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.

I agree.   And to be clear, we’re talking generally, not about the Orioles, right?    Because I don’t see the Orioles going after him in any event.

Correct, I agree with your assessment of the situation. He will land anywhere but Oriole Land, unless he does something crazy like offer to play here for league min, which has the probability of happening, like hell freezing over.

Would you pay Zach Wheeler $100M+?  Reports say that he has an offer in hand.

5 years, $118 million to Phillies.

A quarter of a BILLION dollars. 

 

Think about how much money that is.

They bought the team for $450 mm.   Now they’re paying $245 mm to one pitcher.

Martin Perez 1 year/$6M to Boston - the first of the class of guys who if any last until spring training may start to think about Baltimore.

If Eovaldi rather than Price is the salary dump they do to avoid tax on Mookie, that'd leave all four of their starters LHP.

Bumgarner's 5/85 has $15M in deferrals, and Hazen expressed gratitude at the press conference for his flexibility on structure.

MLB Network has a Rosenthal tweet saying deferrals are in middle 3 years and annual payouts are: 6/19/23/23/14.

I just looked at Diamondbacks long term and Mike Leake's 5/80 in its final year seems to be awfully close in raw dollars to Bumgarner's given it is a 4-year old contract.  Diamondbacks only owe Leake 6 of this year's 15, but they are paying 10 of Greinke's.

    • I don’t disagree with anything you said, and I’m grateful you said it. Everyone needs a designated driver. But lemme play devil’s advocate for a moment. This is 60 games. ~12 starts instead of 30. 60 starters instead of 162, and several guys who can start a time or two and not ruin our lives. One trait of greatness is consistency. Over 60, that is less important than over 162. Our starters and our pen appear much superior to the last couple years. Not enough to matter in 162 because the long season takes a toll, And quality-or lack thereof- finds its level, but in 60 games? Sure. And remember the short season doesn’t help the best, because the best doesn’t need the benefits a short season offers. The defense is much better too, unless Nunez is playing third, anyway. so yes I agree with you, but it’s not out of the question.  
    • This was a nice read.  And that's not sarcasm.
    • No qualifying offers this season.
    • If Stroman gets a qualifying offer he would cost the O's their third pick (either the comp pick after round 2 or, if that pick is traded, their third round pick). Jake Odorizzi got a QO this off-season at the same age as Stroman with a less successful career to date. I think it is quite likely that Stroman gets one too.
    • I appreciate Wildcards's enthusiasm and optimism. This season is such a wildcard because of all the variables that really anything could happen and I wouldn't be overly surprised. Saying that, there is no reality where this is the beginning of a sustainable winning core.  There is just as much of a chance of this team losing ten straight games as they do of keep playing .500 ball the rest of this season.  As Drungo has point out, there are some guys who have started out this season way above their carer norms. Even if you believe Severino, Ruiz, Alberto and Nunez are breaking out as they enter their primes, does anyone think Cobb, Milone and Wojo are going to keep pitching to their current ERAs? Cobb maybe since it seems his splitter has come back, but I'm not buying long term sustainability on Milone and Hyde has used Wojo right but not letting him go more than twice through an order. 
    • What does that mean? What's the cost of Wildcard's optimism? Also, I don't think what I said constituted being negative.  That's an honest appraisal of the team.    Not much of what we are seeing looks sustainable.
    • Yea I don’t know that I buy they will spend what it takes but they have very little money committed long term and that is when you can take advantage of it.
