wow! poor schwerzer.. one injury and likely subpar season and he'll never see that 144m gift he turned down. miggs at least isnt delusional and was like let me get this straight y'all.. u jabros wanna extend me with no threat of walkin like that ortiz guy when i have TWO years left on my deal and coming off a subpar playoff due to lingering late season injuries for the second year in a row as i am about to hit age 32 for 8 additional years? oh really... bet he considered firing his agent right there and then too say HECKs YEAHHH!
instead in less than a day of "negotiation", he promised to not push the 300m threshold like greedy a-roids.. instead 10 years for only 292m.. plus he politley requested and got 2 additional club options for 30m each at age 42 in another win-win.. likely learned that from papi.. shocking they didnt do a vesting thing. bottom line this is what henry should have done voluntarily with papi. this is called taking care of ur boys. ditto with lester. if greedy, could wait for free agency and get grienke $ no prob.. talking SEVEN years and 190m, rather than the likely 6 year and 125m discount he'll get.. schwerzer is a total yankee mercenary jabro type.
give miggy, papi and lester credit for being classic gentleman in this here age of me and GREED! SOX SHOULD EMULATE THE tiggies more though in select cases.
