NFT: Yankees Chat: Offered 7 Years 160 Mil to Darvish

DaddyM89 : 1/11/2018 7:27 pm
"Michael Kay is reporting the #Yankees offered Yu Darvish a contract around seven years and $160 million. But when Darvish didn't accept within 48 hours, they pulled the deal."

Wow interesting if true, have to think they'd have to have a deal in place for ellsbury, gardner, or robertson if they were gonna go that route to stay under the luxury tax. Also Michael Kay, so have to take with a grain of salt...
I don't believe that...going 7 years for a 31 yo pitcher?

After that WS clutch performance?

Fool!
The Yanks are currently THE odds on favorite to win the World Series  
Stan in LA : 1/11/2018 7:34 pm : link
So I guess they are going for it.
Yanks overall favorite - ( New Window )
I guess after Judge won the MVP,

they felt they need to go all in in the FA market.
I donít buy that  
UConn4523 : 1/11/2018 7:36 pm : link
the years are ridiculous, I can see 4 years with a 5th year option by not 7 years. Cashman alluded to being able to create room if need be but wasnít specific.

Either way hard pass, Darvish isnít a big game pitcher and we have enough in the pipeline to get us regular season wins.

What's going on with him? He was supposed to be the next Jon Van Benschoten.

Doesn't seem like a move they would be making right now. Between his age, his performance in the WS and their money situation. And I get the whole tactic but if they liked him that much and they really wanted him on the team on those terms, they wouldn't give him a 2 day deadline to sign.
Kay must be a shill for

Exactly what I thought. Sounds like some shit planted by an agent to grease the skids during a slow market.

Why the flock would the Yankees ever give him 7 years? 4 years, OK, 5 years...ehhh, maybe
Makes me laugh

This guy couldnít pitch two innings in the WS (two times) and here he is about to be super wealthy. Amazing.
don't see any reference to this on RAB -  
Del Shofner : 1/12/2018 12:38 am : link
7 years is implausible for sure.
Want  
Mike Graves : 1/12/2018 7:47 am : link
No part of this guy. Always hurt and shit the bed when it matters stay away.
not buying it. 7 yrs and HUGE $$ for a guy who shit himself in the WS  
Victor in CT : 1/12/2018 9:23 am : link
and is 31 to boot? Ellsbury contract redux. Makes no sense from a baseball standpint, none from a payroll tax standpoint. If it was offered, I would think it was pre-Stanton. But again, I'm not buying, and Kay is a dooshbag.
All part of the poker game between the Pirates and Yankees...

Pirates pretending things are serious with Houston, Yankees pretending things are serious with Darvish.
Agree with the masses -  
section125 : 1/12/2018 9:40 am : link
7 years is too long - no way Cash does that. 4 years/$85 to $90 mill. But it necessitates Ells, Gardner and/or Robertson being traded. And Ells is not enough alone as the Yanks will be eating at least 75% of that contract.

Seems like a reasonable way to evaluate a guy.

He's already super wealthy.
It's the time of year where you can't believe any rumors

so much misinformation out there now from teams and agents.
Teams

In all sports are just idiots with money and FA players this guy finished 10-12 with two teams and is being offered 160 mil you canít find two or three minor leaguers that can get you 10 wins?

So true.

I saw where Castro has asked the Marlins to trade him. Evidently, he doesn't relish living through another rebuild, only to be traded when the team is on the verge of a championship run.

That's a pretty strong slap at Kay by Darvish, and honorable. It's in YDs interest for people to THINK that the Yankees are interested and he still slapped it down. Kay is a dooshbag.
