Hey Headache, maybe you can help with this one. Daniel Murphy is offered 15.8 million by the Mets. He refused that and eventually signs with the Nats for 3 years at 37.5 million. Averaging 12.5 million per season. He stood to make more with the Mets and then become a free agent again after the 2016 season. If he has a better year than 2015, he could be in line for another raise for the 2017 season. Why would he do this?

Guaranteed money. He could fall off a cliff this year.

Sure, but it's only an additional 2 years. Does he have that little faith in his abilities? I mean I guess I couldn't care less what he does. He's the Nats problem now. If I were him, I would have gone to an AL team and transitioned myself to being strictly a DH. He's a liability in the field.

It's three years of security as opposed to one. I've seen the same thing happen over the last few years a few times. Baseball players can be fragile.

Because 37.5 is more than 15.8?

Junior and Piazza are in! Bagwell, Hoffman, and Raines come up short.

About damn time.

Shame about Bagwell, but it looks like he'll make it in next year.
