Thread: Berries signs 7 year extension with Blue Jays

    Berries signs 7 year extension with Blue Jays

    Something is up here. Berrios is at least a 2. He’s only a year away from FA and was staring at a Corbin deal on the open market. Instead, he locks in a couple mil less than Corbin for one more season?

    The players who’ve signed this far seem to be signing team friendly deals in anticipation of a lockout.
    Hal sucks

    It looks that way, unless there is something with the physical.
    When you say it's gonna happen now
    When exactly do you mean?

    ??? E-Rod's deal is not team-friendly.
    Championships since purchase by John Henry group: Red Sox 4 Yankees 1

    The Red Sox are 8-1 in their last 9 postseason games against the Yankees.

    I think he said all deals have been team friendly, so far.

    Okay, the question marks confused me.

    Personally, I'd have paid ERod more, so I do think it is team-friendly.

    He could have gotten $18.4M/1 and may opt out after getting just $28M/2. That's essentially $18.4M + $9.6M for year 2.

    If he stays for 5, he basically got $$59M/4 over the last 4 years of his deal.

    He's not old.

    No but it is guaranteed no regardless of what happens with the CBA...

    Sometimes, the " bird in the hand" philosophy wins out. Not everyone likes to roll the dice.

    That’s a rather harsh assessment of his physical appearance, you body-shamer!!

    Its only year 1 of the deal but certainly not a good start! Negative WAR so far.
