Sorry for bugging about the luxury tax questions.


Player X owns 3 year contract (10,12,15) with Team X. Player X's AAV is 12.3.

Team X trades Player X away but agrees to pay a partial of his contract (4,5,5) to Team Z.

Team X will pay Player X (4,5,5).
Team Z will pay Player X (6,7,10).

Because Player X is not on Team X's payroll, a specific year salary will only count towards the luxury tax each specific year.

Because Player X is on Team Z's payroll, Player X's AAV changes to 7.7 and it will count towards the current luxury tax.



Did I do it right? thanks again.

Because he needs to learn how to play baseball - according to the Royals. Once he learns how to hit .220-.230 like the real pros, maybe he can come up.

What difference would it make? Let him rot a couple more months, then plan an elaborate ROY campaign next year.

That's been their plan since right after the All-Star break when the team failed to get it together. It's very painful to watch, though. The pitching has finally settled in and isn't terrible anymore. They could make a nice run and very easily finish 3rd in the division with a little more offense. ****, I think most would be pretty solid with them just making it a goal to finish with less than 90 losses. I think 75 wins is a legitimate team goal at this point.

Obviously none of us have an idea, but I was curious what some of you thought.


What kind of contract do you think BJ Upton gets? Not what you think he deserves, how overrated he is, etc. What does he get on the open market?

3 years $42 to $45 million or is that way too low?

At least 11mm every year for whatever length in contract.


Age, CF, defense, home run and stolen bases make money. Upton's stiff competition is Shane Victorino who is 4 years older but obviously better.

I can see Victorino gets 4 year for up to 50mm with last year option.

Maybe it was just me, but when the bases were loaded and Posey was coming up, I just had that gut feeling that he was going to hit a grand slam. That said, I am still happy with that inning's outcome.

Start with this one: 106 strikeouts, 25 hits. Unless something bizarre happens, this man's numbers project out to make him the first relief pitcher in history with 110 more strikeouts than hits. Crazy.

Then there's this: This fellow is averaging nearly 17 strikeouts per nine innings (16.74, to be exact). How many other pitchers in history have done that? None, of course.

OK, next up: The batting average of the 216 hitters who have had the misfortune to step into the box against Chapman this year is an insane .127. Want to guess how many pitchers in the live-ball era have proved to be that unhittable in any season of 50 innings or more? Not a one. (The record is .133 against Eric Gagne in his ultra-dominating Cy Young season in 2003.)

Meanwhile, talk about dominating his league: Chapman's ERA against the NL this year -- in 47 trips to the mound -- is (ready for this?) 0.17. That's 51 2/3 innings, one earned run. NL hitters have batted .099 against him (17-for-172). He has faced 190 hitters in his own league. Just 34 have reached base.

Then there are all the strikeouts. Do you realize this guy is piling up more than four strikeouts for every hit he allows (4.24, to be precise)? Once again, nobody has ever done that in a year in which he pitched this many innings. Only Gagne in 2003 (3.7) and Billy Wagner in 1999 (3.5) have even approached it.

Bet you didn't know that Chapman has more strikeouts than the Opening Day starters for 11 teams or that he has struck out more hitters than two pitchers who made the All-Star team (Matt Harrison, Wade Miley), as well as Vogelsong or that he would lead four teams in strikeouts (A's, Royals, Blue Jays, Rockies).


Weaver
Ah, here's the clincher: I hear lots of people refer to Jered Weaver as the favorite for the American League Cy Young Award. But guess what? Chapman has racked up exactly as many strikeouts this season as Weaver has -- in 81 fewer innings.

Wow. What makes all this especially incredible is that everybody knows what's coming. And it's still hopeless.

"The guy throws fastballs," Schumaker said. "That's pretty much it. I mean, he mixes in sliders every once in a while, but when you're up there, you're getting his fastball. Everyone knows it. And not only are they not hitting it, they're not even putting it in play."

Want to talk domination? This guy has thrown 964 pitches this year. Only 9.9 percent of them (95) have been put in play. You have got to be kidding.

Chapman should be the NL CY Young.
