Boras seeking 200M

:lol: :lol: :lol:

https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2017/11/ ... price.html

By Steve Adams | November 8, 2017 at 6:24pm CDT

Teams that have spoken to agent Scott Boras about new client J.D. Martinez have come away with the impression that Boras and Martinez are seeking a deal in the vicinity of $200MM in total guarantees, tweets ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick. Martinez hired Boras as his new representative just days before the free-agent period began.

It’s a jarring number to see associated with the 30-year-old Martinez, though he certainly helped his case with an otherworldly season at the plate. Though Martinez missed the first five-plus weeks of the season due to a ligament injury in his foot, he nonetheless swatted 45 home runs in a career year at the plate. On the whole, Martinez slashed a ridiculous .303/.376/.690 with a career-high 10.8 percent walk rate through 489 plate appearances between the Tigers and D-backs.

That thread says MOVES. So nothing happened yet, it's just news.

He’s going to be overpaid but not that overpaid.

I'd say 4/85 is more realistic.

Osiel Rodriguez was up to 96 at a showcase in the Dominican.

Supposedly he’s a 15 yr old Cuban kid so that would put him around 18. Sign him up!

Getting closer. The good thing about @CharlsMeow is he can walk through the GM meeting undetected because no one suspects a cat is on Twitter #Cubs

Update on SP Alex Cobb: I've been told Cobb's agent has initially asked for a 5 year deal. The #Cubs are steadfast at 4 years. Confident a deal will be worked out at 4. Hearing 4/56M is where the #Cubs are currently at. #HotStove

If they are accurate on Arrieta, resign him.

Yeah, the DH guy thought $100M. I have to believe he will get much more than that......

I really like Tyler Chatwood. He’s another guy I think will greatly benefit from leaving Coors Field.

Are they going to add like $400M in payroll this winter? No way they can afford Stanton and Arrieta.

If Jake signs with STL, I wonder if MANY Cubs fans would turn on him like they did Fowler.

I cant think of a more beloved Ex-Cub than Fowler.

:lol: Not universally loved. I think Hockey Gay said he hated him and called him a traitor for signing with the Cardinals.

Huh? You must associate yourself with some really dumb Cubs fans. The consensus from all the Cubs fans I know is that they are appreciative of Fowler for his time with the Cubs and they understand that he took the best deal out there. The Cubs did not offer anywhere near the money the Cards gave him. There are absolutely no hard feelings at all with Fowler.

Heard the Twins are interested in Arrieta. Target Field would probably be a great place for him to pitch.

Oh, and fuck Dexter Fowler. If you don't hate him already then you're a beta Cubs fan. I don't know what to tell you.

The Mariners traded for 1B Ryon Healy from the Athletics in exchange for RHP Emilio Pagan and Inf Alexander Campos.

We have our first trade of the off season and it’s between two middling division rivals. Jerry Dipoto and Billy Beane just can’t get out of their own way. The next trade is always the one that will be a franchise changer. Back to the drawing board because this one ain’t it boys.
