The deal includes a third-year vesting option for the 2025 season
We had an 8x10 of Jake on the living room wall, next to the TV. It came down the day he signed with Texas. And, hey, good for him. He got the big payday that will protect his family for life. Any of us would have done the same. Still, the wife and I took it down, not out of anger, but to look ahead. I have a Polar Bear 8x10 coming in the mail now. LOL
subtract $43 million from funds available to re-sign Nimmo and perhaps Rondon or Bassitt. At BEST, maybe one of these signings happens. Without Nimmo, the 4 days Verlander is on the bench, is 4 days with an outfielder less talented overall.
There is no way this can go wrong.
But the upside of Verlander and Mad Max is enough to make me smile. (Better keep Peterson and Megill stretched out just in - Justin? case.)
WHOO HOO !!!!!
