    2020 Election Thoughts

    I totally agree. Politically, whether Hunter is a useless jackass or not is totally irrelevant except for the fact that it reflects positively on Joe Biden’s character for trying to be there as a father to a clearly troubled son. It was stupid to try to exploit those troubles to sink the guy.

    Arozaeena released without charges...

    He would fit well in the WSox outfield. Too bad the Rays don't make stupid trades.

    You said no so I did not read what else you wrote; skipped over it. I so wish there was an ignore function for mods. I'd last on here a lot longer.

    The last time he pitched over 120 innings was 2016. I will guarantee he won't pitch 120 innings in MLB next year. We'll just agree to disagree.If I was his financial advisor I'd say take the money and run. Maybe his guru or spirit guide would suggest your plan. I'd even be willing to bet $4 for me every inning under 120 innings and $5 for you every inning over 120 if a full season is played.

    Hmm. I'll go with eight. In that case he'd have to sign at 6/160+ to get into back that range presuming he gets something like 21.5 mil in arb. I guess he's got his work cut out for him.

    If you Google you’ll see lots of articles about how he turned down an offer “well north of $200mil”. Tough to say how many years, but I’m guessing 7?

    There is no question that his son has issues. Drug issues, marital issues and potentially shady business dealings. But like Biden, if my son had issues, I’d just say I love him and am proud of him. Thinking anything more about Hunter Biden or the crap Trump tried pulling just seems like a waste of time. I thought Hunter or Joe’s perceived mental acuity deficiencies would sink him at the polls and he would lose but that did not happen. People looked past the crap Trump was peddling and sent Biden to the office, no matter what the incumbent says about Biden outperforming Obama in swing states.

    What was the offer? If he returns to career norms next year, it would be as if 2020 never happened when he hits FA IMO. I mean we're talking about 34 games here.

    Carlos Rodon's wife is what is wrong with professional sports. Who cares what some over pampered wife thinks on social media? Your husband sucks and will be lucky to get an MLB offer at this point. Please pipe down.

    I dont know where you get the idea a pitcher cant throw a full season the year following their recovery from TJS. Happens all the time. 2020 he came off the surgery, by '21 he'll have an extra ten months after recovery. Tommy John himself threw 200+ innings the first season back from surgery. Wainright started 32 games in first season back. Paul Byrd came back pitched over 200 innings and led the league in quality starts. Alex Cobb pitched 174 innings, Corbin came back midseason and made 16 starts to finish. Tim Hudson came back, threw 228 innings in 34 starts with the best season he had in years. None of those guys had the extra ten healthy months Rodon will have by start of next season. No reason he shouldn't be ready for a full workload if he's healthy. Obviously if he isn't offered a starting role then he can't take it either way.but if he got an offer to start for 1.5 million vs an offer to relieve at three million, it would make sense to take the starter role when the potential future earning is vastly higher with the lower immediate pay, particularly if he believes his chance at reestablishing himself is greater as a starter, which he clearly does.

    Bryant has to be kicking himself for turning down that offer a few years back.

    Bryant for one year at 20ish mil is not worth much in the trade market but he's worth more than nothing.

    I'm having trouble coming up with an instance where a player tanked to that degree going into his final arb year with a relatively high arb salary. There is the case of Bret Lawrie, who made 4.2 million in '16 then settled with Sox at 3.5. But his 2016 numbers were much closer to his career norms than Mazara.

    Yup. They just set up an Ahsoka-led spinoff with Thrawn as the bad guy, trying to find Ezra, likely with a side of Sabine. It was slow to begin with, but once Vader and Sidious got into the movie, it hit an amazing stride.

    But this is something entirely different which is why many are projecting a much higher number of non-tenders than usual. All the financial reports about teams losing a combined $3B is telling possible non-tenders to take less or be non tendered and take your chances on an over-saturated market. I'd guess plenty of non-tender candidates are being offered less than their projected figures right now and if not accepted then it's adios.

    Sox/Pederson speculation via CSN

    I think we have to seriously consider that COVID could affect the rest of his career. We have no idea how bad it was maybe he or his Doctors don't know that either yet. I mean ,we think it wasn't that bad. After all he didn't miss too much time but maybe his stamina never returned or there are lasting affects to his cardiovascular system. :Nearly one-fourth of those hospitalized with COVID-19 have been diagnosed with cardiovascular complications, which have been shown to contribute to roughly 40% of all COVID-19-related deaths. But two recent studies suggest heart damage among those infected may be more widespread. In JAMA Cardiology, an analysis of autopsies done on 39 COVID-19 patients identified infections in the hearts of patients who had not been diagnosed with cardiovascular issues while they were ill. Another JAMA Cardiology study used cardiac MRIs on 100 people who had recovered from COVID-19 within the past two to three months. Researchers found abnormalities in the hearts of 78% recovered patients and "ongoing myocardial inflammation" in 60%. The same study found high levels of the blood enzyme troponin, an indicator of heart damage, in 76% of patients tested, although heart function appeared to be generally preserved. Most patients in the study had not required hospitalization." https://www.heart.org/en/news/2020/09/03/what-covid-19-is-doing-to-the-heart-even-after-recovery

    I can't think of a guy who settled for significantly less money than projected. I could be wrong but I believe that could hurt the arbitration market for other players?

    Nothing that they think or want to do is unrealistic. Having success doing it that way is another story. His career has been spiraling downward and if he isn't careful he could be out of baseball in a couple years.Take the best offer and pitch. Re-establish that you can pitch without injury in any capacity. If he gets a few million that goes a long way if he plans his financial future carefully in the event of more injuries. Blind faith in your abilities mean nothing if you can't show it. He's still coming off TJ surgery , he can't pitch a full starters load anyway. Accept reality in the face of adversity. If he believes so much in himself, sign a one year contract just to show you can still pitch effectively which means throw strikes and stay healthy in any roll. If he can't do that he won't have a future.

    They can technically agree to less money. The team just needs to offer 80% of the previous year's salary if it goes to an arbitration hearing.

    Kris Bryant

    Technically a player can get a 20% decrease through arbitration. As for Bryant, not getting a raise seems about right given how bad he was last year.
