and, the guy who intentionally throws at Pirates players (whah whah)…ha ha ha ha ha ha
In a previous thread — https://firejerryangelo.org/2016/05/05/the-return-of-the-toothpick-chomping-idiot/#comments — our good friend Erniesarmy had this to say:
Hey Genre, get a post up about this insanity Arrieta is trying to pull. 34+ mill. for seven years? Are you kiddin me? No! Absolutely not! Tell Boras to shove it, Theo. Give him five years at 16 mill with an opt out after 3. That’s fair market value for a pitcher of 32 with one solid year behind him. No more Sorianos! Look at the Yankees! Those long term huge contracts are killing them. And Greinke is going to bankrupt Arizona. Keep that money in the farm system and for signing our good young hitters.
Arrieta has been great, but Ernie is making sense. I hope the Cubs take some time and don’t rush any decisions.
