Strasburg: Nookie’s Watershed Moment

May 23, 2014

I don’t know how many people were seriously in on Strasburg. Three for sure, I heard rumours of a couple more. But the interesting bit here isn’t that everybody wanted him, it’s that at time of press, Nookie’s still got him. With that many people bidding, you would have figured he’d have gotten an offer he liked…

…except Nookie’s asking too much. He essentially wanted three-for-one from me, and I saw another of his counters: three-for-one again.

The winds have changed for the S.S. Nookie. He hasn’t cashed in yet, but it seems he’s going to start valuing his own players more favourably.

Shaggy may have drank the last of the summer wine. A new, tough negotiator may be upon us.
