Phillies were idiots to ever pay him that kinda money, now they are crying poor?

 

Sorry suckers. You made your bed. Have fun sleeping in it for the next 4 years.

I take it you haven’t actually looked at Wheeler’s stat line from this year.

No thank you on Wheeler... do need to check in with Cincy with Sonny Gray available... contract very reasonable... very good pitcher. 

 

Or Darvish, who's rumored to be available

Just reviewed it. Am I supposed to be impressed?

So you see he was pretty good this year, right? Definitely not under-performing his contract.

Not 22 Million good though. 

 

Especially not 22 million good for age 31, 32, 33 and 34 seasons....

I've said it before and I'll say it again: if they're looking to trade for a SP from Pennsylvania, I'd rather they go for Joe Musgrove.

LIving in Pittsburgh area, but grew up MD as an Orioles fan.  Musgrove would be a very nice pickup for the Twins.  Pirates are and will continue to be a dumpster fire of minor league talent and a couple big league guys that fill out the roster.  They are in it to make money and put a team on the field that would fit nicely at the AAA level = they aren't spending big time money to keep their players as contracts expire.  Big time prospects to get Musgrove aren't needed to secure his services.
