BIG GAME JAMES YO.

White Sox fans will only be able to live that one down with a World Series. Can you imagine if they lose a World Series to the Padres?

To be fair he was like 17 when that happened, sometimes long term vision works.

You could make that argument for every young player.

And the data is pretty clear: wait if you want to maximize your payout.


(And yes I know this becasue youíve mentioned it before. BGJ)

Iíd bet anything itís COVID. And uncertainty about future industry revenues.


Iíll make a prediction: COVID is almost over. The Vax is returning sterling results across multiple countries. (Iím biased as I got hit three weeks ago). By summer Americans will be 50% hit and itíll dissipate and MLB revenues will go back to trend level.


And when they do, Tatis will regret what he did.

A dollar today is worth more than dollar tomorrow.

Yeah, to truly max it out you need to go year to year. I get that logic.

Tatis was slated to make about $45 million over the next four years of team control.

He likely will make more now, depending on how that deal was structured.

Sure. But the dollar today is being discounted by COVID.

Iím really bullish on America and COVID and even MLB.

If Iím Sherman I go ďlongĒ on the industry.

I try to lock up in order:

1. Dozier
2. Keller
3. Salvy

Makes me think of when the Royals signed Brett, Wilson & Quisenberry to lifetime deals.

Stark: The 2021 spring training storylines survey has Padres, Blue Jays front and center

Our voters did.

So only four teams besides the Jays got more than two votes in the Most Improved Team balloting: White Sox 28, Angels 14, Royals 12, Yankees 6. And one voter refused to list any other team except the Blue Jays. His ballot looked like this: ďBlue Jays Ö Thatís it!Ē

The fun little group that got one vote apiece included Raisel Iglesias to the Angels, an actual Yankees-Red Sox deal (sending Adam Ottavino to Boston) and separate votes for both the Yankeesí and Piratesí end of the Jameson Taillon trade.

It was a different kind of contract though.

2021 - $3MM, 2022 - $3MM and then $5MM will be paid in 2023

So play 1 year and Athletics will pay out the $11MM over three years time.
