Is Pudge Greedy?

Postby trevisc » Fri Dec 19, 2003 9:49 am

do you guys think he should have taken the 3 years 24 million from the marlins?

In my opinion he should have made at least the same amount of money that he made last year (10 million). Especially since 70% of it was deferred!

I don't blame Pudge one bit for looking elsewhere and I hope he gets the contract he deserves.

and for the marlins...

I'm not sure he should have taken it, but if I'm trying to stay within some budget, I don't offer a 32-year-old catcher a three year (or more), $30 million contract.
I'm back. Sorta.

Do not boo Johnny.

not even one who had 85 rbis?

not too many catchers do that at age 25.

I don't blame either. Pudge is looking for the most money for the longest time. I can't blame him for that. The Marlins don't want to commit $10 mil a year for 3+ years to a 32 year old catcher. I also can't blame them for that. Sometime things don't work out

I'd give Pudge $10/year no more than 2 years (AL or NL team).

I believe he had a 4-year offer out there for $32 million.

I don't blame him. Pudge settled for a 1 year deal with a ton of deferred money to prove he was/is healthy. He proved it last year, and now he wants to get paid. Nothing wrong with that.

Kind of can't blame either side. Pudge took a "prove it year" contract, and no doubt proved his ability; but w/ the Marlins payroll and priorities, they couldn't really stick that much cash into him either.....Would have loved to have seen him back there, too; but if they signed pudge, they probably couldn't have re-signed Castillo, and upped Lowell, who I think are more important, especially since they had Castro waiting in the wings (or the local greybar hotel).
If I were playing third base and my mother were rounding third with the run that was going to beat us, I'd trip her. Oh, I'd pick her up and brush her off and say, 'Sorry, Mom,' but nobody beats me.
