I'm now predicting Harper will sign for $31/year for 10 years lol.

Yup. It's just the Phillies at this point, right? I'll never put anything past Boras but yeah...

Also don't hate SD getting in on Machado. Nice to see some of the non-big boys actually try, compared to, I dunno, teams that are constant fire sales because it's more lucrative to put out crap than to compete *cough*miami*cough*.

Boras is gonna use this as a baseline for Harper. Add in the fact the Nationals already offered Harper a 10-year $300 million contract and he turned it down, I wonder what he'll finally sign for?

The Yankees resign Aaron Hicks to a 7-year $70 million contract. I'm not a fan of it. Too many years.

Looks like the Yankees won't be getting Nolan Arenado next offseason. He resigned with Colorado for 8-years at $260 million with a full no-trade clause and he can opt-out after 3 seasons. With the Yankees passing on Manny Machado, it looks like they're betting the farm on Andujar.

Cheap contract, years are no big deal. Unlike Ellsbury.

True, the dollar amount isn't bad but he'll be 35 at the end of that contract. They bought out 1 more year of arbitration and the rest were free agent years. I would have gone, 4, 5 years tops.
