If other teams value THEIR players as they do, there's no reason why we can't put a big price tag on RA.You want him?Gotta pay for him.
Except, of course.... when it comes to re-signing him to the Mets. Then he isn't worth much at all.
"Gotta pay for him."
Actually, no, you don't HAVE to. SF grossly overpaid for Pagan. Was anyone else bidding on him?
If this FO decided not to pay someone what they were asking, I'll bash them ONLY if their offer was awful and not what I view the player's value is.
<<"Actually, no, you don't HAVE to. SF grossly overpaid for Pagan. Was anyone else bidding on him?"
Rosenthal had written a day or 2 ago that both Philly had SF had offered 4 yrs. Don't know if anyone else was interested.
MLB Trade Rumors ranked Pagan the 11th best FA on the market and the fifth best outfielder ahead of Shane Victorino. They projected Pagan seeking a 5/$60 million deal.
He's also the player Fan Graphs called the most underrated player in baseball.
He got what he's worth.
