Lol. I think Flaherty gets that in arbitration.


Ninety-nine percent of everything you(Trump) say is either false, crazy, incoherent, just plain cruel, or a rancid paella of all four.

He has 6/$138 left that takes him to age 36, has been mediocre-ish overall in two out of the last three seasons, and has really extended periods where is borderline useless with a bat. I don't think there would be any takers on that contract unless you are chucking in an absolute ton of money. Even then it isn't like they would get a top 20 prospect back in return.

I think they are basically stuck with each other unless they can work out a 'bad contract for bad contract'/'change of scenery' deal down the road.

Plus he has a limited no-trade clause, so you can't send him just anywhere. Trading him now would be selling low, which is always a mistake unless you figure he's going to get even worse.

2013 .286/.370/.634 53HR (led league)
2014 .196/.300/.404 26HR
2015 .262/.361/.562 47HR (led league)
2016 .221/.332/.459 38HR

I don't know why you want to get rid of him when he's clearly about to lead the league in HR again.
