What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
The deal is 5/75
I really thought he'd be a Phillie, what does this mean for Hamilton's market?
It doesn't mean anything. $15M AAV for Upton is about right. Hamilton will still get between $22M and $25M AAV from somewhere. It just depends on how many years the team is willing to commit.
Not a great hitter's ballpark. So where does this leave Bourn?
BJ could produce 4 WAR next season if he regressed by .5 WAR in years 3,4 and 5 he should produce 17 WAR @ 75M that's roughly 4.4M per WAR. Seems like a value sign by Atlanta. This signing also leaves only Bourn and Hamilton as viable CF FA's on the market. I think this signing hurts Bourn's $ chances but improves Hamilton's by more clearly defining a starting point.
One less power bat, speed, OF'r available...Hambone chances to return to Rangers seems more likely!
This now opens the door for Justn Upton to go to Tampa.Why would a Star player want to play for ANY Fla. Team?
I hope so then that opens the door for Price to RBIA.
