Semien to Rangers, 7 for $175

Recommended Posts

He's going to be declining by the time that team gets good again.

$25M AAV for 7 years isn’t terrible if he can still play at a high level at the back end.  Big if though.

He did not. Another L

Yep, I'll take the L on that one. 

I guess Semien wanted the years.

7 Years is insane for Marcus. This has nothing to do with shopping at the dollar tree for FA. I wonder what happens with Story now?

Yeah but still.

Assuming we were never going to get into a serious bidding war for Siemian at the number of years noted here, then why would the Philly trade depend on it?

True.

Really MEH feeling not going anywhere close to that for Semien. Good player but just don’t think the Sox needed him at all

Assuming he stays at 2B... he is a hall of famer if he earns this contract.

He was going to get paid, but his cost just wasn’t something I wanted the Sox to pay with their needs.  Not upset about the lack of pursuit myself.

We don’t want this deal. 

Good players cost money. The money will keep rising for good players.

For me it's not the money, the AAV is just fine, but the years.

True but this is where baseball is headed. We will never be in on any youngish true quality players if we won't step in the water. Thus my fear is we spend big on closers and other older players on the decline.

I can understand that. Especially with Jerry still around.

It wouldn't surprise me at all if the Rangers signed another SS.

It's unclear why JR would make truly transformative investments in the team when he can take the money to his grave instead.

$25M per isn’t bad, and I’m surprised it wasn’t higher.  But I’m cool letting another team pay him that for 7 years.

Lol true. You'd think if your that old and have plenty on $$$. You'd say "fuck it" and go all in. Especially for one of the most talented teams in the league.
