Cardinals absolutely had to have Goldschmidt longterm. Beyond that they gave up a fair amount to get him, Ozuna’s shoulder isn’t 100 percent and he’s eligible for free agency after the year, as was Goldy of course, and Carpenter is 2 years from free agency. So good job by them.

There are no talks with JD Martinez at present, and it feels like the Red Sox are awaiting JD’s year-end call on the first of his 3 opt-outs. GM Dave Dombrowski said, “We’re hopeful he doesn’t opt out.”

Dombrowski suggested Opening Day is the deadline for player contract negotiations. “We’re focused on winning this year. I think the players are into that ... Unless something unexpected happens, we’re not going to do anything once the season starts.”

Red Sox have several stars eligible for free agency after this year or next. After 2019: Bogaerts, Sale, JD (both this year/next), Porcello. And GM Dave Dombrowski said, “We know we won’t be able to keep all of them under today’s system and finances (meaning 1 or more will go).”

Bregman has escalators that could boost his contract from 100M by 13.5M to 113.5M. If he wins MVP in 2021-23 his pay rises by 1.5M in 2023 and 2024, 750k for 2nd, 500K for 3rd each year. multiple MVPs trigger more escalators. If he wins MVP 2021-23 his 28.5M salary goes to 37M.
