Another shitteh idea.
« on: January 27, 2020, 01:24:27 pm »
I havent heard this idea anywhere before. I know there alot of pitfalls and risks, but yall will indulge me....

Say Mookie Betts signed a 10 year contract today starting the 2021 season and his expiring contract is traded to a desperate team, effectively a true 100% rental. He could help another team win the WS, and then go back to Boston.

I know. Its got more holes in it than swiss cheese..... but it could work at the trade deadline if Boston is out of contention and wont win the WS.... I doubt they would want to face him in the WS.

Can a player even have contracts like that or so they automatically extend?

Basically a futures contract?

Interesting idea ralps  :koolaid

I know there are loans in soccer/football but aren't those typically just used for developmental purposes? What would Boston get out of the deal if Mookie went elsewhere for a season? edit: I can't imagine the Sawks being too thrilled with the idea of their franchise, once in a generational talent going elsewhere with the possibilty of suffering an injury while serving another club

signed a 10 year contract today starting the 2021 season and his expiring contract is traded

a little confused by what you said in the quote above, isn't his old contract null and void once he signs a new deal?

That turns the integrity of the league into pretty much a full on hrose bet.
