As far as sports card trading...that's really stupid if you think about it. Buying a piece of cardboard that has a picture of an athlete on it and think you should make money off of it?
I suppose

Odds are he will be acceptable for the Twins and completely "shutdown" DET when they play.

Padres sign Hosmer for 8 years, $144 Mil

https://sports.yahoo.com/sources-pad...045527963.html

Good luck with a mediocre 1B. Tied 14th in Away OPS last 3 years. 26th in UZR/150 (35th in DRS). $144 Mill over 8 years is not a lot of money in the grand scheme.

$5M signing bonus + 5 years at $20 per year then he can opt out. If he doesn't, the last 3 are @ $13M per year. Compare that contract to what Miggy is owed on his...6 years $196M.

Miggy will be 39 at the end and Hosmer will be 36 (only 33 at the end of the 5 years)

Comparing a HoF 1B to a mediocre 1B at different ages does what?

Hosmer will make $125 Mil 29-33. Cabrera made $114 Mil 29-33. In 14 FULL years in the Bigs, Miguel never had an OPS below .879 except for last year. In 7 FULL years in the Bigs, Hosmer never had an OPS above .879 (.882) except for last year. Who has the better chance of posting an OPS above .879 in 2018? Or even multiple years in the next 5?



Ages 26-28 Away

M. Cabrera 158 +wRC .410 OBP .568 SLG .978 OPS

E. Hosmer 115 +wRC .349 OBP .450 SLG .779 OPS


Hosmer is below average metrically on defense. Miguel actually is in the top 10. So why the love of Hosmer and his contract?

I personally could give a rats ass for the Padres and what they do. Except, these types of overvaluing contracts effects other salaries going forward.

Considering that the Tigers' lineups may be comprised of at least 2/3 AAAA hitters, there could be plenty of mediocre or worse SPs who will pitch Cy-like against them.
