Didi did not receive a qualifying offer 

IMO, they are moving on at the right time.  They got a lot out of him.

I think MLBTR is right, Didi could return back with a good off-season to get healthy and still be one of the better SS in the game.

1 year deal to prove that, might be best for him.

Schoop not even in the top 50, which goes all the way down to an FA projected to make $3 mm this year.    It would surprise me a bit if he didn’t get a contract exceeding that.

I am still finding the deal he made to sell off a portion of his future earnings to be very interesting.

Looks like the investors may have a losing proposition on their hands.   As I recall, $49 mm in career earnings is the break even point.

I recall some thinking Schoop while a nice guy, just didnt have it to play at the MLB level.

Clearly, they were wrong, he just didnt have it for a super long career.

He’s still playing, and I think he’s got a few more years in him.    But making $49 mm now looks remote.  He’s made about $21 mm to date.

yes he does, but his skills are declining and he wasnt the most skilled player on the roster.

You never know about career paths.   Schoop wasn’t awful last year by any stretch — 1.6 rWAR, 1.3 fWAR.    Fangraphs seems to think someone will want him and pay in the 1/$7 mm or 2/$14 mm range.   We’ll see about that, but I expect he’ll be on a major league roster somewhere.    His big problem this year was that Luis Arraez came up and hit .334/.399/.439, so Schoop understandably started losing playing time.

True, not awful, but a step down from his 2017 season, and throw in 2016 too.

Has he peaked and this is new baseline norm?

Maybe / Maybe not, time will tell.

I would take him on a 1 year deal, but long term and price range, would be a concern.
