re: Pablo "Kung Fu Panda" Sandoval signs $100 million dollar deal with Boston - The Seaward
Seager wasn't a true free agent though. So it isn't an apples to apples comparison. The Mariners already had him under contract at highly discounted rate for some of those years, that's why he got less. Same reason Trout only got $150 million....

re: Pablo "Kung Fu Panda" Sandoval signs $100 million dollar deal with Boston - The Seaward
[quote] I hope they arent breaking the bank based off of last season's 3 win season. If they actually look at the full body of work based on WAR, they can see what an unpredictable player they are getting. If the guy is getting paid off last season and next year projections, well, that's a pretty na...

re: Pablo "Kung Fu Panda" Sandoval signs $100 million dollar deal with Boston - The Seaward
1 WAR goes for around $7 million on average in the free agent market. Give or take a little bit. Pablo is coming off a 3 win season. Steamer projects him for 3.6 WAR next year. 7x3 is $21 million. 7x3.6 is $25 million. ...

[quote]But I also, probably unfairly, expect panda to fall apart. [/quote] That's a valid concern, but he is only 28 and I've always heard he is an athletic guy for his size. By year 5, I'm sure both of these contracts will be albatrosses for the Sox, but that is how pretty much all long ter...

re: Pablo "Kung Fu Panda" Sandoval signs $100 million dollar deal with Boston - The Seaward
Neither of these contracts look that bad to me. This will be a stacked lineup especially if Betts and Bogarets take leaps, and I'm sure they aren't done making moves. The people running the Red Sox are very smart. Not saying these deals are guarenteed to work out, but they know what they are doin...

re: Source: Hanley to Red Sox - The Seaward
Hanley is 31. Seems like a pretty good deal for the Sox. I expected him to get more. I guess he will play third....

re: Is Andruw Jones a HOF'er? - The Seaward
I think he won't get in, but you could make a case for him. He was a really good hitter and probably the best defender in the game for a stretch. Batting average and RBIs are terrible ways to evaluate players' values. But a good bit of hall voters don't seem to realize that....

re: Russell Martin to Toronto..5 yrs/$82M - The Seaward
He is a great defensive catcher and he gets on base. I agree the last two years of this deal will likely be a disaster. Toronto better hope he provides surplus value in the early years especially while Bautista and Encarnicion are still beasts....

re: Russell Martin to Toronto..5 yrs/$82M - The Seaward
I think it probably is a slight overpay, but judging Russell Martin's value solely on his batting average would be like saying Chris Paul is overpaid because of his number of blocked shots per game. ...
