Orioles offer BRob 3yr 30 million


33rdst

Recommended Posts

This is incredibly bizzarre. When I read and copied the article the first time they discussed how the Orioles had offered Roberts a 3 yr contract for ten million per year. When I went back to recopy the url after SG said he was having problems with the link, the article had been edited and the info on Brob was removed. I wonder if someone let the cat out of the bag too soon by mistake. This was the first time I read the length of the contract offered to Brob in any article.
There have been rumors for some time that the O's offered Roberts a 3/$30M deal. No cats have been let out. This is old news.

3/$30 mm is fine. I'd be willing to give him some incentive bonuses for being an all-star like we did with Nick. I really don't think we should offer more years or much more in guaranteed dollars.

Reviewing the terms of Nick's deal, the O's have been pretty creative in creating a structure that gives the player some upside. I wouldn't be against a structure that gives BRob some upside if he's still productive in the 3rd year.

Maybe they pulled it because Roberts has just accepted a deal. ;)

In this market climate how much do you think he would get as a free agent. 10 million per year? I honestly dont think he would. I think 8 million is more like it. People are saying Dunn wont get 10 million per year. You think Roberts is worth the same?

I think Roberts wants to go to a winner now. I think he probally knows he wont get more than 10 million but wants us to trade him so he can negotiate a similar contract elsewhere.

What somehow got lost in the other thread about Markakis is the fact that the Orioles apparently offered Roberts a three year 30 million dollars, which Roberts has rejcected. How high would you go for Roberts?

I think the Orioles gave Roberts a decent offer. Since he declined that offer, I would ship him out of town and attempt to get back younger players in return.

Where were those rumors from?

The Sun reported that they had offered a multi-year deal for 10 million a year..That is the closest I have seen to any rumor about this.

Roberts is quite a bit more valuable than Dunn.

Brob has been worth $42M over the past two years according to Fangraphs, Dunn has been worth $23.5M.

I think Roberts would have gotten over 10 million a year despite the economy.

The MLBN Hot Stove discussion last week about Roberts seemed to indicate the team was offering a three year deal, but he was looking for an additional year. That is the last I heard.

I wonder if 3 plus an option would be an acceptable compromise for Roberts...:scratchchinhmm:

From the article dated Jan. 19

It also allows MacPhail to turn his focus to other issues, including the long-term status of Roberts, the two-time All-Star second baseman who will be a free agent after this coming season. The Orioles offered Roberts a three-year deal worth $30 million, according to baseball sources, but the two sides remain apart in the negotiation
Source - The Sun, Jan 19

He didn't necessarily reject the offer, but he didn't accept it either (obviously)

No mystery, the information is still there. Your link needs to be updated. (see above)

Maybe if it is a player option.

What happens if a player declines his option? Would the team get the draft pick when he signs with another team? I know if a team declines a team option, they can't get the draft pick.
