Contract extension for Yermin?

Recommended Posts

Any idea if the Sox have started negotiating a long term deal with Mercedes to buy out a couple years of free agency?    I’d love to see him retire in a White Sox jersey but I fear we won’t be able to keep him past arbitration years unless we get something done soon.

The closest hitter we’ve had to this caliber in my lifetime is Jose Abreu.   It would be nice to have Yermin around after Jose retires to give Trout some competition for MVP on a yearly basis.

They gamed his service time so hard by keeping him down in 2019 and 2020. I'm starting to think they knew what they had in Yermin, but nobody would bat an eye at keeping him down, so they did. Hahn did Yermin dirty. 

If they didn't game him, I'd be all in favor of an extension.

He cleary isn't 10, don't be silly. You can't purchase the strong beverages he has consumed in sin city at that age.

Well he clearly has to be, otherwise Lee, Maggs, Belle, and Thomas would also be on that list. 
 

so, You sir, stop being silly.  He is 10

Age is much less of a factor for a DH.  Nelson Cruz hit bombs into his late 30's.  Mercedes Benz have been known to last longer than American made vehicles.

He will see an excess of high fastballs. So far he had good at bats.

Where have I seen this before?

With Avi becoming one of the best hitters in all of baseball, should we make the move now to secure him long term? I think we could get a good discount based upon his performance of the last several years. Perhaps something like 6 years / $72 million? $12 million a year could still be a steal for someone capable of winning a triple crown and he's still young enough to be an integral part of our team when the prospects mature. I know some may say I sound crazy......but you have to roll the dice sometimes and this may be a good time to gamble.

Absolutely sincere.   I can’t believe people continue to under estimate the abilities of Avi.   He came up young and struggled early but continues to get better.   He will win multiple MVP awards before he retires and certainly be enshrined in Cooperstown.   People lament the trading of Tatis Jr. but letting Avi walk for nothing will be viewed as a much larger mistake in the long term.

Y'all just cursed Yermin.

Strong beverages and substances from sin city cloud the memory and judgement.

Hits will continue to flow from the Yurinator. He's no Gates Brown but I think he will adjust.
