    As teams start to get thrifty in free agency this will be the next big way some teams will piss away tons of money. White made a great move, deals like this are great for the player, it will give them more serious consideration in spring training and a clear path to the show. Teams will start to lose big on some of these deals when "can't miss" guys start to miss. I suppose it's a smaller gamble than $100 mil on a 30 yr old guy but somehow it still seems riskier to me.

    Well boys....one of my white whales appeared on ebay recently. Not Moby Dick himself, but one of his underbosses. And it's kinda mis-listed. Can't say what it is, and there's a bit more time until the auction ends, but hooo-weee. Never seen one before. Wish me luck.

    The key to this particular deal seems to be that the big money is in the team options which they wont pay unless he's awesome. I think this one favors the team slightly since his main value is defense which should project consistently better than all or nothing power hitters. If he gets something like 0.5 Owar and 1.0Dwar per season that might already be worth 4mil these days, idk.


    On the flip side, "bats right + throws left" players are an ungodly crime against humanity. Throw garlic at this asshole!

    I'm seeing that in 2016 the Mariners payed 8mil to Adam Lind for a -0.3 WAR season at first base, and then the next year payed 5.5mil to Danny Valencia for a 1.1 WAR first base. 4mil to this guy seems cheap.



    Anything but Vogelbach at first next year, those D-cups are needed at DH . . . and in the locker room.

    Luckily for you I was digging through my junk earlier and found a bottle of wine, so I'm chilling out and kind of too stupid to shill bid the correct Alomar.



    Why did I stop drinking wine again? did it negatively affect my behavior??

    Whew. Thanks.

    I've noticed that with wine, if I drink more than a couple glasses, I tend to wake up in the middle of the night with that acid reflux feeling. I still like wine though. Getting old sucks.

    I had the same thought. I took a look through some newer listings, I have a few guesses.

    Yeah, I guess they could even nibble on the offcentered ones to improve their grade. . . T206 style.
