    Certainly is strange that they wouldn’t… unless they wanted possibly 2 years before the opt outs.

    Seems like it would have been ideal for both sides. Not locked into him more than 3 years at most and he gets to test the market every year if he’s feeling sexy.

    If true, that's pretty sad if the Astros couldn't match that. That's about as low-risk as you could ever get for a player of that caliber.

    How can you not match that, just for the ability to keep Bregman, Correa and Altuve together.

    Of all the scenarios I envisioned, this is one I simply didn't see coming. How on EARTH do we not beat this contract?

    1 year later Correa opts out to his REAL new team/deal so Boras gets his fat check. Mark my words.

    Agreed. Even if he suffers a fluke injury at some point this year, he’s going to opt out regardless given the market resets itself every season and total contract values go up… or he decides to collect all the money and re-up as a 30 year old.

    Almost 100% guaranteed to opt out…. Minus some sort of career ending injury (of which insurance likely pays out anyways).

    I’m very disappointed in Crane and I usually back him. He dropped his sack big time on this.

    Basically only $3 million more than the AAV on the low ball contract they token offered at the start of FA.

    Very strange shenanigans. Must have come down to the no trade clause or something….
