if we lose out on Stroman, I think we should target Jon Gray...he'd likely cost the draft pick, but I feel like he could replace Stroman pretty well...I think he'd end up being even cheaper than Stroman tooStroman probably gonna get that $25 a year. If not from us than from someone else. Guess we can use that money for Bryant or whoever we settle on.
I'm not really sure how it works though...the Rockies will likely offer Story and Gray the QO....if both of them reject, do they get picks from both teams? is one worth more than the other? if Story signs somewhere first, does Gray's compensation get moved down?Giving up draft picks to save some money. Just like old times.
he's much better than his numbers suggest...once he leaves Colorado, he could be a really good pitcher...a smart team would want to go after him...it just sucks for us because we're the only team that would have to give up a 1st round pick to sign himJon Gray is a #4. Just like Walker, Carrasco and McGill.
The picks you receive as compensation for losing a QO are based on whether you receive revenue sharing or not and how much the player signs for. The Rockies receive revenue sharing so the picks depend on how much Story and Gray sign for. If they sign for > $50 million, they get a pick after the 1st round. If they sign for less than $50 million, the pick is after the 2nd round.I'm not really sure how it works though...the Rockies will likely offer Story and Gray the QO....if both of them reject, do they get picks from both teams? is one worth more than the other? if Story signs somewhere first, does Gray's compensation get moved down?
You may or may not agree with Mr. Ramseythe random kid is right...as much as I'd like to keep Stroman, he's not worth over $25 mil a season...
not to mention the wheeler dealthis is a perfect example of how badly we squandered the "5 aces" era of Mets baseball. injuries will happen, and you always plan for that, but for fuck sake, there was a time we were paying those dudes a Stroman salary collectively and we didn't fuckin win. imagine SteveCo with the "5 aces?" we'd probably sign every big bat known to man and just rebuild pitching bc fuck paying pitchers $30 m
I want Stroman too, but if the bidding for Stroman gets to 7 years $200 mil, should we still go after him or pivot to another pitcher? and in terms of available free agent pitchers, Gray seems like the most bang for your buckBenny,
Your plan is replacing a Solid #3, potential #2 is by giving up a first round pick, and having to pay potentially the same amount of $$ for a decent if not Spectacular #4 who COULD POTENTIALLY MAYBE become a decent #3?
and I like Gray.. but you sign Stroman every day and 2x on Sunday over Gray
