Nah it was a good move, over paying for League is going to force the Giants to lose Affledt, the way I see it Colletti is paying League the same $5 million he was getting this year, and an extra $2.5 million to see the Giants lose Affeldt. ;-D


If Colletti wanted to force the Giants to lose Affeldt they could have offered him the contract first. Then not only do we lose him but he goes to the hated Dodgers and he's a better pitcher than League to boot.


Affeldt is 34 yrs old, paying him 7.5 mil when he will be 37/8 is more foolhardy than giving in to League.

he's 33 which means it'd go through his age 35/36 season. obviously it's silly, but it makes about as much sense as giving league 3 years.

This is terrible. They're already trying to get rid of Ethier. I get that they have an unlimited budget but this is akin to flushing $20M down the toilet. Was Colletti just bored?

overreaction?

in 2011 League had 2.79 ERA, 1.08 WHIP with 37 saves on a Seattle team that only had 67 wins.
as for K/9. Jim Johnson lead all of baseball with 51 saves while having 5.37 K/9. K are nice, but a pitcher can still be effective without getting high K.

I don't know how bad the $ is because I don't really know what other closers are making in comparison. but seeing how closers can change so often I don't think a team should be paying so much money for a non elite closer. but it's not like the Dodgers are tight on money, they clearly have plenty to spend.

Wrong, nothing but an unfounded rumor.

Interesting article on the new CBA rules:
http://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/index.ph ... ove-rules/

Relief pitchers are the other area where we’ll likely see significant change in strategy due to the new compensation rules. Because the Elias rating drastically overvalued relievers, they made up a disproportionate number of Type A and B free agents who received arbitration offers, as teams could essentially treat their bullpens as revolving doors and get numerous additional prospects as a result. The qualifying offer is going to remove compensation from every middle reliever in the sport, which may drive salaries up for some of the guys who have previously come with the loss of a draft pick for their new teams.


May this have impacted Colletti's decision ?

Nice. I knew there was a reason I hung on to League in my contract league after he was traded. He's still got another year at $1 on my contract.
