He is signed through 2015. FOUR more seasons. And I'd bet the Tigers don't give it to him. There are always wiser ways to spend 250 million.

That's probably true. California is 12th in the nation is taxes compared to 45th in Missouri. And Southern California is one of the five most expensive places in the country to live. Your money will go a lot further in St. Louis than Anaheim.

But you'd have to live in St. Louis. Your money goes further because there is less to do. I don't think Pujols has to worry either way about money running out.

Soooo hows everyone feel about 22 year old Matt Adams?

AA: 115 Games, 139 hits, 23 2b, 2 3b, 32 homers, 101 rbi, 90 strikeouts

Legit prospect or AAAA player?

If the Royals had gone after him, he'd be set since he's got an off-season place in Leawood and is from KC. And it's cheap as **** to live here.

by the end of year 3? Doubt it. I think his skillset allows him to stay this good for the next 5 years. I think by year 7 or 8 it won't look good but he should still be worth 2-3 wins rather than the 5-7 win level

Are people seriously ripping on Pujols for leaving? Do you not know how much 40 million dollars is? Stop with the whole self righteous loyalty ********, you don't know what you would do until you actually get put in that situation.

Darvish is officially coming over to MLB. There's no doubt in my mind the Yankees win the bid for him.

Can I please stop hearing about this dumb Rangers TV money? Even with that they come no where near what the Yanks have to offer. The Yanks are just as desperate for a frontline SP as well.

The only issue I have with this way of thinking is that HE JUST CAME OFF A WORLD SERIES... Not to mention that is his 2nd in the last 5 years.

Players constantly say its about winning a championship. Well he just did and he is going to leave the team that is bound to be even better next season.
This move is all about the money and at the point of 40 million... Seriously? 220 is a ton of money. Does he need another ******* mansion or maybe 12 god damn more cars. Maybe he needs to provide for his kids kids kids.

They built a team around him and he basically just shat in the face of every Cardinals fan because he needed more ******* money because 220 million isn't enough.

So he can't win a championship in LA? Maybe it is about the money. Newsflash-that's why players play. You can say that 40 million isn't a lot of money in the grand scheme of things, but once again I think if you were put in that situation you wouldn't see it as so cut and dry.

Why wouldn't the Yankess pay 70 million or so to CJ Wilson then if they are desperate for frontline pitching? The Rangers are flush with cash, have had a history of making big deals and need a frontline starter just as badly.

I'm more skeptical about the Yankees interest in Darvish than GF1080 is, but I'm pretty sure the Yankees don't consider Wilson front line pitching. You could ask the same thing about the Rangers. Why didn't they just re-sign Wilson if they need pitching?

The one thing I think the Yankees do like about Darvish is that they can't be taxed via revenue sharing on the posting bid.

Darvish has a much higher upside than Wilson. Also, as Jug just mentioned the Yanks don't have to pay tax on the posting bid but just the contract itself. The only big deal the Rangers ever made was with with A-Rod and that was a totally different owner. I know they have some money to spend but they haven't gone crazy with that cash yet.

Rangers felt they could replace Wilson with Feliz. Going younger in the rotation. Plus, they have a lot of guys due up to hit FA that they'll need to lock up and they are probably of higher importance. Napoli, Hamilton, Nelson Cruz, Kinsler are all due within a year or 2 to hit the market

Yankees probably like Darvish more because of the age factor. Red Sox need pitching badly to but you wonder if they will be hesitant after the Dice-K signing

Is it expected that Darvish's bid to be over the 51 million for Dice-K?

I don't think anyone really know because it's such a crazy process. I haven't heard any expected bids yet. I bet some teams are scared off because of Dice-K so I expect something around $50 million or lower.

Good points on the Tax thing. The Rangers made a pretty big commitment to Beltre last year. It's been only a year since the new ownership took over. The TV deal is being talked about in every topic because how crazy it is. 1.6 Billion over the next 20 years. Plus they get a 80 million dollar upfront payment this year. I can easily see them going toe to toe with the Yankees on this.

Dice-K's actual contract was only 52 million over 6 years. Which isn't a terrible deal. I wonder if Darvish would be looking to get the same thing. It's just the fee that is so much money.

I didn't say that... but wouldn't you think that it would be an easier road on a team that just won it with 95% of its core pieces coming back... Along with the addition of Wainwright.

Instead of going to a team that is going to have to contend with the WS Runner up two seasons in a row... Not to mention the Yankees, Red Sox, Rays and Tigers?

To respond to your other post no... I have never been in that situation so no I don't know exactly how I would react. But I do know if I was playing for a championship and for a team that has loved me and taken care of me for 11 years 40 million might not seem like a massive difference.

It'll most likely be $100 million dollars between the fee and contract.
