Brutal stretch for the Seattle rotation at the absolute worst time.

@nsxtasy @Mike Petriello there's a huge risk that the contract you suggest never materializes, and then he gets less than the option he had guaranteed.

@nsxtasy @Mike Petriello He's been mediocre this year, and he's not getting younger. I don't think he'd get that, and no agent would tell him to skip the option to risk it.

@nsxtasy that's a very, very big risk.

@DBrim But if CLE sweeps, the wild card gets more fun.

@Hormone Mike @Mike Petriello yes, Matt would definitely need a new agent.

@Tymathee @Mike Petriello there's just a 0.0% chance he declines that option though, so in reality, he's not a free agent.

@Super Catfishin Turbo HD Remix  @Mike Petriello also you gave BJ Upton and Dan Uggla all of the dollars.

@thestevesaxtrio @Mike Petriello @DBrim sure, but why not include hat size or SAT score? RBI totals just don't tell you that much interesting about a single player.

@thestevesaxtrio @Mike Petriello @DBrim No, it isn't. 


Raw totals based on opportunities are inherently flawed. It's the same thing for K-Rod's record-setting save season. It's not that he didn't do well, because he did, but he also set the MLB record for save opportunities.


This is easily solved by looking at percentage of runners driven in, not raw total. I don't have the numbers handy, so not sure what they say, but it's very possible that Ethier has been just as good at driving in runners and has recieved a ton less chances to do so.

@thestevesaxtrio @DBrim  Strawman argument. No one is saying Rojas is as good as Gonzalez, or even a major league hitter.


The point is that RBI is not how you would determine that.

@thestevesaxtrio @Mike Petriello @Super Catfishin Turbo HD Remix those guys were great because they got a ton of hits, walks, homers etc.


That their teammates happened to get on base in front of them (or not) doesn't make them more or less great.

@joelydanger @bpamd3 @ThtsaPaddlin @Mike Petriello well, he never really threw that many fastballs, so that's not much different.
