Mike Moustakas signs....

Postby davell » Fri Mar 09, 2018 3:04 am



I mean.....Wow.

Bang up job by Boras on this one.

I think there were some guys thinking he'd get 100 mill. At any rate, this is shameful.

Message to players with wildly inconsistent careers: you might want to consider those team-friendly deals if they're offered.

What up, Addy?

I don’t think he’s all that great but seems like a deal the Cardinals should’ve done

On one hand, that is not a good omen for the players and actually moving towards a better system for paying talent/avoiding a labor stoppage down the line. On the other hand, Mike Moustakas is not very good(8.3 combined fWAR the last 5 years, 3 years under 1.3 fWAR) and by at least some accounts is a bit of a tool, so I'm sure not sad that he in particular got the squeeze.

Or the Yankees.

Makes the Mets look like they really overpaid for Frazier.
