Like most extensions, it is good for the team. The FA years you are getting are age-31 and 32 so they aren't likely to be astronomically valuable, but the guarantee is small.
Paul Sporer
7:27
See above... I'll be listening
Craig Edwards
7:28
he looked safe to me.
Brandon M
7:29
I thought he was pretty clearly safe
Tyler
7:30
Do we know at all if the strike zone seems to be higher today than last year?
Craig Edwards
7:30
too early to say
Southpaw the fuzzy alligator
7:30
Micheal Brantley not looking confident out there

7:31
What do you guys think of these Umpire scouting reports?
Paul Sporer
7:31
I dig it
Craig Edwards
7:31
hard to say what was going on out there.
Brandon M
7:31
It's great to see Mazara and Gallo in the majors, but I still miss Brinson
Craig Edwards
7:32
i think you made out okay on that one.
Bernie
7:32
If it makes you feel any better, I miss Lucroy.
Paul Sporer
7:33
Excited to see what Lucroy does with a full season in Texas
Shirtless George Brett
7:34
I know Eno is gone but this camera angle in Texas is awful. Is it always this far off towards LF?
Craig Edwards
7:34
which feed are you watching?
Brandon M
7:35
I think Darvish plays for another club in 2018.
Paul Sporer
7:35
Wait, Eno's the only one who can appreciate camera angles? ;)
Craig Edwards
7:35
that seems likely, and there will be a lot of pitching out there.
Dr Evil
7:35
Does Molina's extension make a Lucroy extension pretty unlikely?
Craig Edwards
7:36
don't think they affect each other that much. Lucroy should get more years and he will be one of the more sought after FA. Makes a lot more sense for him to get to FA than Molina.

I ordered my first non-Baltimore jersey for any sport today: Javy Baez
Paul Sporer
7:37
He's so fun. Big fan of his game. Hope he curbs the Ks some and breaks out this year
Compton
7:37
Matte batting helmets are so in right now. Again, the Pirates were ahead of the curve.
Josh Alley
7:37
Who will be the likely frontrunner for Darvish?
Paul Sporer
7:37
They're so great. MLB The Show 17 got them, too
Brandon M
7:37
The angle does look off, now that you mention it
Craig Edwards
7:37
Let's try to get through one game first before we get to too much FA speculation.
Paul Sporer
7:37
It's a bit of an old school angle for sure. Didn't we have a list of all of them ranked before? Probably by Carson?
Craig Edwards
7:39
the angle seems a bit low
Compton
Bernie
7:41
Does Jose Ramirez look like Barry Bonds a little or am I crazy?
Paul Sporer
7:41
Not crazy, but I don't see it. I see Juan Uribe.
Prob

Thoughts on opening day so far? My team won so I'm obviously happy, but other than that it has been a solid opening day so far
Paul Sporer
7:42
Disappointing for this Tigers fan. It's like a meth addict was promised meth but then... no meth?!
Ben
7:42
Thoughts on this "closer by committee" rumor coming out of Anaheim? Also what the heck ever happened to Huston Street
Paul Sporer
7:42
He's hurt. I think they're just waiting for Cam Bedrosian to run away with it
Edubs
7:42
Due to scheduling conflicts, I have an auction draft starting at 9 pm tonight.. any strategies to drafting after opening day is mostly over?
Craig Edwards
7:42
but now tigers and white sox are providing justification for the day off after home openers.
7:43
some teams have two off days in the first week, which seems a bit unnecessary
