It was a little tongue-in-cheek because of the early reports that the Cubs were more interested in Arenado than Harper.

I assumed that he wasn't Boras client, and it looks like he dumped him in 2015. Many Cubs fans think this gives us hope of extending Bryant, but is there any history of Boras arbitration-level guys extending instead of hitting free agency?


Strasburg, but if I remember correctly, it includes opt-outs that make the extension more of an arbitration buyout and not much else (other than a security blanket if injury/decline hit hard).

Yes. Strasburg leaps to mind, but I think there's been one or two other lower profile guys.

He's a replacement level player due to make 3.4 mil on a team going nowhere.

That's basically nothing and he was worth over 2 fWAR in 2017 (and a 4.3 bWAR in 2016). Maybe they tried trading him and found no takers, idk. Especially shocking considering they gave up Luis Castillo for him.

deGrom 5 year extension (he was controlled for 2 years yet including this year). He was already older, think this locks him up through age 35/36 season.

deGrom didn't, sure, but if this is the new trend, we aren't going to see a ton of big name FA's most years

We rarely see many big name FAs already

The Giants traded for LHRP Williams Jerez, who has options but could be quickly added should they trade one of Smith or Watson. Seems likely one of those guys does get dealt, maybe sooner rather than later, and I’d imagine the Cubs would be interested

Even if he got hurt.

Time to strike on a Hendricks extension?


The number of very good pitchers who hit arbitration and don't end up making 40+ million is...substantial. Pitching is fleeting, take the money.


So if Nola is the benchmark, what's a Hendricks extension look like?

$3M signing bonus, $9M in '20, $12 M in '21, $12 M in '22, $15M option in '23 with a $4M buyout?


I was pretty damn close.

Great news. Surprising too, especially because Tatis was the guy with the most reasonable argument for holding him down. He's yet to even play at AAA.
