And at least not provide stupid, idiotic quotes like that, which portray it is his belief. While ultimately PGA gets the blame, I'm perfectly fine with Duq receiving his fair share too. He isn't helping himself. That's on him.


To me, that quote doesn't portray it as his belief. It says that is the organizations philosophy. As an employee, he's stating the company position.

He's on the record of saying that the liked and scouted him prior to him signing his first pro contract...  (believe they event attempted to sign him).

Has DD sat PA down and explained to him that the Japanese leagues are good and showed him why?  Has he broken down that if you look at the 20M as his salary, it doesn't look so bad?

 

Has he shown him the value of a player and that it won;t be hard for him to be worth 20M in one year?

Who knows?  If he hasn't, that's pathetic.... I would assume anyone would...... (maybe assuming incorrectly)...

We know in the entirety of Angelos tenure as owner, that he has a specific stance on obtaining international talent....

I don't think it matters what anyone says to Angelos in that regard.

I get that...but I do wonder if anyone has sat him down and shown him why you should do it for an established talent like Othani..combine that with your scouts and he should be able to be convinced about this.

 

 I can see the stance on 16 y/o who have no experience.  Othani is different.

If he had Tommy John, wonder if he could DH while rehabbing?

You think his not wanting to wait to come over wasn't suspicious. Two more years and he wouldve made so much more. If you're hurt you better take what money you can get whilevyou can get it

Wasn't he making (or going to make) much more in Japan than he is getting here?  The posting fee goes to his former team.  He's gonna get the few millions signing bonus and then make league minimum the next 3 years.

Dan has been defaulting to the "organizational philosophy" and "ownership decision" soundbytes a lot lately. Can't blame him.

Maybe you're right about his Japenese salary vs what he'll get here. I dont know. But the prestige of making the transition to being a MLB player has to mean a lot. If he broke down over there in the next few years the hype likely cools. Assuming he would actually still actually make it to MLB you have to think that kills a lot of endorsement money.

Also he only three 25 innings last year. That wasn't a red flag?

I think it's BS that WC teams have an obvious geographic advantage to signing marquee Asian players. They have the ability to choose which team they want to play for whereas smaller Asian FAs have to go to whatever team will actually sign them. IDK...just something that popped into my brain.

Yes, it definitely sucks that players with lots of competition for their services have a choice on where they end up :P
