    It's the ones who threaten to leave who never do.

    It's better to burn out than to fade away.
    If it walks like collusion and talks like collusion, it's collusion.

    And Springer hasn't even signed yet.

    I don't believe Morton is worth 15M.

    There are clear pros and cons to Morton, who has managed to hold a late career surge since he signed with Houston. On the plus side, he was a 6 fWAR pitcher as recently as 2019 and he is battle-tested in the post-season. On the downside, he is 37 years old. I don't think a heavy salary for a single season is all that outrageous for him. But the key being that it is for one season.

    It's not outrageous, but I bet the Sox could do better getting two arms for that price, especially in this market.

    They could defintely get 2 arms for that price, but will those two arms even combine for 6 fWAR?

    I think you're expecting a little too much out of Morton.

    Morton averaged 5.8 innings per start in 2019. He pitched 6 innings in 21 of 33 starts (64%).

    Morton averaged 4.2 innings per start in 2020. He didn't pitch 6 innings in any start (0%).

    He had a career year in 2019 as a 36 year old. I don't think he'll be doing that ever again.

    A bit of Rays analytics mania involved there, perhaps.

    Or that his WHIP went from 1.08 to 1.39? Or that his k rate was his lowest since 2015? Or that his LOB% was his worst since 2016? Or that his ERA- was 111? Or that his barrel% was his highest since it had ever been tracked?

    But maybe it was because the Rays just went a little overboard with actually trying to win some regular season games? Maybe it had nothing to do with how Morton was actually pitching!

    Snell didn't pitch 6 innings in any game either. However, Morton's declining metrics leave me to believe he won't be a 6 fWAR pitcher this year.
