I have no idea why he doesn't take that. Get paid a lot of money to be the face of the franchise of a team located in a lovely city with a great climate. No pressure; just hang out with stacks of money on the beach. Sounds great, especially for a guy who already has won a World Series.

Per Rosenthal and others.

Report from @BNightengale, quoting persons close to Eric Hosmer, says #Royals have offered him 7 years, $147M while #Padres have offered 7 years, $140M. Whether Hosmer and Scott Boras jump at either number remains to be seen. Their goal likely is eight years and up; Hosmer is 28. [\quote]
