Mega deals for starters don’t have a great track record.

This!

These deals for 30-32 year old pitchers just dont fit us. They never work out. We should not be sacrificing later to win this year. This isn't our year to make a push.

the only one we ever missed out on was Scherzer's contract 7/$210 million. That off season it seemed that we were not hurting for pitching that year but having a local kid back..... missed opportunity.

Next year with Reyes at full speed our minor league pitching maturing, I think combining that with us sign/spending some money for offense, we will be competitive again.

I dont think either Arrieta or Darvish is looking at a "mega deal."

I think 5 years is probably what they'll get, maybe 6 with an option, and an opt out somewhere in there. Less than a Jon Lester deal.

It's simple.

Wainwright is a franchise icon. With his production. The last 2 years, really 3, he his production hasn't been that good.

Cardinals FO is perfectly fine with letting him and Yadi right into the sunset, like they would've if the Angels weren't stupid.

Understatement of the century. He's been awful. Mike Leake was a better option. Loyal to a fault.

I am not disagreeing.

This can be seen from other teams as well.

Jeter and the Yankees, David Wright and the Mets, Todd Helton and the Rockies.

thats the problem. That’s not a “reasonable” contract. A team guarantees an aging player in your prime money into their mid 30’s. What pitcher was in their prime in their mid-30’s? And if somehow they have a couple of good years, they can move on to a better contract.

Teams are guaranteeing everything and giving them a no trade clause. There is no cost to the player if it goes bad, only to the team.

Now, this only applies to these 30+ year old players that are wanting long term deals. <30 are still making bank.

Cubs sign Yu Darvish to 6/150 million

Miles 03:26 PM 02-10-2018
So much for suspecting he may get something more reasonable due to the market. Fuck that.

For Darvish to reach $150M he would have to earn multiple Cy Young awards. I would say $21M/yr for Darvish when guys like Samardzija are getting 18 is pretty reasonable.

If he does earn that $24M incentive then you really cant argue he wasnt worth the money.

Draftkings Live originally reported 6/150. My bad.

6/126 actually seems like a decent deal but sounds like they gave an opt out after just 2 seasons.

Dont see him exercising that opt out unless the Dodgers or Yankees become players for him again, since those teams were his first choice but they didnt want to exceed the luxury cap. I can't imagine him making more money over the next 4 years with a new deal unless he goes ape shit, which I wont complain about.
