Rosenthal's Latest Video: A-Rod, Willis
There's a new video up with Ken Rosenthal contributing. Let's see what the man had to say this time:
- According to Rosenthal, Alex Rodriguez will opt out, and he will get $30MM a year. The coverage of this story is just beginning, unfortunately.
- The Marlins have been telling teams they won't move Dontrelle Willis; they think they're still in contention. The Fish are 7.5 out in the NL East and 8 out for the Wild Card. The simulations I've seen give the Marlins a 1-3% chance at making the playoffs. Would Willis command a stronger package of prospects if dealt now or during the offseason? Dave George thinks his stock will continue to fall, and he needs a change of scenery (Willis heard boos at home for maybe the first time last night). However, Rosenthal's contention is supported by Juan C. Rodriguez - apparently, only one scout was at Willis's start last night (a Royals guy who lives in Florida anyway).
