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.
And another example.

Why not give him 3 years of good money? Wacha cant pitch to teams a 3rd time. Waino is a big ? and hope success in Japan translates to MLB?


The @Cardinals shouldn’t give Arrieta a lot of years, but you give him a lot of money. The Cardinals have a lot of cash. Have you looked at the starting staff? Do you not think Arrieta would help?

Arrieta turned down 4/110 from the Cubs. Boras is not going to let him sign for 3 years because he'll likely lose out on several million over the remainder of his career.

Apparently before the Cubs signed Darvish, they went to Arrieta with the same offer and he turned it down. So good luck getting him to sign a 3 year deal.

Free-agent right-hander Bud Norris in agreement with #STLCards, pending a physical, sources tell The Athletic. Excelled in first half with #Angels last season, but performance suffered after right knee inflammation twice forced him to DL.

Yes, about 8 years ago. The dude has a career ERA+ of 89. Sounds like a great signing! :-)

Didn’t realize he was still in the league. Apparently switched to a relief role last year.

3M plus significant incentives for a guy I was expecting might have been signed to a minor league deal/invite.

im assuming he is an additional long relief guy to backstop Wacha and Waino when they leave early.

You guys signed Bud Norris? Why not Jason Vargas?

Wish you guys would sign Hosmer or Moose or both. Would give me a reason to follow the Cards.

The Cardinals are throwing numbers at the bullpen, which isn't a bad plan given the volatility of relief pitchers. Norris was actually pretty good for the Angels last year before he got hurt. Looks like he's relying more on the cutter, and his fastball is average enough.
