Padres lock up Tatis for 14 years

Recommended Posts

I'll give the owner props for being bold.

If you are going to give someone this kind of contract a 22 year old averaging 7 rWAR/143 games is a good choice.

Fair amount of risk considering he won’t be a free agent for four years.  But he should be well worth it if healthy.

I think that the deal will look better after the next CBA is finalized.

How in the world can a small market like San Diego afford such a contract? I was told it was "impossible" for a team with FAR more resources. 

They aren't paying Davis.

They ARE paying Machado 10/300. Not only one 300m deal...but TWO! In one of the worst markets in all of baseball.

And signed Hosmer to an 8/144 deal.

You really are a one-note Charlie.   Why do you say the Orioles have far more resources?    Per Forbes, the Padres had about $43 mm more in revenues than the Orioles did in 2019.    Their principal owner, Peter Seidler, founded a private equity firm that is valued at $3 bb.

Tell me about the Padres regional sports network that brings in tons of cash every year. Well they own 20% of a tiny market, I'm sure they are at least breaking even. Oh and I know the Angelos family definitely is poor and not billionaire status. I'm a one note charlie who has proven to be right about every single thing I have said about this ownership over the past 15 years.
