Yes …. But I think we can agree that when he’s said stuff so far it’s been spot on. The middle of the league payroll was 137 million. That number differs from the average being $115 million.
With the increase in revenue from the tv deal and the $30 million Disney windfall those numbers should rise 10-20 percent.
I’m betting he has a budget somewhere around the league average. Will he spend all that? The trade additions will almost certainly increase the payroll.
I think we will be surprised once the chips start falling. I’d make extending Adley now while he’d be motivated to do it.He made $700,00 this year and isn’t a free agent until 2029.
How about a 10 year deal beginning in 2023? at say 10 years $163 million.?
1- 5 million
2 - 7.5 million
3- 10 million
4- 12.5 million
5- 15.5 million
6- 17.5 million
7- 20 million
8 - 22.5 million
9- $25 million
10- 25 million
Certainly you can adjust the early years to make it more attractive if needed. Say pull $5 million off of each of the last three years and make it a bonus paid now.
He pitched a lot of innings in his age 19-22 seasons. He topped out at 199. Then in 2018, his 24 season he pitched 134. Since then he’s broken 100,(107)innings only once this season. He’s 28 years old and will be 29 in April. My guess is that he’s probably a relief pitcher here. He strikes out a ton of guys 9.4 vs a BB of 4.3. The K9 is over 1 per inning the last few seasons. Also the BB9 was 3.0 this season but 6.3 last year.
