Reyes May Sign Tonight With Marlins


section18

Recommended Posts

They are now reporting he signed for 6 years and 106 million pending a physical. A player I would like to have on the Orioles and have talked about for a couple of years but........way too much money for him. Hopefully they have motivators in this contract for him. A minimum games clause being #1 due to his missing a lot of games over the years. Hopefully he'll never hurt an ankle or knee on a slide and lose his speed. It's a huge part of his game. Hard to believe they were that desperate in Miami. Who's next for them? Wilson?, Buehrle? Pujols? Pujols would never see a change up or a slow curve with Reyes on base ahead of him. His RBI'S would improve with Reyes batting leadoff. Only 99 RBI'S with 37 HR'S. He needs better hitters batting 1st or 2nd. Did they over pay for Reyes as the key to getting Albert to go to Miami? I think they did. Will Albert go to South Beach? I say yes. They'll probably give him other perks and there is no sales tax in Florida.

Free agent SS Jose Reyes agreed to sign a six-year deal with the Marlins on Sunday night, according to FOXSports.com. The contract is reported to be worth $106 million, and it does not include a no-trade clause. The deal will become final pending a physical.

No no-trade clause...too bad for him. I like the duration of the contract, but that's a lot of money for a guy with injury concerns.

That is an insane contract.

Is it? Over the last five years he's been worth about 20 wins, maybe a little shy of that. So that's about 4 wins a season, and at current rates that's about

$18-20M a year. Over six years the Marlins would be justified in valuing him at 4, 3.5, 3, 2.5, 2, and 1.5 wins, for a total of 16.5 wins. At $5M per win that's $82.5M.

So you could argue that they're overpaying by about $3M a year. Or... you could argue that they think he's going to decline more slowly than that, and that he'll actually be worth 21 wins (that would be worth $106M). Or that salaries in baseball will inflate more quickly, and that $106M is about 16.5 wins, which would mean a win would be worth $6.5M. Or some combination of the last two.

It's probably something of an overpay, but it's not extreme. It's not even close to the Ryan Howard deal, or a theoretical 8/200 deal for Fielder.

So have they said who is going to move, Hanley or Reyes? The deal would probably look a bit worse if Reyes is now switching positions to one with a higher offensive expectation.

Plan is to move Hanley to 3b.

Reported in the PB Post today that Hanley is "distraught" over having to make a position move. Loria thinks everything will work out fine. However, there is already speculation they may have to trade him.

Trading Hanley for Reyes and $111m is not a smart move. They'll work something out to keep Hanley there.

    • Is it really a big problem?    Walking guys is only rarely a good strategy.  
    • Some of this year’s struggles with LHP strike me as one of those fluky things that happen in baseball.   Here are some 2021/2022 numbers vs. LHP: Mountcastle .842/.713 Hays .897/.701 Mullins .788/.573 Now Mullins, in his switch hitting days, was weak vs. LHP.   When he switched to hitting from the left side exclusively, he hit them much better last year, but my impression is he did most of his damage in the first half of the season.  So, it may be that LHP have figured out how to attack him and his 2022 numbers are more predictive of the future than 2021.    Mountcastle and Hays, on the other hand, are capable of doing much better than they did this year vs. LHP. Rutschman has a .568 OPS vs. LHP and I feel that’s fluky as well.   He had good splits against LHP in the minors and in college.  My guess is he’ll work on his RH stroke in the offseason and do much better next year.  (Honestly, he doesn’t have much else to work on.) The way OPACY is set up now, it favors LHB and thus LHP figure to do well there.   We’re still facing RHP 70% of the time, so I don’t think we want to load up on RHB and put us at a disadvantage in our own ballpark just to address a problem that exists 30% of the time and may be a one-year anomaly.       
    • Oh he’s going to hit it against us. I just hope it’s off a pitcher that isn’t with us for the long term. Like Lyles, or one of our up/down relievers.    But I want to see our pitchers go at him. We’re about building respect in our franchise back, and building confidence for next year.    Hyde is class, and it’s time we got back to that completely. 
    • Funny thing … Mantle hit 500th and for the Os, the mighty Mark Belanger hit a HR lol … his only one in 1967 and one of 20 career over 18 seasons 
    • Oh we have a history of being part of Yankee lore … Cal breaking Lou’s record, and Stu Miller giving up Mickey’s 500th (when 500 meant something) .. The Yankees were spawned from the 1890s Oriole franchise moved by the fledgling AL to NY as the Highlanders for a season then Yankees pitch to the MFY and strike his butt out four times !!  http://mickeymantle.com/500th-home-run/  
    • True, but it's all the writers that make that vote, not just NY voters.  NY writers vote's don't carry more weight than anyone else's. Agree, I like him, overall.   I'll notice.  You'll notice.  Everyone here will notice.   Poking them in the eye, repeatedly.  Very hard, sharp, quick thrusts. But also, who do you want a record set against?  You or someone else?   True. TLDR   I'm not sure when you joined but I know you've been here awhile.  I'm pretty sure we're all well aware of Judge's history against us. If you need to be reminded, it's a .314/.430/.712 slash line with 35 homers.  That's more homers against any team and by a decent amount.  He's got 28 against the Jays and then the next highest amount is 21 against the Sox.   I've seen how our guys do pitching to him for years now and the results are hardly ever pretty.  He's got 9 homers against us this year, which is more than any other team.  I'm pretty sure I know how this story ends.
    • I thought at the time that Hyde likely was saving Mullins for pinch-running in case he needed some speed for the tying run.
