Inaugural SAN DIEGO Charger Fan Since 1962 FUDEAN
- Sep 1, 2017
would love to keep Blake and yeah he'd have to structure it that way but guessing no way his agent accepts that kind of deal....too much chance he gets injured as a pitcher unless it guaranteed against injury and Pads would not do that. Something has to give. Just a damn shame guys like Yu got golden parachutes....too many of those are aging and injury prone. They got carried away thinking they were building a dynasty team to compete with the dogs and totally missed that mark...by a long shot. Guys like Soto, Jr. and Blake should form the backbone of the team. Build around them. But I'm thinkin its next to impossible now that they are in cost cutting mode. Bad timing and bad planning. We all know where the problem lies....unfortunately hes here another 2 years looks like...more as a tip of the hat to Peter and his life than on merit obviously.24.5 million a year.
The Pads have to set aside 33M for Soto this year.
Right now they’re at $176M. This includes arb money which includes Soto. He will not be traded during the offseason.
Think Blake would take a backend loaded deal?
