Franco for MVP this year. I can see him competing for a batting title and going for 35 homers plus.
Is there opt

outs? I thought the Braves Acuna deal was good and of course there is risk since Franco is still 20, but that seems like a massively below market deal.

Isn't that what they said about Arozarena?

guarantee is 11 years for $185, with a 12th year option that would hit the $223 figure from before.

talking about bringing Matz back..

I'm fine if it's as the 4th/5th starter.

FA or Trade
FA or Trade (Stro is minimum viable 3rd starter, IMO)
Good deal for both sides

Franco now set for 10 generations and the Rays look like they’ll finally keep a cornerstone piece around for a long long time. Would suck if he got injured, but worth the risk of buying out 5 cheap years
So they’ll use him

For 4 years and flip him for a new group of top 20 rated players .
Mets interested in

Who would possibly trade for a pitcher with so many available?

Even the Mets cant be that dumb with their lack of prospects.
Just read BA's scouting report on Volpe, had to find a tissue paper

to wipe the drool off. This kid was created to impact a baseball, damn. Dominguez's tools seem to have been downgraded, especially his speed given how stocky he's become. Apparently his arm was overplayed too.

BA seems higher on Hayden Wesneski than others. Oswaldo Cabrera is now a keeper as well.

baseball is really broken. If the union does what they should, these kids are going to be wildly underpaid for their careers.

Get these kids paid while they are in their primes.
