17.5 or 17.9?


Kershaw signs 3 year 93m with possibility of incentives.


Good idea on the thread.

Looking it up I find that it is 17.4 million.

Looking at the schedule of events, how MLB must love tormenting us by making us wait until November 20th to learn who has won the Designated Hitter of the Year Award. I tried to locate a list of all the past winners, but there doesn't seem to be one because the name of the award has been unstable. It isn't the Designated Hitter of the Year award any longer, it is now the Edgar Martinez Award, so named after Edgar had won what was being called Outstanding Designated Hitter of the Year five times. (Since then, David Ortiz has won the Edgar Martinez award eight times yet it remains named for Martinez.)

Way back when, Orlando Cepeda won the first ever Designated Hitter of the Year Award, which I am assuming has some continuity with the Outstanding Designated Hitter award through the Edgar Martinez award.

Nelson Cruz won for the 2017 season and I think he is the only viable candidate to win it for 2018.

Teams had until 5 p.m. ET today to extend their prospective free agents a qualifying offer -- a one-year contract worth $17.9 million (the amount is the mean salary of MLB's 125 highest-paid players). Seven players received a qualifying offer, and they have 10 days to accept or reject it. That deadline is Nov. 12, at 5 p.m. ET.

Rick: My health. I came to Casablanca for the waters.

Captain Renault: The waters? What waters? We're in the desert.

Rick: I was misinformed.

Since the new QO rules came into effect six seasons ago, there have been 73 offers made, and only five of them have been accepted.

Do you think QO offers are unfair to players that have reached the amount of years for free agency?

The MLBPA approved it in 2012, and again in 2016, so the players apparently don't think it is too unfair. It was part of the negotiations of the last two basic agreements, so maybe they had agreed to that in exchange for something that they valued more.

Not having any inside information on the thinking of the current GM's, how damaging the compensation pick is to the chances of the free agent getting a fat payday, isn't known. Sometimes it backfires on the player completely, like Mike Moustakas last year. He turned down the Royals' QO because he thought Steve Boros was going to get him a big long term deal. No one was interested and Mike wound up signing a one year, 5.5 million dollar deal to go back to KC.

It could be helpful to Bryce Harper. His inconsistency had made his future harder to predict and clubs might not be motivated to go as high as they would following a banner Harper year. If he takes the QO from the Nationals, has a huge 2109, then he will hit the free agent market as a 27 year old with much improved offers.

I think the players are doing just fine.

Lets see what players get overpaid this offseason like Harper and non-hustling Machado.
