I don't think Rendon is a bad contract. He was hurt this year, but unless it is a perpetual problem, he'll be fine for 2-3 more years, leaving only one year or so of overpay

The issue with rendon is the contract is backloaded.  Of the $245 million for the total contract, $191 million is still owed.  Next year he makes $36.7 million, then $38.7 million each of the four years after.  That plus the fact that ohtani is going to take probably $300 million to extend make this not ridiculously far fetched.  I think it’s a lot more grounded in reality then some of my other proposals

But for luxury tax purposes don’t they just take the AAV and apply that each year?

I believe so, but dollar cost per year is definitely a factor for teams not named the dodgers or Yankees.  Trouts already on a 400+ contract and they kind of need to keep ohtani to keep trout happy

It's AAV for the current lux tax, but yes, those amounts are a cash flow issue.

He probably can afford it.

Or they could trade Trout.

I would add that they have Pujols gone now and also Dexter Fowler. Which I believe is like $45 million. Justin Upton gone after 2022?  And Ohtani would be signed long term so the Rendon contract would only be an issue for a couple of years versus that.

Ohtani isnt going to leave LA because of money. They will pay him whatever he wants. They'll make it all back in jersey sales, concessions, and marketing.

Problem is they also need to build a whole pitching staff around ohtani.  I bet they go hard after the gausman/desclafini tier this offseason

I don't follow them but do they have any young starting pitching prospects that will reach MLB soon?

Detente came up this year, beyond him their pitching was thin until they literally drafted 20 pitchers with 20 picks this past draft.  Given how they’ve developed pitching though, I’m skeptical how it will pan out

The Rockies are idiots.  Maybe they would take Corbin if we give them $30 million?  They wouldn’t be able to sign a pitcher with his upside normally.  And did I also say they’re stupid?

The Angels do not believe in prospects.
