A's Won't Extend Any Qualifying Offers

By Steve Adams [November 4 at 2:29pm CST]

The Athletics have announced that they will not extend qualifying offers to free agentsBartolo Colon and Grant Balfour. Neither player will require a new team to sacrifice a draft pick this winter. The move isn't surprising, given the $14.1MM value of a qualifying offer.

Mariners Make Qualifying Offer To Kendrys Morales

By Steve Adams [November 4 at 3:04pm CST]

The Mariners have officially extended a qualifying offer to switch-hitting DH/first basemanKendrys Morales, the team announced on Twitter.

The decision to extend a qualifying offer to Morales was met with surprise when it was first reported last month, but the report that Morales would decline the offer was questioned even more. MLBTR's Tim Dierkes predicted that Morales would end up back with the Mariners on a two-year, $28MM contract in his free agent profile of the Cuban-born slugger last month.

Morales, 30, batted .277/.336/.449 with 23 homers for the Mariners this season -- numbers that were a near-mirror image of his .273/.320/.467 batting line and 22 homers for the Angels in 2012.

Should Morales reject the $14.1MM offer and sign elsewhere, the Mariners would receive a compensatory draft pick at the end of the first round. However, as a good but not elite bat who is primarily limited to designated hitter, I feel that the qualifying offer is particularly damaging to Morales. He and agent Scott Boras have a week to make an official decision on the offer.

13 Free Agents Receive Qualifying Offers

By Steve Adams [November 4 at 4:19pm CST]

The deadline to extend one-year, $14.1MM qualifying offers to impending free agents has passed, and 13 players received such offers: Robinson CanoHiroki KurodaCurtis GrandersonErvin SantanaShin-Soo ChooKendrys MoralesBrian McCannMike NapoliJacoby EllsburyStephen DrewCarlos BeltranUbaldo Jimenez and Nelson Cruz.


Each of these 13 players will have one week to decide whether they wish to accept or reject the offer. In order to sign a player that rejects a qualifying offer, a team will have to forfeit a top draft pick. Because the first 11 picks are protected in this year's draft, the Astros, Marlins, Cubs, White Sox, Twins, Mariners, Phillies, Rockies, Blue Jays and Mets will forfeit a second-round pick to sign a player who rejects a qualifying offer. All other teams will be forced to forfeit their first-round pick.


The player's former team does not receive the pick that is forfeited, but rather will receive a compensatory pick at the end of the first round. As it stands, the Yankees and Red Sox each have a chance to receive three extra first-round picks in 2014 should all three of their qualified free agents reject an offer and sign with a new team.


The 13 qualifying offers represent an increase over last offseason, when only nine players received the offer. None of those nine accepted the offer, though some -- most notably Kyle Lohse -- saw their market value heavily impacted by their ties to draft pick compensation.

Stephen Drew with a qualifying offer? That one's a little surprising to me, but hey it drives up Aybar's trade value ever so slightly.


Hit .253/.333/.433 with solid defense, and he's entering a shortstop market where he's very possibly the best FA at the position.


Odds would seem pretty low that he can't do better elsewhere(at least get a multi-year deal) seem pretty low, so the risk is pretty minimal for Boston.

Can you post something other than a derogatory remark toward Arte, Management and some of the players?


This shit is getting old. The sarcasm is like nails on a chalkboard. 

Just as soon as this org gets it act together with how to put a solid team together.

And just how is it nothing but derogatory remarks, when I've talked at length about Trout, Weave, propped Wilson for a good 2013, propped DDLR for his breakthrough after a decade, been a supporter of Bourjos in the face of critiques, etc, etc. 

Is it more than needed?   Yes, but not 100% of what I post!


Is it not true that Arte Moreno is one of a select few owners who pretty much never makes a qualifying offer or in the old days arb to players, going back a decade?

More names:


The @Phillies will not make qualifying offers to Roy Halladay or Carlos Ruiz, reports @ToddZolecki. They are now free agents. #HotStove


Talk about falling off a cliff.  Halladay was considered the best pitcher in baseball at one point, with discussions about Hall of Fame possibility, and now, not even a qualifying offer.
