I just heard a report on 105.7 the fan that King Felix just signed a 7 year $175 million extension with the Mariners, The money thrown around in baseball is just completely out of control. It will eventually hit a wall and a CAP will have to be implemented.

they won't put a cap on baseball when the Dodgers will get $280M/year in their new cable deal. Seattle must be a big market team to hand out a contract like that...oh, wait

I gotta say. You know you're my paisan, but I swear, you're like Trea with this stuff. We get it...Angelos is your Antichrist.

I've said this numerous times before ........ in my rat's ass of an opinion, this is precisely what Alex Rodriguez should have done way back when. And this is the first thing that came to my mind when I saw this thread:

The worst thing that Rodriguez ever did was leave Seattle for Texas way back when. He was on a great team, he was well-liked by his teammates, his manager, and the Mariner fans, and he was making plenty of money (once you go beyond a certain point in finances, the old Wall Street movie saying applies: "How many yachts can you water-ski behind?")

He left the Mariners for a last-place team because he wanted to fill his ego with the largest contract ever, used steroids for at least 3 years (he copped to 3 years. People usually cop to something less egregious than what they actually did.) Then, he turned around and whined that he wanted out of Texas because they continued to be finish last place all 3 years that he was with them, even though he VOLUNTARILY signed a 10-year contract. He got his wish when he was dealt to the Yankees, and then he proceeded to play like one of the biggest losers in post-season history since Game Four of the 2004 ALCS Then, WHILE the Red Sox were playing and winning the World Series in 2007, he whined that he was "underpaid and under-appreciated" by the Yankees because they were paying him "only" $25 Million a year. Of course, the Steinbrenners gave the infantile whiner his wish, and gave him a new contract for 10 additional years at $30 - $33 Million per year.

And the funniest thing of all is, if he had a chance to have a "do over" with his life, I would bet that the dumb, egotistical, clueless moron probably wouldn't change a thing. Frankly, I think that he really is a stupid person, and not just because l dislike him as a player.

And with that, I think that it was a great decision for Hernandez to stay with his current team, even though they are a team that just completed their 3rd consecutive losing season (unlike when Rodriguez left them when they had just made it to the ALCS, and would then go on to win 116, 93, and 93 games respectively over the next 3 years.)
