a few teams that need a DH, so it’s not surprising that the market isn’t there..plus, you have announced that you are cutting him, so why trade for him with so little completion?
    • Nevin may get reps at 3B, LF, and DH.  Shaw fits in well as a 1B, LF, DH option too
    • My baby. The only guitar I have left.
