What is the benefit to deferring money? That will just cause problems later.

They should have that much to spend IMO.

I think he gets more!

The benefit is that MLB teams keep making more money, and it would be easier to absorb some of his salary seven years from now.

Make the case the right way and I wouldn't be surprised if PA considered 6/144 reasonable enough to consider it an exception. I have to say I'm surprised that the guess is that low.
I would imagine Boras will be asking 10/250 M and wont get serious until mid Jan.

You rarely see the big bats hanging around that long. I bet he signs before the end of the year. 6/144 sounds about right to me. Maybe he gets an extra year from someone but the annual value there seems about right.

Boras likes to create bidding wars and drags things out forever. If you were him who would you rather be selling Choo or CD?

Don't forget the amazing 15 year offer from some "mystery team"! I really hope this is the year that someone calls out Boras for that rubbish.

6 years is a great length. He'll be 30 at the start of next spring training and 35 when he finished the contract. He's a power hitter and strikes out a ton. But he should be able to hit a minium of 30 HRs a year in each year. Not a high average hitter, but he has been willing to take a walk.

BUT BUT BUT, you cannot invest in him at the exclusion of getting someone worthy to hit behind him.

4.Davis

5.(Not currently on the roster)

someone will over pay. rather offer him 6/156 or add a 7th year as a club option and an 8th year as a player option. If he's good to keep on at age 36, he has a premium payment for age 37.

Don't make an offer if you are not willing to pay. If they determine that 24 million is better spent on a pitcher, I would not object

They aren't spending 24 M on a SP and they aren't spending it on CD.

I agree that they would likely never pay a pitcher $24 mil, particularly for six years. I'm not so sure about Davis though.

And, "5" would be Adam Jones.

A middle lineup of:

3 Manny

4 Davis

5 Jones

6 Schoop

That would not be bad. Plus, your infield defense should still be solid with Hardy at shortstop. It still leaves holes at corner of, and to the sp, but it would be a good starting point with approx 20-30 mil left to spend
