Can't be -- JBJ is not remotely an everyday player
He’s a defensive replacement and platoon guy, and even then against only some righties.
It won't be 2 years of good performance -- it's 1 year of bad performance + dead money, or 3 years of good performance

Don't mind selling high on Renfroe, but this is a bad deal unless there's some money coming back or the prospects are true studs (doubtful)

The player option would only be picked up if we would be about to waive him anyway
So it’s either:
1 year of bad performance at 6MM + 1 year of dead money at 4 MM
1-3 years of good performance at ~35MM
There’s no universe where it ends up as 2 years of good performance at 10MM.

I was just thinking this -- Scherzer turning into a pumpkin exactly this year after dominating for a decade would be entirely on-brand for the Mets

Wacha is fine as a #5/6 starter who you don't mind ditching in June -- but 7 MM is way too much to pay for that
He made 3MM each of the past 2 years with a negative bWAR. Why were we so desperate to sign this guy in November while doubling his salary?

Logged on just to rec this post -- this is exactly how you have to view this deal
It’s fair for both sides.
A little risk for the Rays on the back side, some downside for Franco that he won’t get that monster free agent deal in 6 years.

Stunned that he got even remotely this much
I thought the QO was a mistake — 18MM even for 1 year is way too much.
5/77 is an insane overpay for a guy who you’re never going to be enthusiastic about taking the ball in the postseason.
Best possible outcome for us. A frustrating player gone, and a draft pick sent back, which probably makes Bloom less hesitant to sign a different QO free agent.
