Every Yankees fan who has been alive at any point in Mike Trout's career.
If you like baseball, like at all, all of the big signings this year are reasons to be happy, not mad. The Rockies kept their superstar, the Padres got a superstar, the Phillies went from being total losers to having a formidable team and getting the most marketable name in the game, and the Angels kept the best player alive on their team for his whole career. And still you're seeing people complaining about the Yankees not buying a bunch of players. Those things are good for baseball, and despite what the fans of the top 3 spenders thing, it is actually bad for the sport when upper level talent is consolidated on the rich teams.
https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2019/03/white-sox-nearing-extension-with-eloy-jimenez.html1:51pm: It’s a $42.5MM guarantee over six seasons with two options thereafter that could raise the bill to $75MM, per Dinisio Soldevila of Periodico Hoy (Twitter links). There’s also said to be a $2.5MM MVP bonus.
Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic puts the promised cash at $43MM in a subsequent tweet.
I imagine he will be in the lineup on opening day. The only reason he was going to start in the minors was to manipulate his service time. That goes out the window with the contract.so maybe Eloy Jimenez will start with the white sox?
White Sox Nearing Extension With Eloy Jimenez
I'm pretty sure contracts start when they are signed and wouldn't matter towards play time o.O
I actually could still see him starting in the minors for a few reasons.
lol no you don't pay a guy 42,000,000 to ride the pine or the minor league busI actually could still see him starting in the minors for a few reasons.
A. to save face so it doesn't look like it was the only reason he was going to start in the minors.
B. he was in fact hitting .140 in the spring, so give him a little time to get his swing working on easier pitchers.
we will see, I still wouldn't be surprised if they didn't call him up until the mid of April.
