Ervin Santana still wants $50 million

Ervin Santana is sitting at home. Meanwhile, spring training games will start this week. His price is not coming down any further, however, as CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman reports Santana is still seeking a contract around four years and $50 million.

Yes, it’s what Garza and Ubaldo got, but they signed earlier and didn’t have draft pick compensation attached to them. At this point you have to think Santana is more likely to get what he wants if he either waits for the pitching injuries to pile up as spring wears on — as they always do — or to wait until June when the draft pick compensation falls off.

    Ubaldo did have draft pick compensation attached to him.

      plus Ubaldo only signed a week ago…

    Craig isn’t normally this sloppy…

      I have it from a reliable source that it Calcaterra’s doppelgänger who wrote the piece.

      He keeps me nicely shaped.

    I still want $50 million

      Me too!

      Lol. Me too, but just my initial asking price. Will settle for 3/ 33

        okay, but only if you’re using PED’s and can convince me that you won’t get caught

    • bostonboresme - Feb 25, 2014 at 2:39 PM

      I could use fifty bucks.

    Yeah, and I wanna bang Rachel McAdams, but guess what? in both cases, it’s not gonna happen.

    Craig, it was cute when you told us your daughter wrote the article. This is bordering on child labor.

    so…is Santana still asking for that $50 million for the 5th year? Seems pretty likely that if he would have come out asking for something like this in the first place, rather than $100 million over 5 years, he’d be in a uniform right now. No sympathy.

    This why u don’t need agents. Have the team fax u offer. Then have a lawyer look over offer payment 250 an hr

    Come on bluejays just pay the man already!

    So we can’t blame the draft pick compensation or Scott Boras for all the late signings, just great expectations. Santana might be as disappointed as Pip.
