 Alex Gordon signed to a $300M contract after one season fueled by a .360 BABIP

A major announcement would be something that surprises the life out of everyone and a contract extension doesn’t exactly fall into that category. 

I can see it now and Royals want to announce that they have traded Hosmer and Gordon to the Jays for Lind, Snider, Valbuena, Litsch, and Drabek.  lol.  Now that is a major announcement that would have fans talking for months.  lol.

Fed up with recent contract negotiations, Alex Gordon will announce he is returning to the University of Nebraska for his final year of eligibility.  He hopes to raise he draft stock and get “Andrew Luck Money” as the Browns new franchise QB next season.

Hopefully its NOT an extension for overrated Francoer or due-for-a-regression Gordon.

3 years 6 months ago

 You obviously don’t follow the team very well if you think that guy is going to regress, at least in a major way.

They are merging with the Marlins and taking their talents to South Beach…ok, getting old.

Miami would run that white-bread team out with mariachis and deflated rafts.
