This goes beyond just value, though. He was THE guy to start this whole rebuild and probably the best pitching prospect ever. He is maybe the most marketable pitcher and just won World Series MVP. Plus, with deferrals the net present value is fine.

Also after how well the Scherzer deal turned out, why bother questioning the Nats and their weird long term pitcher deferral deals?

He also just put together one of the best Octobers ever. Nobody has ever gone 5-0 in the postseason before. He's as important to the Nationals as Ovechkin is to the Capitals. They'd piss off the entire city if he went somewhere else.

I am not arguing that Corbin is better, but the fact that I don't think anyone would be surprised at any sort of ranking for the Nats big three next season or for the next few.

Angels using their 2019 1st rd pick(15th overall selection) just to unload the $12.7M that Cozart was set to make. That's a pretty steep price and not something you do unless you already know you got some big fish FA's you are about to lure in

I think this was a bad signing.

Technically they can afford anything I suppose. The Yankees can afford anything in the modern sports world.

Need to get one in this window so no issues with this contract because 1) Its not my money and the yankees could afford a 400 million payroll and 2) There will be a new CBA (and possibly 2) during this contract and I doubt they make the luxury tax *more* restrictive.

Twins are totally going to get boxed out on MadBum now too since the Dodgers are going to double his reasonable salary. Baseball is dumb.

I could give a shit where Bumgarner goes, aside form the Dodgers.

I can't handle that.

taking a bad contract for a first round pick was a clutch move on our part, though.

COULDN'T give a shit, not COULD give a shit. Could means you have shits to give, couldn't means you're out of shits. Sorry to be the motherfucker, but that shit drives me up the wall.

I like this All-MLB team thing. I always wondered why it was the only one of the big four North American leagues without something like that at the end of the year.

It might be coincidence, but the Red Sox always seem to time these spending boom years perfectly.
