Was just about to come post the same thing. He’s a good arm but a bit fragile. He won’t cost a draft pick though. At 32, would he sign for 3 years and under $50M? Probably not, but that’s about what I’d be looking to spend on a starting pitcher if I was the Cards.December 12, 2019 at 11:37 am #116599Bw52ParticipantPaid - Annual
I just don`t see spending that kind of money on a guy who has only pitched 150 innings 3 times in 6 years and will be 33 when the season starts.Too many risks IMHO.Too pricey,too fragile.December 12, 2019 at 1:36 pm #116617gscottarParticipantPaid - AnnualDecember 12, 2019 at 3:05 pm #116636Nigel TParticipantPaid - Three Months
This is the move. Two years at 40 would be a great fit.How long does he want to stay? Make premium bucks and then get to choose where to experience it all again might have appeal to a visitor.December 13, 2019 at 2:13 pm #116725December 13, 2019 at 2:33 pm #116727GameCardParticipantFree
Anything Bernie says I usually think the opposite.December 13, 2019 at 3:41 pm #116730CariocaCardinalParticipantPaid - Monthly
That would make you as big of a flip flopper as he is!December 22, 2019 at 10:26 pm #117397
Breaking: Ryu to Jays. 80M, 4 years.

Wow. Bullet dodged. He was my favorite target at two years. I was out at three. I’m glad the cards were too.December 23, 2019 at 6:28 am #1174121964cardsParticipantPaid - Annual

It would not have mattered even if it was a 2 year deal at the same price the Cards FO would have been to cheap to do it anywayDecember 23, 2019 at 9:11 am #117430
I would not have guessed that this signing would be spun into a negative for the Cardinals…
Anyway, most reactions I have seen are that the Jays made a bad decision.
Competing thoughts on the Blue Jays' and their investment in Hyun-Jin Ryu…
1. It's good to see them try to win, in this era of tanking.
2. The risk of spending $80 million on a 32-year-old pitcher who has reached 160 IP once in the last five seasons is extraordinary.
