Let’s go baby:

Well that’s a lot of money, but it’s not our money!* Well done, John Middleton. Dude wants to win. This is how you do it. You go out and pay for Bryce Harper, then spend on Kyle Schwarber and Nick Castellanos. You over the threshold, and get rewarded for it with the NL Pennant. Then you say “fuck it, I’m not satisfied,” and look to upgrade the team again.

Trea Turner is a 29-year-old World Series champion and two-time All Star. 2021 NL batting champ. 100 RBI last season. Now he’s a Phillie.

Let’s fuckin go.

*worth pointing out, of course, that this is a relatively low AAV, so they’ve given themselves enough flexibility to build in the near-term and go for a title. who gives a shit what happens 10 years from now anyway
