LMAO.  When did that Grandal signing happen, 2012? 

$73 million is a far cry from $250 million.  Time to start playing with the big boys if you want to win like the big boys.

Jesus. This franchise is just so depressing 

Yes, very difficult to not have this opinion. 

The Angels have an owner who “loves” Anthony Rendon, so he will spend whatever necessary to attain that player. Our guy simply loves money, so he will do whatever necessary to save it all.

Good god. So the implication is if they had signed Manny they couldn’t have signed anyone else for the decade I guess.

Apparently we plan to use a little here and a little there so we can find slightly below league average payrolls.

I try not to be delusional as I keep staying a fan of this team.   It's been great for my health.

There had been exactly 2 contracts over $250M in the history of baseball 10 months ago. Still as of right now, only 10 contracts over $210M in the history of the game. 

Sometimes context is important.

Slightly below?  It’s embarrassing how low it looks to be.

If the goal was to maximize profit, they did a terrible job allocating money last year.

Other than McCann and Nova's second half, it was one of the most ineffective "spending sprees" in MLB history.

The chances of getting Keuchel/Bumgarner/Ryu shrinking by the minute.

Man fuck this offseason.

I hope you like Kuechel because that’s going to be our big starting pitching addition assuming we put our Boras boycott to rest!

Trying to sign Luis Robert to a minimal contract so they don't have to spend more down the road on him

I wouldn’t be surprised if Keuchel is too rich for their blood.

That's a fool's errand, but good luck anyways.

At this point, I hope they do get him. Get some type of SP at this point. Every day less and less options are available.

They aren’t even going to spend that $250 million total of Machado money from last year on multiple players for another year or more, according to Hahn.

This franchise really does expect all prospects to hit their ceilings and that will be enough. Depth be damned.

If that was the case, we wouldn't have traded for Mazara with five outfielders piled up in our system from Winston-Salem through Charlotte.

Did you guys seriously think the Sox were going to sign Rendon? I never thought that was even a remote possibility.

Same. They were never moving Moncada again.

It was a very good use of resources with Wheeler not an option. The fact the Sox don’t think so is the problem

I don’t disagree, but they put all their eggs into the Wheeler basket and had zero backup plan.  Now with our affordable 1 win RF and most SP options off the board, it’s going to be hard to sport an even respectable payroll.

Nope.

Zero %.  Never even bothered to look at that thread until today when a signing seemed imminent.

Thought he was bound for Texas.
