    People complain about these deals, but from a financial security standpoint with the way the pay points are staggered, it make sense. Why play for peanuts for another two years, hoping you avoid injury or a prolonged slump before your arb hearings, when you can get something locked in now and still be at a good age for the real payday after the contract is done?

    It’s more about the 2 extra years of control. This isn’t some silly deal for Harris, it guarantees him generational money.

    My biggest current concern is that someone like the yankees steals AA from us. What’s his contract situation?

    also people just really wanna be here. pretty obvious AA and snit (as stupid as he is) have created a culture that players love

    Don't know why you'd walk away from this for any other team honestly. If he signs Dansby he'll have an entire lineup of young studs locked up for a decade. That's unheard of.

    Supposedly his defense is just ok as of now and he's going to end up being huge when he fills out. Who knows though.

    Give me Vaughn. Dansby while a very solid player has had mostly average seasons. This year has been his best by far. I am not giving a guy with one great season at age 28 a ton of money. I think Vaughn is better than Bae anyways and dying to see what he can do at short. Vaughn looks athletic enough to play there to me.

    Scouts don't love Vaughn at short long term. Battery Power's main dig on him there is arm accuracy.

    Idk if it will be publicized, but I want to see what Dansby (or I suppose his agent) asks for.

    If he’s willing to play ball for something under $20M AAV, I think it will be worth going for it. After the Freddie debacle, that agent should know better than to play chicken with AA.

    not really. he’s played 60 career games and just locked up 72m (likely 102m). that’s a more than fair deal

    It just takes advantage of the unbelievably club-friendly system that exists. Money will be much better off for the first five years of that deal than if we strung him along through arbitration.

    The only thing I really question for Money is the club options. I'm not sure how those benefit him, outside of the buyouts if something were to go wrong. Ron's deal is very similar though.

    Think that’s where he had to give in order to get. Gotta give up more than two seasons of FA to hold the money early with a guaranteed amount if your leg falls off tomorrow.

    Those are 100% for the club’s benefit. Money’s benefit is getting $50Mish more guaranteed that wouldn’t have been on the table if he had to go through his service years toward FA.

    Ron’s is a little more lucrative, but p much.

    The casuals (read Mets fans) are losing their shit claiming tampering, extortion, etc. because they don’t understand how fucked up the service time windows are in the league and AA does.

    I also think there are a lot of people who don’t consider the risk on the club’s end either; Money has obviously been incredible in this brief span, but so was Ozuna for roughly the same period in 2020 (Money is obviously a more well-rounded player, but you know what I mean). The only difference is if Harris ends up busting, it will be a much less expensive mistake because AA was aggressive early.

    The crazy thing is the 8/$72M for Money and the 8/$100 for Ron, which excludes the options, actually includes the buyouts ($5M and $10M, respectively) being applied in the calculation. Money will actually only make $67M over 8 years and Ron will only make $90M. Money would actually earn $1M more during his two option years than Ron during his ($35M to $34M).

    They’re great deals for the club and the player. Ron is either going to make bank years after underperforming or make $700 million when he’s 31.
