I'm an O's fan. We literally have ZERO chance in this division due to the Chris Davis contract and not being able to lose money on misses. Yanks and Sox have money to make bad contracts "go away."

Imagine watching your inept GM trade a clear multiple time All Star in Adam Jones to Baltimore for Erik Bedard, a sort of okay pitcher.

Bedard could never find his game or his health and Jones did indeed turn into a multi-time all star and one best young players in baseball.

Few fanbases can bang w/ the M's when it comes to misery.

5. "Kurt Suzuki, Nats 2/10mm"
In response to Reply # 0


          

You know, he could hit a little bit early in his career - at least for a catcher - so maybe he's not the best basis for any conclusions, but am I crazy for thinking there's been a number of catchers lately who became pretty good hitters, for the first time in their career, after the age of 30?

Suzuki from age 23-29: .253/.309/.375 (86 OPS+)
Suzuki from age 30-present: .267/.324/.405 (98 OPS+)

Discipline stays the same. Just a bit more average and some more power on top of that. And there's nothing extraordinary about that pattern, somebody becoming a better hitter as they get older until it stops when they get OLD. But that second part is a real issue for post-30 catchers. Yadier Molina warmed up to being a pretty good hitter too, though his trend started in a bit more traditional late-20s sweet spot.

Anyhow, this isn't an interesting observation really. It's just that if you told me a decade ago that a pretty good, smart team would be throwing a multi-year, eight-figure contract at a 35 year old Kurt Suzuki, I wouldn't have guessed it'd be to get his bat in the lineup.

I have no other opinions on this. It's probably a bad idea, unless it's not. Maybe Spencer Kieboom could just be good instead? I think that, given his name, that would be the best possible outcome for everybody. The homerun call is built in. He just has to... hit... homeruns.

2010 - Wilson Ramos (Minnesota) traded to Washington as their catcher of the future

2011 - Derek Norris (Washington), former catcher of future, traded to Oakland

2012 - Kurt Suzuki (Oakland) traded to Washington, so Norris can start

2013 - Kurt Suzuki traded back to Oakland, so Ramos can start

2014 - Suzuki signs with Minnesota, who drafted Ramos; Norris makes All-Star team in final season with A's

2016 - Norris traded to Washington, and is then cut after Matt Wieters is signed; Ramos makes All-Star team in final season with Nats

2017 - Ramos and Norris sign with Tampa Bay

2018 - Suzuki signs with Washington

Probably my favorite or second favorite player of all time.

I knew it was coming but it still hurts. Especially knowing he should have a ring or two

if, though, this clears salary for Machado and we can move for a dependable catcher, it'll be OK.

This being the Mets, I have no faith of that.

At least we got rid of Jay Bruce?

He almost makes Stras look durable. Rizzo always pushing buttons though.

I like it, assuming Keuchel doesn't sign for like 4/80 and Eovaldi 4/70 or something in that range.

They need another arm, but I think on paper they're about as good as last year if everybody's healthy and on paper they were a 90 win team last year.

bat has some nice pop, but maybe a defensive liability. allowed 53 stls and only caught 6.

I think the most important thing to Boras is that Harper can claim to be the highest paid player in the game for a moment in time. Highest AAV contract at the moment is Greinke making $34.4 a year over 6 years. So I think that's the tipping point for negotiations.
